Double Breasted suit for Interview?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Would it be appropriate to wear a navy double breasted suit to an Interview @ Bloomingdales Men's department?

Wear a normal Navy single breasted suit. DB has a love hate relationship with people.

I am one of those that love them.

Interview should be about you, not the clothes. A good well fitted SB suit, on a young buck loaded with confidence, the job will be in the bag icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

For most interviews that would certainly be the case, but that might not apply so much to an interview for a job actually selling clothes.

It could work, but if you have to ask, I'd skip it. I say this because if you had a truly kick ass DB suit you wouldn't hesitate to wear it.

If it is your only suitable suit and it is of a classic style not some modern take on DB, then probably OK. they are not terribly fashionbable but if you have no single breasted example then yes.

most people probably interview at bloomingdales in black pants, square toed shoes and some shiny stretch fit shirt

I have replied to all your post, but SF moderators has to check them before they appear on here. What is that?

You are so right, people working in there wearing square and ill fitted clothes. Speaking of which I think I have to start  a new a thread about how ill dressed are some of those sales person.

I would say it's fine to wear once you have the job but not so much for the interview. I would stick with a single breasted 2 o 3B suit noting too fancy.

Don't the sales staff at Bloomingdale's have to wear all black attire (except for shirts and ties) anyway? It is hard for me to see that an interviewer for a position in an emporium that sells some fairly high-end menswear would be put off but something so innocuous and classic as a DB suit.
