Was it for a banking job? Or something conservative? Small or large company? In NYC? How long ago was your last interview? Keep the context in mind.

OP, it would help if you posted a pic of your lapel. Some are subtle, while others are not. Let the forum be your judge.

heh, I'm a federal lawyer and recently had a meeting with one of the head US Trustees for my district, and she (a rather masculine looking woman) had a black suit that was HUGE on her, I mean the sleeves went down to her knuckles, the shoulders were way too wide, and the length was comical. But, despite all that she held (and indeed currently holds) a position of great power and responsibility.

That's because if anybody stopped her from being promoted for dressing poorly they would be sued for descrimination. You should know this!

Discrimination would be hard to prove; you should know that. What's her protected class? "Those who are fashionably challenged?"

I thought chicks who dressed well in the US were fired for being too sexy?

I'd open a bank just to hire her.
