At least in most of the United States, in the 21st century, conservative business attire for bankers and lawyers need not change dramatically with the seasons. A medium weight wool suit in navy or grey is about as acceptable a choice in July as it is in January. Particularly as you're talking about something to wear to interviews, I'd recommend you not worry much about whether your suit will look too hot in the summer.Once you get the job, if you want to pick up a couple...
The most obvious choice would be a white shirt. No, it's not the only acceptable choice, but if I were running late in the morning and didn't want to devote any extra seconds to choosing a shirt, I'd reach for a plain white shirt.There are situations where light blue is better than white. There are situations when white is better than light blue. There are situations where they each about equally good.With the suit and tie you mention, I'd prefer a white shirt to a light...
Contact AE and ask.
Wear a white shirt.A peacock blue blazer with tiny black dots... Lord give me strength.
Okay, I'll disagree to that one. Although I've heard others claim that the taller the cuffs (turnups), the shorter one appears. So it seems both sides have their supporters on this one.Me? I think that what makes a person appear tall or short is something near that person by which relative height may be judged. If one is 5'7" tall, but standing in a group of people who are 5'2" in height, he's going to strike onlookers as being a tall man (assuming no other overpowering...
I may have been overly hasty in my response.Yes and no.I definitely see cardigans as reflecting small business. When it comes to corporate headquarters, in urban centers, where conservative business attire is the norm (which is what I was thinking about when I wrote my response to Calculon88), not so much. It just strikes me as being too... folksy or bucolic, maybe? I readily concede that this may say more about my own biases and background than anything else, of...
In terms of conservative business attire, it's usually (not always, but usually) best to avoid overly skinny ties. However 5/6 cm isn't ridiculously narrow, so depending on your build, your suit, and your workplace, it may well be fine.As for the tie being black, no, black ties are not solely limited to "black tie" evening wear. There is substantial tradition supporting the wearing of a black silk knit or grenadine for a wide variety of purposes. (While perhaps dated...
For business, I'd stick with a crew neck or a v-neck. Not a cardigan or anything with zippers, as I consider cardigans and sweaters with zippers to be insufficiently businesslike.Oh, I suppose a sweater vest would also be okay, but preferably under a jacket.Since you say the ID badge needs to be displayed at all times, I'd say on a lanyard hanging on the outside of your sweater.Hey, I agree that maybe it's not the most sophisticated of looks, but if your employer requires...
Can they even be termed chinos, if they're made of velvet?
Neither one is inherently more versatile for everyday business casual wear than is the other.
