Our solicitor gowns are made from high twill-weave quality polyester, and feature a flap collar and stiffened yolk. Our robes are suitable for use in courtrooms around the world.
Up until the 14th Century, men of learning wore robes as signs of their status although, back then, they were generally brightly coloured. While other professions and fields of academia slowly dropped this tradition, legal professionals continued wearing robes when appearing in court.
Today's legal gowns are black and are worn by solicitors and barristers in the UK and across the world.
