    It was my way of trying to avoid coming off cocky.

    I wanted to share my personal style of how I like to dress, but I wanted him to be aware that what I say could be completely wrong compared to the vast majority of others on here.

    I spent some time in Milan last year and was surprised by the number of black suits, white shirts, dark ties and black shoes. Lots of these guys worked in and around the city center. Most of them looked pretty good. Especially with an updated trim cut.

    If you are interviewing for jobs in Tokyo, a black suit is all you need.

    Wow, thanks for your input guys!

    I actually just went out and exchanged suits since the other one was gifted to me a month or so ago. I went for a dark navy suit, and I'm really happy with the fit of it. I purchased two shirts, a light blue and a light lavender (both from Calvin Klein).

    As for the shoes, I'm thinking a pair of cognac toe capped shoes with matching belt.

    I haven't figured out the tie just yet. When I get the suit back from alterations, I'll try it on with the shirt and snap a picture for you guys. I must admit, the blue does look nice, not sure why I was so hesitant before.

    I know it seems like I'm doing a 180* here; before with black suit/black shoes, now with navy suit/brown shoes, but I'm much, much happier with the look of it.

    Thanks again for everyone's input, it is much appreciated :)

    I see way more black suits at the courthouse than any other color. White or light blue shirts of course. Ties vary.

    With apologies to any elegant and dapper physicians who are participants in this forum, most medical doctors, when they try to "rock" the suit, do so very poorly. At least such has been my observation. I should think a black suit would not handicap a med school applicant in the least in his interviews....and I should hope the interviewers would be more concerned with factors other than whether he is wearing black, navy or charcoal!

    Should Cuff Links and Tie Clips be avoided ?
