    Kiya, I'm not a fan of the shoes, but I've always liked the look of a white striped shirt w/ jeans.

    I might get around to posting my first WAYWT pic tomorrow.

    Then who are you referring to, specifically? Jason is Get Smart aka Resident AzN aka TaT Pusher.

    How do we get "Resident AzN" status around here?

    Post a lot of WAYW pics and have been a member for numerous years.

    Also, be openly mocked for your AzNess.

    It was a PR firm - I dunno, I thought that in a field like PR/Advertising/Marketing people tend to be a little flashier. I've done my other interviews in a black pinstripe with black shoes...but given the board's hostility towards black, this was the one I posted.

    Maybe I will lose the square. Sad that something completely appropriate is looked down on for formal business attire.


    hmmmm... If I was you, I think i'd be more worried about both my head and facial hair configurations before I became to obsessed with the pocket square. At least until you land a job and a certain level of performance can be established.

    In grad school I learned that an employer is less likely to give a job to an overdressed person than an underdressed one. One who looks to chic and affluent will get less sympathy than a person who has an older, conservative, less fashionable suit. The poorly dressed fellow - as long as an effort is perceived - will get pity votes and the nicely dressed interviewee will intimidate and possibly illicit disdain from a more than likely less fashion-minded interviewer(s). Unless of course the job is related to fashion. Just something to ponder...
    IMO, not a question of "over" vs. "under" dressed, more a question of over-polished vs. under-polished. You can tell by the way someone dresses for an interview whether they are trying to impress, or trying to show off.

    Yeah exactly my sentiments. The tie-shirt-slacks-coat is enough for most interviewers. They will note if the suit is clean, pressed and no too loud. When you start throwing in pocket squares, hats, scarfs, vests, jewelry, ascots, ect. then you cross into the realm of haughtiness, which can intimidate and offend many people.

    nice fit jpgm...
    just wondering, do you consciously choose to use a lack of colour? or is it simply the pieces that have been to your liking are mainly black?

    andi i think he is also in perth australia, heh. Not often it gets cold enough for that sort of thing but it has been pretty rainy and miserable here lately.

    Yeah, it's been pretty wet down in Australia recently (IIRC, we got the more rain on the first day of June than we did for the entirity of May - what's with that?), which suits me, now the black can come out again.

    And jpgm, do you get most of your stuff from the net, or are there Australian stockists for this gear?

    yep, im down under.

    i wouldnt say i consciously choose to use a lack of colour....i have quite a bit of colour in my wardrobe, but it just so happens that a lot of my winter pieces are darker, and lend themselves better to a monochrome look.

    mushroom - a bit of both...i very rarely go shopping here in perth, and if i do its usually for basics. most of the pieces ive bought in the last few years have either been purchased online or when ive been travelling.

    +1. And the worst part is, after they ding you, you will never be forgotten. As in, "hey rememember that guy who came in with the pocket square, yoik, yoik."

    - FWIW I have worked in the finance industry as a senior relationship banker for the top 10 Tier 1 MNC, we were all very well dressed, PS, brown shoe & all!
    - I currently hold the same position, but for a global professional services firm (very conservative), & I still wear PS & brown shoes..
    - have a look at my WAYT posts in the grown up section
    - in the end, it is up to how the individual conducts them selves & whether they have the gravitas



    Funny...that's how I feel about Omega!
    - I love how you don't hold back!

    People still have to remember that the older generation remain in positions of authority to hire. It strokes their ego to hire people that remind them of themselves. People on this board should know: Fashion is something appreciated and subscribed to by very few people of this generation, let alone the older one.
