    First post here so I'm not sure whether this is the right place but if not point me in the right direction

    Anyways I figured I might as well start to invest in some formal wear since I'm going to be looking for jobs and what not soon. What really jump started my decision however is I just received a wedding invitation for a wedding that's taking place in early sept. so now I've got to decide, purchase, and get it properly tailored within 5 weeks. I've never owned one and I've also never worn a suit before so I have no ideas.

    Here's what I want to know, what type of suit should i wear and by that I mean color, pattern, design, etc.? I'm trying to look for something that I can go to formal events in but at the same time wear it to job related functions. Inform me with advice since I'm practically blind

    Everything you need to know is here:



    But basically, get a dark solid grey suit, and some black oxford shoes, and you'll be 100% appropriate for any formal function including job interviews, anywhere in the world.

    Don't worry about the wedding part. If it's black tie, no suit is going to work, and you'll need to buy or rent a tuxedo (just rent one, you don't even have a suit yet, no need to go buying a tux). If it's not black tie, then your grey suit will be perfect.
