So let’s get started!

– A suit

A  suit is the most important thing a man should take in consideration when going to a job interview.  A proper suit can be the key of your success. Invest more money in a good suit, and you’ll feel like a lawyer from the TV show ‘Suits’.  It’s recommendable that the costume should be or navy, or dark gray. Avoid the double-breasted suits. A 2-button style is more classic.  And make sure your suit is neat before you leave the house.

– Long sleeve shirt

White is always a good choice. For you first interview, it’s better if you would wear a white shirt. Again, make sure the shirt is neat.  And no blends.

– A tie

Neat pattern, with a small dot or classic stripes, the tie is very important. Avoid the ties that are overly bright. I hope you figured out that a bow tie is out of the quoestion. You’re not going to a weeding.

– Professional hairstyle

Don’t wear a hairstyle that’s more like the ones of Taft Schwarzkopf commercials.You’ re not going to a parade.  And you’d better not use a lot of hairgel. Aslo, if you’re a beard lover, you may have to give up on that for a while.  A hairstyle like the one Brad Pitt has will do the trick.

– Accessories

Better no accessories than cheap accessories. So, if you really want to wear one, make sure you invest money in something with hight quality. Still, don’t forget you’re in a suit, so a sport watch will do you no good. Go more for the classic style.
