Since 1845, the Maison Bosc has been making the most prestigious Audience Suits for the Magistracy, the Bar, the Universities, in France and abroad, in Paris.
The wearing of court attire by the legal professions is primarily a regulatory obligation.
The dress is the oldest costume and the oldest living tradition.
“The dress is above all the most brilliant manifestation of the symbol of justice. Its entire history shows that the dress of the people of the Palace is only the reflection of the superior authority which legitimizes the magistrate or the lawyer in his office. Among the many symbols illustrating justice and giving it a ritual character (the scales, the blindfold, the sword). The dress is the only one still visually relevant.
It also specifies the role of each. For citizens attending a trial for the first time, costume plays a key role in understanding the proceedings. It also contributes significantly to the ceremonial aspect of justice, an aspect which is far from negligible in its social dimension.
The individual and his personality are thus erased in favor of his function: to be one of the actors in a court decision by using the prerogatives inherent in his role. The world of justice being part of the nobility of dress, with all the visible and distinctive signs, thus creating a real distance from the simple subject (especially on the length of the dress: the longer the dress, the higher the rank ". ").
The dress thus seems to mark a separation between two worlds, that of the profane and the “extraordinary world”, outside ordinary time. The dress helps create a feeling of belonging to a timeless justice, outside the fashions that follow one another so quickly.
But wearing the dress, which is an obligation, not an option, is linked to the oath and therefore does not only give rights but also duties. "
