    I like #2 for the first day. For the second day I would go with #1. I really like the way day 2, #4 looks, but I don't think it's great for an interview, it looks more like something you'd wear to the Academy Awards. Good luck.

    I like it, but probably not for an interview. My vote remains green/purple.

    That would mean he gets an "A" in all his classes, wouldn't it?

    Are ALL of the suits in the background YOURS? And you are a COLLEGE student? You must be the best-dressed undergrad in America.

    Love it, really, but I think the comination of stripes might be too busy for an interview.

    Question: Don't you run the risk of being one of very few wearing a tie at all on day #1? The orangey Borrelli shirt makes enough of a splash, I think. If you're wearing a tie the first day, I really like the last (Dolce Punta) tie.

    Then again, I know too little about the interview situation, and American business culture.

    I'd go with paisley for the first (fuck it, it's springtime), and stripe for the second. That last outfit seems pretty well put together though. And is that a morning stripe used for a suit? [​IMG]

    HAHAHA


    Day 1: Maybe you *could* go tieless, but what fun would that be? The shade of orange in the Behar paisley is the best complement. I'd wear the purple Brioni in a non business environment, even fashion business. The Dolce Punta sends a very slick vibe, also probably not for interviewing.

    Day 2: The green Bizzochi is safest, pink Cosma most "correct." I'd go with Cosma first, Brioni second. I really, really like that Brioni tie.

    Yep all mine. 8 Suits in total and 2 sport jackets, 4 trousers, once we get to my ties, shoes and Shirts its a different story. Some students spend their money on beer, i'd rather buy clothes. And yes i have a mannequin in my room, i mean who doesn't?

    Personally, I really, really like the way this works, and not because I suggested it. None of the original ties do enough to match the stripe in the suit, or to be a contrast to it. Not sure if the pics distort the color at all, but that green tie looks like you've tried to come as close as you could to finding a blue (it's that sort of icy tone in the tie) to match the suit, but didn't have one. I think the green would be better with that suit if you were also wearing a light blue shirt. But on white, it is too noticable when contrasted to the suit, but is not loud enough to warrant being that noticable, if you know what I mean. The Brioni just stands out, it does so in a way I think one would see at Neimans, and it doesn't clash with anything. I also think that the most important thing regarding your tie is how you tie it, honestly. I've seen far too many people who just cant get the darn things tied perfectly, and it really, really shows. JMHO.
