Do Law Professors Dress "Scruffily"?

On the Business Associations Blog, Steven Bainbridge
(UCLA) entertains us with his commentary on Erik

Uniform Uniform Code.

Jensen (Case-Western Reserve) is piqued by current
trends in law faculty attire, saying, "Law professors dress
scruffily, and we need to do something about that."
In his commentary, Bainbridge refutes Jensen's call
to fashion action, quoting Gilder Radner: "“I base most
of my fashion sense on what doesn’t itch.”
