It's easy to give script notes to a writer when he's wearing a T-shirt and dresses like a kid at summer camp. It's harder to tell a guy dressed like a hedge-fund shark that the dialogue needs to be 'quirkier'. Which is one of the reasons why Dick Wolf wears a suit. What you're wearing — or driving, or strapping on your wrist — matters, of course, in the room. In the entertainment business, we try to dress casually and comfortably. Big mistake. There's nothing casual or comfortable about show business.
