Interview Three Button Pinstripe Versus 4 Button Grey

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I have an  interview today. I do have two other suits which are more traditional, but I am not sure if maybe I am just counting these two suits out for no reason. 

 

First is a three button pinstripe Nautica..it is dark navy blue with stripe. For some reason it is showing as being grey in the picture when it is either a really dark grey or black almost. 

Second is a traditional grey suit, but it has 4 buttons. I know 4 button suits are not usually standard..the guy at the Mens Warehouse told me it was a good interview suit when I bought it last year...I didn't think anything of the 4 buttons until it was too late. 

 

Any assistance is appreciated..

Stay away from the 4 button. You should complain to the store that someone sold you a 4 button suit for an interview.

3 button navy pin stripe should be fine, although the consensus is that a solid navy or charcoal are best for interviews.

That being said, I've worn a navy pinstripe to a job interview (and landed the job).

4 button suit would be a good interview suit for the Kings of Comedy tour. Unless this is the case, I would not wear it.

4 buttons....shudder.

3 button of those two, but you should really look for a 2 button.

I will go with the three button. Here is a link to a suit with a similar pattern to the pinstripe. It is a pattern on a children's suit, but it is the closest I could find.. I was just a little concerned about maybe looking like a mobster...I have never worn this type of suit to an interview before..I have a grey stafford with light blue lines that I have worn in the past..I just wanted to wear something a little nicer for this one..it is a very good position.

It's the better choice. Donate or burn the 4 button.

I didn't know they still made four button jackets.  Wow.  Could be worse, it might have had five buttons.

If you're interviewing with David Stern, go with the 4 button; otherwise go with the 3.

5 or 4 button? All I mostly see are 3 or 2.

Yes.

OP: Don't wear a four-button suit jacket. I don't mean to the interview. I mean ever.
