I am afraid this all down to what assumptions the panel will make about you.

The Tribunal is in effect a Court of Law, so it would be best to wear smart clothing, however, if it is part of your claim, that you are unable to manage washing and dressing (as an example), then you should consider going in your normal everyday clothing.

In the same way, how you get to the Tribunal and even get to the room where the hearing is being held will be reviewed, so you need to consider this in respect to your claim.

You may have read it in the B&W guide to ESA Appeals. It covers lots of other aspects of how to best present yourself and your case at appeal. Essential reading!
