The Court Dress of Judges and Practicing Lawyers
After the Court abolished the requirement of morning dress
for all attorneys appearing before the United States Supreme
Court by the Court's rules, the Office of the Solicitor General
maintained the practice. When the Solicitor General (or any of
the deputies) appears before the U.S. Supreme Court, they wear
morning dress, with striped trousers, grey ascot, waistcoat, and a
cutaway morning coat. A feminized version is sometimes worn
by female deputies, which consists of the same garments tailored
to female measurements.

Bernstein; Matthew
Jordan Bilker, Michael
Andrew Burns, Patrick
Theodore Daley, Amber
Leigh Falkenbach,
Gerard Gebhart, Ryan
Rocap Grace, and
Kathleen Ann O'Connor,
on motion first made to the Court in this behalf by Michael
J. Davey, Esquire, were duly admitted and qualified as an
Attorney and Counsellor of the Supreme Court of the United
States on the 16th day of January, in the year of our Lord two
thousand eighteen.
The pantsuit was introduced in the 1920s, when a small
number of women adopted a masculine style, including
pantsuits, hats, canes and monocles. However, the term, "trouser
suit" had been used in Britain during the First World War, with
reference to women working in heavy industry. During the
1960s pant suits for women became increasingly widespread. In
1966 Yves Saint-Laurent introduced his Le Smoking, an evening
pantsuit for women that mimicked a man's tuxedo. In Britain
a social watershed was crossed in 1967 when Lady Chichester,
wife of the navigator Sir Francis Chichester, wore a trouser suit
when her husband was publicly knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.
Until 1993, women were not permitted to wear pantsuits (or
pants of any kind) on the United States Senate floor. Senators
Barbara Mikulski and Carol Moseley Braun wore pants onto the
floor in defiance of the rule, and female support staff followed
soon after, with the rule being amended later that year by Senate
Sergeant-at-Arms Martha Pope to allow women to wear pants
on the floor so long as they also wore a jacket, thus allowing
pantsuits, among other types of clothing. Further popularized in
August, 2008, we recall the reference of presidential campaign
staff as "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pantsuits."

The European Union's top
court ruled June 12, 2018,
defending French fashion designer Christian Louboutin's claim
to trademark red soled high-heel shoes. The European Court
of Justice ruled that Van Haren, a Dutch company that sold
similar shoes, had infringed the trade mark. The court said that
it did not matter that its shoes were different in shape. It said
the registration of the trademark "sought solely to protect that
application of a colour to a specific part of that product."
