Hey All,

This is from an old WAYWN post:

Is the suit fabric (not the whole outfit, obviously) acceptable for an on-campus career fair? My options are this or solid black, as my navy suit is at the cleaners.

Thanks!

JD

Wear the black. Both are bad, but at least the black won't stand out.

And, some may disagree, but if you are wearing an open neck, lose the T or make sure it is not visible.

Thanks for your help. I'm actually going to wear suit with fairly conservative shirt + tie. Is plain white square with a TV fold acceptable or no?

TV fold.....wear a tie also, wasnt thinking right when i forgot about that.

Generally you want to look like you can fallow the rules of society, if the suit stands out a hair, thats ok, but TV fold the square, and certainly wear a tie.

I dont think i have to say it, but the pratt or the FIH knot!
