Is it a big no-no to wear a double breasted suit for a job interview unless you are interviewing for the head honcho position?

Contact AE and ask.

 Yup.

 

@Kevin24

 

That said, recrafting isn't a warranty--it's a service you pay for. As such I expect you wont have any issue.

 

B Nelson is another option. They do fantastic work and prices are about the same as factory recrafting.

My bad- just realized I'm in classic men's wear. Will take my business elsewhere.

As a general rule.

You're trying to work for the company, not take it over.

Looking to buy a navy suit that I can wear to interviews and other special occasions. Considering either suit supply or jcrew or maybe banana republic. Im leaning towards suit supply as I tried on their suits and like the fit and style. But wondering if anyone has any opinions as to which would be best in terms of quality. thanks

Not banana republic

Blue Line / Purple Line SuitSupply and mainline J. Crew Ludlow are competitors; both are above J. Crew Factory Thompson.

Thanks,

Eric

We're getting a lot of snow this week and it will be cold by New York standards. Personally don't think you will be warm enough in the rain coat. Would go with the car coat, but there is going to be quite a bit of snow here this week, so if the weather were not a factor that would be my choice.

I'm looking for an interview suit for the summer.  What material should I look for so I know it's a lighter weight summer friendly fabric if I'm buying it online?

Agreed. The weather forecast is calling for a "potentially historic blizzard". Bring heavy socks, some serious boots. Layers to wear under the car coat and the usual assortment of outerwear accesories (hat, gloves, scarf)

Linen, Cotton, Tropical Wool or a blend of any of those.

@BrooksLauren77

 

While I agree that all of the above would be comfortable for the weather, some of these fabrics are very casual and may not pass muster as "interview suit", unless you are looking at a creative field (advertising, design, film production, television, tech). A little more information re: the field of business would be helpful in giving the best advice.
