Has anyone found anything good in store at the clearance event? The online stuff doesn't seem to be a good deal, as a lot of it has been sitting in the clearance section for the same price for quite some time.
On Jan 12th, I placed an order(a BBBF suit) with Standard Shipping on their website, which clearly stated "In stock and ready to ship now," though I received an email informing the order was expected to ship on 26th. Then I called them and had the order changed to Two Business Day shipping. Two business day later, I called them again and they said the items have to be shipped from their stores. If i am not waiting for a new suit with a new color for an interview, i would not be in a hurry. Does anyone know how long will it take for BB to ship items from their store? BTW, the order status has been displaying as "submitted" for days.
Specifically, what makes a properly fitted BBBF suit inappropriate for an interview?
Nothing and everything. As usual, generic advice is useless in these situations. It depends on role, level, industry, etc. If someone interviews for a senior client-facing role at my firm, they'd better be dressed in something close to CBD, because that is what our clients will expect to see. If someone interviews for a programming role, I don't really care what they're wearing as long as it can be vaguely described as "clothes".
