@YRR92 I have been meaning to say that I really liked your tie.  I am a great fan of muted paisley designs.  FWIW I like the knot too - I recall someone suggesting you brush up your technique...

I was on that path to jackets with more padding until BAM! I am done. Gotta put new hardwood floors down and buy strollers and other stuff. But yes, I definitely can benefit from more padding in the shoulders... maybe it is British styling.

I think it'd be interesting to see if it'd work better on you. I'm sure eventually you'll get a chance to try, so all this means is longer time to plan, right?

 

Perhaps I am biased, being in London, and also perhaps I am reading too much into this but I do think particularly with Asians a more dramatic look going for a subtle FU works very well to add character to what might culturally seen as lacking in personality.. Even the BnT and Armory guys who do italian and relaxed stuff have a big FU element in their styling and combinations after all. For those who want to wear CBD suits, I think that little bit of personality works well with cuts, especially as I think they can benefit your body shape and put more emphasis on your chest/shoulders.

 

Anyway, speaking of CBD, today I am dressed quite formal. What's the occasion? None needed!

@Isolation Very nice.  The waist is snug as always, but I think it looks nice here because the shoulders are also narrow. It creates a nice curve from the shoulders to the waist to the hips. Jacket sleeves could use a bit of length.

And the interviews continue.

Good luck.

 

We made an offer in our search, but won’t know until the end of the week whether it will be accepted.  If it’s not, the search will fail. 

 

The slightly longer hair works well with the beard, by the way.

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

@Isolation that fit looks great. I favor a more contoured look so this one especially resonates with me.

@SeaJen very nicely done

Seajen, do you growl at applicants while scratching your beard? If not, you should growl at applicants while scratching your beard.

So do the academics in this thread feel no compunction about being much better dressed than the job candidates? I ask this somewhat seriously. In my field (humanities), male job candidates might or might not wear a suit. And, in any case, I think I prefer showing up to interviews or job talks dressed slightly more casually than the candidate so that s/he can feel more like the center of attention.

We are seeking faculty in two different areas and have one offer out in one area and the final round of candidates for the other area coming in this week. Today's looked promising on his resume and over breakfast this morning, but I wanted to shoot myself during his presentation. We failed to find a suitable candidate for this position last year, but I really liked a couple of the earlier candidates, so fingers crossed. Good luck with yours.

I try to restrain from growling, but sometimes I can't help myself!

I don't take a candidate seriously who doesn't take the interviewing process seriously. A lot of time and money is invested in seeking tenure track faculty, and those who show up like they are going to the movies might as well have spent that time actually going to the movies as far as I'm concerned. I don't care if a candidate can dress well, I care that they care enough about it to present their best selves. I treat resumes the same way. A coffee-stained, hastily compiled CV riddled with typographical and grammatical errors will get short shrift. I suppose if a Nobel Laureate or similar applied I might overlook those issues, but generally we are hiring junior faculty with little to show but promise, so they need to show us that they take it, us, and themselves seriously.

 

As for my own dress, I will always be in coat and tie when hosting candidates, but I am most days anyway. My colleagues dress as they normally do, which ranges from jeans and sneakers to coat and tie.
