Which tie is most appropriate with this grey pinstripe suit & white shirt for an interview?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Have an interview coming soon and would appreciate any feedback on which tie to wear with this pinstripe suit and a white shirt. In the picture with three ties I have eliminated the middle tie as a choice. The picture with the white shirt is the shirt I plan on wearing and that is not a vest but is the same yellow tie, untied, that is in the other picture. The suit is the same one in both pictures as well. Someone else suggested the yellow one because it shows energy to an interviewer but I am concerned it might not be professional enough. I am also concerned about the tiny dark squares in the tie being navy blue while the suit as well as nothing else that I plan to wear have any navy blue.

 

Also, would very dark brown shoes/belt or black shoes/belt be more appropriate?

 

 

 

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance.

What is the interview for? Job, school, or something else? If it is for what is generally considered a "conservative" profession, pinstripes may not be the best choice for the interview. Navy solid or charcoal solid probably would be better; save the pinstripes to wear to work later.

With navy or charcoal solid, my advice would be polished black plain or captoe dress shoes. All the best with the interview! And welcome to SF!

The gold is by far the best option OF THOSE THREE.

I'd agree. Spend a little and get a quiet, navy or mostly navy tie with a matte finish.

The grey ties match but aren't the most attractive. The yellow looks wrong with a grey suit.

Good luck w/ the interview.

+1. I basically have the same interview suit but with a navy pin dot tie.

I'd go with the gold one....it looks great.

...the yellow one because the other two are butt ugly. It's the lesser of 3 evils, and it will stand out.

Likely go with gold on this one.

forget the tie. don't wear a pinstripe suit to an interview.

If it is only a tie problem, I will choose the gold one
But please next time buy some proper tie, a couple of plain ties would be much better
Also I will invest on a couple of lounge suits, get 3-4 for the starter period.

Yes, please don't wear a pinstripe to n interview. Stay with a solid suit for the interview, then if you're hired and starts working for the company slowly build yoour wardrobe, then wear the pinstripe.

Don't think people will care about the fabric pattern, any classic design will be fine.
Plus I don't think OP has the resources to buy another suit from the time being.

I think a good fit is most important.

I think the "solid navy" or "solid charcoal" only rule applies to a very small set of professions/industries, namely law firms, bankers and insurers. It is also questionable if he has the money or the time to buy a decent solid suit and get it altered.

What I would recommend, however, is to buy a new conservative tie (solid navy, solid burgundy, navy pindot, burgundy pindot), which should not overstretch the OP's wallet and be possible within reasonable time.

Concurred with this advise on tie purchase.
