A friend of mine texted me yesterday and I really had no idea about the answer to his question. Basically he currently works in a very casual office (button down, dress pants) and he caries a very casual canvas bag to and fro work. He is interviewing soon for a new job in a different company that is likely a bit more formal. Can he cary his stuff in the casual bag and show up to an interview in a formal suit? I say yes, unless it was a top 5 law firm or something. What are some of your thoughts?
Well, just like a notepad, pens, resumes, iPad, whatever. I know the bag he is talking about, and while it isn't a tote, it is very casual. It is also like this olive green color (in fact it is made from vintage military cloth or something.) It has brown leather trim and handle and such.
