In grad school I learned that an employer is less likely to give a job to an overdressed person than an underdressed one. One who looks to chic and affluent will get less sympathy than a person who has an older, conservative, less fashionable suit. The poorly dressed fellow - as long as an effort is perceived - will get pity votes and the nicely dressed interviewee will intimidate and possibly illicit disdain from a more than likely less fashion-minded interviewer(s). Unless of course the job is related to fashion. Just something to ponder...
