    I have gone for two interviews with this company. This is a machine building firm of German origin. It's a Project Manager position.

    First interview:
    Charcoal SB, white shirt, blue tie, black Oxford captoes

    Second interview (salary negotiation):
    Light grey kid mohair SB, navy pindot tie, black Oxford captoes.

    I've been asked back in a week's time to discuss the finer points of the employment contract and establish a date when I can start.

    Also, in a few weeks, I was asked to meet with the Vice President for this division, who will be flying in from HQ in Germany.

    What would be an appropriate dress for next week, and when I meet with the VP? The thing is, I only have the two suits above, but can bespeak more.

    I was thinking of being suitless for the next appointment, and maybe a navy DB suit when meeting with the VP (I will have to bespeak it).

    Can I wear a suit I've already worn before?

    Yes. They will not notice.

    Agreed.

    It sounds like you've already scored the job, so I'd imagine as long as you don't wear something wildly inappropriate, you'll be just fine.

    Oh, OK. I guess I'll just wear something I've worn before.

    Have you considered Lederhosen?

    ^I agree with the above. There would be no problem in wearing one of the suits again, but wear a different shirt and tie.

    Honestly, if he wore the same dammed outfit, I doubt they'd notice [​IMG]

    This is likely true but I sat in a panel interviewing a candidate - it's his third interview - and since I'm one of the insane people who follow this forum, I DID notice that he was wearing the same suit and tie as he did at the first interview. But it's safe to say that no one else noticed, and most importantly, it had no bearing on the outcome whatsoever.

    Possibly true, but changing the tie is very easy to do, and will give a different look to the outfit. Although it may not matter, people may be less likely to notice it's the same suit if the tie is different.
