interview suit color

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
What are the appropriate colors for an interview suit? Would a black suit with a subtle white pinstripe be acceptable?
Thanks

Only if you are interviewing for the mob. Check the archives by searching for "interview." There are a few hundred threads on the topic of interviews, I think.

Short answer: charcoal, navy.

Yes, one of the most common threads in my short time here.

To save you a search : charcoal or navy are the answers, especially for conservative businesses.

For the more arty creative fields you might get away with it.

A search will really help you see the discussions.

Get something that will be useful for years. Moderately dark grey (charcoal)l, with a self pattern in herringbone would be great. If you choose something with a stripe, be easy on the color differences.

Navy definitely. And I'd go for a warmer grey than charcoal.

Solid gray, any shade from medium to charcoal. Navy second, if you don't have gray. Patterns only if you have no solids.

yea, that looks about right - I was thinking maybe some gold pinstripes though, to really set it off
