Keep It Simple: Gray And Red For Court
When you're going to court to argue about important things, simplicity is crucial. Outlandish, or even unusual, clothing can distract from the more trenchant and incisive portions of your legal argument, of which there are, doubtless, many, along with subordinate clauses, interjections, and appositives, which are bad habits, especially for bloggers, who are, often, devilishly handsome, as bloggers go. Here, a suit from Filene's by the now-defunct Hickey line from Hickey Freeman, tie bar (as usual) from JAB, shirt from Paul Fredrick, and tie from who-knows-where all complemented each other very close to the chest, so to speak, if you will, as it were. Shoes were probably black cap-toes.
If you take nothing else away from DD, take away the fact that all dress is performative, even if you don't intend for it to be.
