Correction:

Well, I made a mistake yesterday. Relying on the WSJ Law Blog’s onsite observer, I reported that General Kagan had worn a blue pants suit. I was wrong.

In fact, the Washington Post and Above the Law are now reporting that General Kagan chose a black suit with a light blue blouse with which to disgrace the Office of the Solicitor General. ATL confirmed the choice of attire with General Kagan herself but was unable to get her to confess her choice of designer.

According to the Post, the DOJ official policy still requires men to wear the morning coat but now makes the traditional attire optional for women.
