Love the Dover. Can't help with your fit question, but will suggest you also ask your question here as well:

i have another question though, i ve seen that the OCBDs r popular for casual wear and id like to get some for normal days at the job and to be honest with you im not sure how to identify an OCBD from other shirts. Can you pls tell me what are the most popular brands so i can know what im looking for?. regards.

OCBD is Oxford Cloth Button Down. Button down refers to the collar, whose tips actually button to the shirt. Oxford cloth is a specific type of material. Does someone want to chime in on different types of cotton? I don't think I can explain them.

Oxford cloth isn't a type of cotton, it's a type of weave

Yes; thank you for catching that mistake. @Albertoctro Oxford cloth can be made from any material that can be woven into cloth.

Just to follow up on some of the other explanations, in real basic terms, if you've ever seen a shirt that a) has buttons on the collar points, and b) is a rougher kind of sandpaper-y texture, that's an OCBD. Engineer? Perfect for day-to-day office wear.

I'd say no to the OCBD for the interview though, even with a tie. I can't tell from your picture what the details are on the dress shirt you already have, but for an interview, a plain white would be best.

Excellent expansion, and valuable advice, I think.

Will you need a suit at work? Regardless, you do need brown shoes. Get a pair pronto. You can't go to work every day in the same black shoes and same blue suit.

How old and where are you?

+1. You really need a minimum of 3 suits to ensure proper rotation (allow the fabric to air out and wrinkles to fall out, and so on) to allow the life of the suit to... well, not be extremely short lived. You really only need a pair of black shoes for interviews and formal events, but they are a necessity at some point in the shoe wardrobe, whether first or last. You also need at least two pairs of shoes to rotate (also to air out and settle back to form), although I really think three is optimal and the minimum rotation I use.

He doesn't even have a job yet, so has no idea if he even needs suits for work. He will need one for interviews though.

Oops, missed that he didn't have a job. In that case, indeed, one suit and one pair of black shoes should do him for now.
