re: Suit or No Suit to Interview
You’ll be fine baw. Just switch up your shirts. Alternate between white and blue. shite you can wear a tie for one of them and boom you have three different outfits.

But in your situation I’d suggest no tie. There’s not a suit in the world that can make you look good if you’re beat red and sweaty from walking across a parking lot in this heat wave.

You should wear slacks, dress shirt, and a tie. In fact, wear the exact pants, shirt, and tie you wore to the homecoming dance your freshmen year.

Quantity & Quality

Cheap clothes and shoes for career-shaping days are no bargain.

For most everyone here the appropriate Brooks Brothers wear will suffice.

Here's the deal: Your clothes won't get you the job. But, your clothes can keep you from getting the job. You're welcome and have a blessed day.

re: Suit or No Suit to Interview
Always wear a suit to anything you can. It just looks nicer.

As far as the job interview: 100% yes. “Dress for the job you want, not for the job you have.”

Suit.

Set a standard and meet that standard every day.

Always overdress for work unless you want to stay at the bottom of the totum pole.

re: Suit or No Suit to Interview
Dress shirt and slacks, without a tie or jacket, is pretty standard these days.

I wouldn't wear a suit every day to a job unless I was making 250k+

Younger gen is pretty anti-suit. It's almost strange to see someone show up in one these days.

I interview people for well paying jobs. It's pretty rare for someone to show up in a suit. Maybe IT is an anomaly though.

Not unless I was the boss, then I’d show up in my underwear


If I had to wear a suit to work everyday I’d find a new job

I can make more money than a suit working less wearing jeans and a golf polo.

re: Suit or No Suit to Interview
I only wear suits to weddings, funerals, and nights where I want to get hammered while wearing a suit.

Times have changed. 80% of companies/interviewers don’t give a shite if you wear a suit or not for an interview

re: Suit or No Suit to Interview
It does. I’ll never understand how anyone that calls himself a man, can show up to a wedding, funeral, church or court in anything other than a suit. I’m a millennial but I was raised that you dress up out of respect for your host(s).

re: Suit or No Suit to Interview
You don’t think it’s strange to wear a suit “anytime you can”?

Do you go grab beers with your friends in a suit? Wear one to church? Casual parties?
