Making Legal Wigs for British Courts

Tradition dictates that judges and lawyers (barristers) in London appear in court wearing the kind of powdered wigs that Americans dropped more than 200 years ago. Great Big Story takes us into the tailor shop that makes those wigs. Not only do the particulars need to wear wigs, but those wigs come in different styles for different roles and occasions. At least they don't require powder anymore.
