    Depends on what its for, most judges take it as a sign of disrespect though, and they will treat you accordingly.

    At very least wear propper slacks and a shirt, show some respect and the judge will be more than likely slightly more lenient than if you didnt

    Find a gay judge, and wear assless chaps and a mesh vest.

    If you're unsure if the judge is gay, just assume that he is. Better safe than sorry

    Had a traffic violation couple weeks ago and just went in jeans and a collard shirt. Heck, you're standing behind a podium, so it's not like she's really gonna see anything except your upper body anyway.

    years ago, I had a violation for cali stopping at an intersection + headphones :)rofl:).

    went in with jeans and a t-shirt at 9am, judge deferred my fines so they were off the record and I only owed $50 on $202 worth of fines.

    The podium was in the middle of the aisle w/seats on the left and right, so she may have seen them, but it took me less than 3 seconds to get from seat to podium.

    At any rate, if he does nice jeans and a shirt, he'll probably be dressed way better than a lot of people. One dude was in the court w/shorts and wifebeater. :eek4:

    He needs to have a real Boa Constrictor draped over his shoulders. If he brings a feather boa, he'll just get double-tapped in the forehead by the bailiff.

    NEGATORY.

    I've been to court many many times (only twice for things I've done)...

    and if the judge thinks you're trying to look like a lawyer, then he'll be tougher on you.

    That came from a judge's mouth.

    He prefered people to appear "Working class" but dressed casually. Polo shirt, khakis, dress shoes and a belt. That way you look honest and clean, but don't look like you "can afford" a hefty fine...

    He said it drove him nuts when two people would walk into the courtroom and he wouldn't know which one was the lawyer etc...
