Brad Moore
Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP, Litigation, 2003 call
Brad refuses to settle for anything other than stylish.  Bright colours like maroon and magenta get more billable hours when paired with a classic blue pinstriped shirt.
Shirt, $155, by J.P. Tilford. Tie, $175, by Ermenegildo Zegna.


Scot Patriquin
Patriquin Law: Entrepreneurial Solutions, 2003 call
Scot’s business approach echoes that of his wardrobe — bold, colourful individual style. His eye-catching striped shirt gets a new look when paired with a similarly vibrant tie.
Shirt, $280, by Etro. Tie, $150, by Etro.


Usman M. Sheikh
Lenczner Slaght, Litigation, 2006 call
Usman dresses the part of stylish litigator (sans robes) in warm earth tones and graphic prints. Avoid any courtroom or closet drama and suit up with this muted mix of neutrals.
Shirt, $170, by J.P Tilford. Tie, $145, by Harry Rosen.


Ben Alarie
University of Toronto, Faculty of Law, Contracts and Tax law professor, 2004 call
Ben could teach the new rules of law and style in his crisp pinstriped shirt and dashing dark tie. Shades of grey soften the look of basic black and add dimension to classic white.
Shirt, $265, by Canali. Tie, $165, by Valentino.


Joseph Cheng
Department of Justice Canada, Civil Litigation, 2002 call
Joseph brings a little drama to the Department of Justice with a sleek, monochromatic look. The modern pairing of slim-fit shirt and narrow tie creates an up-to-the minute ensemble.
Fitted shirt, $165, by BOSS Hugo Boss.  Tie, $110, by BOSS Hugo Boss.


Adam Rambert
Department of Justice Canada, Civil Litigation – Regulatory Law, 2006 call
An elegant solid-coloured shirt and rich contrasting tie up the fashion factor of our federal bureaucracy.  Adam’s spirited style does justice to the trend of mixing light and dark hues together handsomely.
Shirt, $375, by Armani. Tie, $165, by Valentino.


Charles Finlay
Torys, Litigation, 2006 call
The classic palette of a white on white French cuff shirt gets instantly updated with a chic pop of purple. Charles’ look proves that striking plaid wins style points in the courtroom and out for cocktails.
Shirt, $295, by Ermenegildo Zegna. Tie, $145, by Burberry.
