This is the lawyer’s ‘uniform’, which they must wear when pleading in court. It consists of a long black woollen ‘garment’, with broad sleeves and with a white folded jabot in front, a piece of black woollen material on the left shoulder, folded over the shoulders with a white fur at each end. The headwear, the ‘baret’ or wig, is not worn anymore. Magistrates (judges) wear togas which are slightly different from those of lawyers. Their togas are glossy at the front.
