    Interviewing for a Digital Marketing Manager position at Anheuser-Busch InBev.

    The suit I'm planning to wear has slim "peak" lapels. The suit fits me perfectly, my only concern is the lapels. I asked the salesman and tailor if the suit would be appropriate for an interview and they said sure, this style lapel is coming back as a modern designer look.

    Wanted to get the thoughts of some folks here as well. Let me know. Thanks!

    It's fine. As long as it's the right color and roughly the right size, the interviewer won't care. They'll be focused on the answers you give to the questions.

    That look is fine for an interview. The sales people will say that it's ok. Most of their income is from commission.


    EDIT:

    Removed unnecessary snark.

    It's fine for an interview. Just wear it with a solid shirt and simple tie. But if you don't like /you're unsure about the peak lapels, just get another suit. You'll be wearing it on other occasions after that interview, right?

    It's not a good looking suit but it will be fine in this market.
