I love Obama's outfit, very classic, very American, though it may only be because he looks so good compared to what he's standing next to.

No, I think even if the guy on the left dressed better, Mr. Obama's outfit would still look classic. In so far as "power jeans" go, there is no such thing; jeans are purely a casual clothing item.

Happy Halloween

Ridiculous. It shows a lack of confidence to dress up for a job interview? hell no.
Would it show more confidence to wear a baseball cap?
Would it show more confidence to wear an ascot?

I would think someone showing up in jeans to an interview would be quite clueless.

Wearing an ascot would show either that you are eccentric enough to be a wizard, or completely out of touch. If you come in a suit you'll just look like some office worker drone to a dot com startup "CEO" / college student. It's all about understanding the industry in which you are interviewing. Think of the intellectual leaders / legends in this particular industry and how they dress to get an inkling about his comments.

The term "power jeans" seems a bit of an oxymoron, regardless of who is wearing them!

I hate the look of an ascot. I think they're costumey and flashy. But i do think it requires a certain degree of confidence to wear one, that's why i used it as an example. Maybe i should have used sweatpants. It would take balls to wear sweatpants to an interview.

I know, Steve Jobs wears dad jeans etc. So how does it show confidence to dress like they do? To me it shows nothing but a lack of style and a desire not to stand out from the crowd. Obviously you might not go to the interview wearing a suit, but i don't see how wearing pants rather than jeans would be a bad idea.

A good friend of mine just went to a job interview in IT wearing a sweater vest over a white shirt with rolled up cuffs, and subtly pinstriped charcoal pants. No tie. Does this show a lack of experience and confidence?

Anyone who gave this more than a minute's thought is overthinking things. This was a stupid article that doesn't merit any further consideration or analysis.
