    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?

    My suggestion: Gray suit, white shirt with barrel cuffs, silk tie in blue or red. Conservative, yes, but put together properly it should still show off your well-dressed side.

    Thanks Doc!

    Sorry, had to bust out some Half-Life: Opposing Force quotage. :p

    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! [​IMG]

    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!

    Grey suit, red tie, button cuff white shirt.

    At Spencer's I just wore my normal clothes obviously.
