I'm wondering what I should wear to an interview I have later today at 1:30 PM EST for a cellular accessories store. Interview was set up just yesterday. The people there usually dress in at least a shirt and tie from what I know. So what would you do with:
-black two button suit: flat front trousers with belt loops, ventless
-grey three button suit: ticket pocket, flat front without belt loops, dual vents
-Two clean white shirts, one with narrow collar and barrel cuffs, one with medium spread and double cuff
-silk textured tie in red
-silk satin and textured stripe tie in blue/navy
-silk woven plaid tie in light blue
-cotton knit tie in light blue with one white and one black horizontal stripe
-cotton knit tie in black, khaki and red-orange in horizontal stripes.
-The only pair of dress shoes I have are black blucher cap toes, so not much to discuss here.

So basically I'm wondering whether to show my better dressed side or play it safe here. I do want to show at least somewhat that I'm a step above most of the guys who wear just some shirt, a tie that was probably given to them by their aunt, and Dockers with duckbilled Kenneth Cole monstrosities. Suggestions?

Jovan, I agree with Doc. Remember, this is just a cellular accessories store (unless of course it's a cellular accessories boutique that caters to the stars), no need to go overboard. Best of luck with the interview!

LOL. Is that the Marine one or the security guard one?

lawyerdad: It's the generic nickname applied to field medics both in real life and in the game. When the medic heals a squadmate in OpFor, he'll usually say, "Thanks, Doc!"

Interview went okay, but I think the one at Spencer's Gifts later on went better. We'll see!
