Men’s Interview Fashion Tips

Updated on January 7, 2013

Men’s interview attire has not changed over the years. In fact, the interview attire will be the same whether you are applying for an entry-level job or something more higher up. The only difference is the entry-level interviewer is not expecting you to have very expensive or high quality clothes. However, if you have more than one interview scheduled on different days you should not wear the same suit twice.

Suit Style

If you are applying for a higher level job, you will need a minimum of two suits. They should be dark sold colors, do not go for swaggering pinstripe because that is a total turn off in many individuals eyes. Plus you do not want to be too showy or dress better than the person who is interviewing you. Not to mention the interview is about showing your personality not showing off your clothes.

Avoid wearing a double-breasted suit; you should always wear a single-breasted suit to be on the safe side and you cannot go wrong with a two or three button cut; however, many men say the two buttons is in style more. Don’t forget the fabric should be appropriate and properly pressed.

Shirts, Accessories and Grooming

For your first interview, wear a white shirt that yells out business style unlike a blue or ecru shirt. Wear a white shirt that has a simple collar, such as a traditional straight point. Avoid wearing monograms or jaunty contrasting white collared shirts. Sorry, and leave your French cuffs at home too.

Also try and go with a shirt that is 100 percent cotton. The shirt should be crisp and white, so if you have a shirt that not as white as it should be leave it in your closest. If that is the case, it is best to go out and buy a new shirt.

The tie is what brings together the whole entire outfit. An all-over neat pattern, small dot, or even a classic stripe will work very well. Try and avoid anything wild, that means leave your funny ties at home, if you want to land a job.

As for jewelry, leave most of it at home it is nice to wear a watch, but you do not have to go sporting around your Rolex where one that is nice and simple and that does not cost an arm and a leg.

To complete your whole look wear some nice black lace-up shoes. Make sure you shined them before heading on out to your interview and do not forget to always wear black socks no matter what. Make sure your socks are long enough to cover your ankles.

Make sure your nails are cleaned and you combed your hair and you tie is tied correctly. Also make sure your suit is freshly pressed and you have no wrinkles in it whatsoever. Not to mention, have a pen that writes well ready to go too.
