I was hoping that someone could help me out here. Next month, I'm going to be attending a mining conference with my Dad. My Dad owns a small drilling and mineral exploration company and he has been attending this show for something like 25 years. Needless to say, he knows a lot of very important people in the industry and I want to make a good impression. I'm in university right now and I'm taking geology. I asked my Dad what to wear and he said that it ranges right from suits all the way down to jeans and tshirts. He estimated that about 50 - 60% will be wearing suits. My Dad will be wearing a suit (one that I helped him pick out!). I don't own a suit yet and I won't be able to buy one before the show starts. I refuse to buy a cheap suit and I don't have enough money for a nice suit at this point in time. I own a pretty nice light grey cashmere vneck and a few white dress shirts at the moment. I'll need to pick up a pair of dress pants, a new tie and some shoes. I was thinking of wearing something like this: light grey cashmere vneck white dress shirt tie - blue and grey striped dark grey dress pants brown captoes What do you guys think?
