    I am going back for interviews. Is this suit outdated? I do not want to spend money on a new one because people is not wearing suits. Even the persons interviewing do not wear suit, but I know I must do it for interviews

    That suit is acceptable from what I can see.
    If it fits properly you should be fine. I would
    suggest not buttoning the top button so it at
    least gives the impression of three to two roll.

    Yeah. It's ugly, but if it fits, you'll be fine. Your interviewer probably isn't a styleforum member.

    As far as the 3/2 roll goes, with those sharp lapels, unbuttoning the top button isn't going to work.

    God-dam ugly thing as has already been said but if it fits most interviewers will not notice. When you are successful, replace it.

    Is it black? :/
    Extremly ugly, but if you know a cheap-ass tailor, maybe nipping the waist in could make it more passable (though still ugly, mind you). And don't take it to a good tailor, totally not worth it. :)

    You are probably correct.

    You'll be fine but don't button the bottom button.

    It looks a lot better now that i see you wearing it. It fits quite well. I would undo the bottom button. I would also steam the sleeves to get some of the creases out.

    You'll be fine. As others have said, use only the middle button on the jacket. Also, have it buttoned only when standing. Best of luck on your interviews. Welcome to Styleforum.
