Faculty/Lawyer Dress Codes: No Flip Flops

I have previously blogged the issue of faculty dress codes:

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Faculty/Lawyer Dress Codes: No Flip Flops:


Does this mean that men can wear leggings, miniskirts, bareback dresses, low cut V-necks, halter tops, spaghetti strap shirts, and clogs?

I mean, this is Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP. If they don't know expressio unius est exclusio alterius -- i.e., the items not on the list are assumed not to be covered (especially given that they are included in another sartorial list) -- then who does.

Break out the miniskirts and V-necks boys. It is gonna be a fun summer!

No flip-flops? John Kerry could never work there. He was for the dress code before he was against it.

I was told that Price Waterhouse used to require its employees to carry umbrellas. They didn't ban flip-flops, though.
