British lawyers, called barristers, are not happy that the British courts are thinking of removing the curl wig that has been part of court dress code since the 17th century. Apparently, they must all enjoy wearing the itchy, heavy, unhygenic, and smelly horse hair wig simply because of tradition. One of them even compared a barrister without a wig to a doctor without a stethoscope. I disagree. A doctor uses a stethoscope to examine his patients, but a lawyer doesn’t argue a case using the stink of his wig or the ridiculousness of his appearance.
