I posted a couple weeks ago about what suit to wear for a job interview in entertainment. I never thought of not wearing one and maybe a blazer and chinos/trousers instead. I’m interviewing for a manager position in marketing and maybe even in production.

What are your thoughts?

Depends what you mean by entertainment. I've done a few pitches before EPs and studio exec's for mobile integration, and when I was wearing a linen sport coat with no tie I was way more dressed up than them.

Unless you are a known commodity, you wear a suit!

I would always err on the side of overdressing for an interview. I can't imagine it being perceived negatively vs. being underdressed if the interviewers are expecting something different.
