Can a Trademark Look Make You a More Successful Lawyer?
It seems these days we are seeing a big nod to the 1960s. On the Silver Screen, both Men In Black III and the new X-Men film are apparently going to be set in the sixties. Mad Men will be returning for a new season. Fashion runways are filled with sixties inspired fashions while songs by artists like Cee Lo favor an up-beat Motown sound. Commercials feature some of the era's best songs. Volkswagen is reintroducing their iconic VW Bus. I've even noticed a few attorneys sporting fedoras.
The fedora may be just the thing I need to make me a successful lawyer. Several lawyers of note have adopted trademark looks. Maybe that's the key? Gloria Allred wears signature red dresses.Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox wore a trademark bow tie. Ron Kuby wears a ponytail. Gerry Spence wears a cowboy hat and a frilly buckskin leather jacket that would make any Whitesnake fan proud. Even Matlock wore an iconic powder blue seersucker suit. Maybe a fedora could be my thing. Hopefully, Charlie Sheen didn't ruin it for me.
I hope Charlie Sheen hasn't done to fedoras what Jon Gosselin has done to Ed Hardy Shirts. You see someone in one of those Ed Hardy shirts and you automatically assume the guy is a cretin. If the fedora thing is done, maybe I'll go the Gerry Spence route. I always wanted to be a cowboy.
