idun Posted May 21, 2019 Share Posted May 21, 2019 There is an article on the main part of this board about what one should know before moving to France.One part of it said that one should dress formally when going to the notaires for the signing.I remember well us going, we were 'tidy' not in our best clothes though, and our notaire in a well respected 'cabinet' in the centre of a big french city was a scruffy oik.... yes, all those years ago and he looked like he had just tipped out of bed. Hair all over, tee shirt, jeans and baskets.So how was it when you all signed. Did you imagine it would be a 'formal' occasion??? And was it????And a footnote, I once accompanied someone I knew for a court visit, and below all the robes, rather a lot of the avocats were wearing baskets and jeans. Obvious as they walked along... as the white of their shoes were showing, as were their jeans. So once derobed, they would probably be rather 'casual' to say the least.
