Choose a navy or gray suit

Today many companies dress code calls for business casual for men. We still believe you should go with a classic gray or blue suit and only go with bolder colors if you are interviewing for a creative position.

Season Appropriate

Make sure the suit is appropriate for the season (no wool in the heat of summer, or linen in freezing temperatures) and that it is properly pressed – it should look neat and clean!

Keep it simple

Avoid any fancy detailing on your shirt – choose a white shirt made with 100% cotton without any distracting pattern.

Add a hint of color

Opt for stripes or solids in your tie selection – nothing too busy. Go for red if you’re feeling bold and powerful, or blue if you want to give the impression of sophistication and persistence.

The Icing on the cake

The final step for a successful interview outfit for men is the shoe. This is the best place to let your style shine. A few of our favorites are our the Shallon, Dickens, and Desmond.
