Knight in Shining Armor

Many lawyers and law students remember their first days of law school, when they dreamt of justice and worthy causes -- only to find that most of their studies were about rules and regulations.  Some attorneys, however, steadfastly pursue their missions and are recognized accordingly.  Alain Coblence is one of these legal luminaries.  

The newly dubbed Sir Alain, if I may mix traditions and honorifics, was recently named a Chevalier of the French Legion of Honor.  He has been a consultant to the Council of Fashion Designers of America, the Federation Francaise de la Couture, and the Camera Nationale della Moda Italiana, and he practices in both New York and Paris.  All of this leaves one small dilemma, however:  metallics are "in" for Spring, yes, but where does one actually find a suit of shining armor these days?
