I'm going to attend a student union network event, and I have a chance to meet my potential employer. And the dress code is business attire (suit + tie).
I didn't bring my suit to the uni, but I did, however, bring a peak label navy wool blazer and suede semi-brogue oxfords. I was thinking about using the blazer, shoes (need to buy a tie) and khaki chinos to the event. Would that be unappropiate or would that be ok? I could switch out the khaki chinos with some very dark navy chinos, but i don't think it will look good, but it will certainly look more like a suit than navy jacket + khaki chinos.
I think I will look better than anyone at the event, because people here dress like shit, but I don't want to stand out too much... without a suit.
Edit: I'm in a little bit hurry, because I don't have a tie yet. So I am going to buy one tomorrow. Should I buy a expensive high quality tie, or a cheap low quality tie from H&M or Topman or something?
