During my recent interview trail, every guy who I could tell was actually "trying" was wearing this combination. Goes for weddings as well. Most of them were also wearing some sort of gingham ties with a tie bar 4/5 times as well. Or a bowtie.
That's just the kind of wool and the maker of the wool that the suit is made out of. Honestly, I don't know much about that maker, but with Brooks Brothers, the wool your looking for is either Saxxon or Loro Piana. Those are the top of the line for them.

Found this today. Here are the 2 inside labels. Does "estrato by Trabaldo Togna" signify anything of importance?
I wouldn't call this a Randomized Control Trial with the benefit of a multi-center population approach, but between the interviews and weddings, I did log probably 30+ occasions in total.
I'd call this the "under 30" demographic. In the weddings, there were people ranging from tech to law to medicine who partook in the argyle/gingham/walnut/tiebar look. Their outfits usually garner the most attention as well.
