That looks like a tux jacket too. In any case, if the meet n greet is casual enough that you think jeans would be ok, a dark denim would go nicely with your taupe DBs and also the black blazer. Since style isn't impt for this situation, just go with what you've got. It doesn't sound like it's worth spending extra money for this situation as what you wear isn't going to make or break the interview. And spending your limited resources at this pt for the sake of creating outfits around a non-versatile blazer doesn't seem to make a lot of sense.

I can't believe a tuxedo jacket is being considered for a job interview ITT.

If a suit is overdressed and tweed is somehow inappropriate than consider wearing a dress shirt/slacks.

Honestly an odd jacket seems like it will appear equally overdressed in this situation where the interviews are this opposed to a suit.

Dont wear jeans.

this is what I do when i have to do something formalish but where a suit would probably be overdressing.

i don't think anyone's seriously considering that.


As for black blazers, i think velvet can look quite nice.

No one is wearing a tux jacket! I will keep my eyes peeled for something charcoal or brown. Like I said the black one was on deep discount and I could not really pass it up. Matching with it was trickier than I had anticipated. Thanks guys.

How about a navy blazer? I think it is as versatile, if not more, as a charcoal one.

i think corduroy would be more appropriate for most people

^ Or moleskin, which is a nice toned down alternative to velvet.

Navy blazers are also very versatile, though they're usually suited for a different look than a charcoal one, though this depends on the color, fabric, etc. This thread is going off on so many tangents it doesn't seem to be about black blazers anymore.

Well this thread isn't really about black blazers, it's more of a help I have an interview is this ok type of thread. OP has successfully managed to create a thread topic with divergent content.

The thread is about black blazers officially again- despite certain people's attempts to pull it other places. Question did come with a situational preamble. Sorry that bugged you so much! What matches, etc. Keep it going....not much in the past thread searches. So fabrics: corduroy and moleskin is what people are recommending for versatility.
