 Cool thread. Thanks for the link. Today we are demoing the wall between our kitchen and den. I wanted to do it myself, but my wife says I dont have the time, so we contracted it out. I has a sad.
 I don't take a candidate seriously who doesn't take the interviewing process seriously. A lot of time and money is invested in seeking tenure track faculty, and those who show up like they are going to the movies might as well have spent that time actually going to the movies as far as I'm concerned. I don't care if a candidate can dress well, I care that they care enough about it to present their best selves. I treat resumes the same way. A coffee-stained, hastily...
 We are seeking faculty in two different areas and have one offer out in one area and the final round of candidates for the other area coming in this week.

 I was going to say something about your capacity for analysis, synthesis, and self-reflection attest your graduate school training and cannot be generalized to the population, but then realized, who cares? Even those who are told (repeatedly) what is wrong with their outfits continue to post shite. 
^agreed. Certainly prefer light grey to charcoal or navy. Much more versatile.
