College Interview Dress DOWN tips

Men’s Interview Attire

The Suit:

  • The sleeves should taper, gradually ending just over the wrist so the shirt cuff extends about 1/2 inch beyond the jacket sleeve.
  • The pant leg bottom in the front should touch the front of the shoe and angle towards the back of the shoe to fall just above the heel.
  • Pant cuff or no cuff is a personal choice.
  • Choose dark colors, such as navy, gray or coffee beige. Suit should be solid color or subtle pinstripes.
  • The fabric should be worsted wool or gabardine, a firm hard-finish durable fabric (such as lightweight wool or rayon).
  • Suit is always first choice, but if unavailable, a navy jacket or blazer with black or navy buttons and gray or beige pants are acceptable.
    The Dress Shirt:
  • The button down collar offers a more casual look than the more formal business style of a point collar.
  • Choose a good fit, neatly pressed.
  • Best colors include white, pale blue, tan or yellow
  • Always wear an undershirt. Avoid v-neck style since the neckline may show
    The Tie:
  • Your tie should be darker than your shirt and should not extend below the belt.
  • Purchase several ties that compliment your suit to give your wardrobe versatility.
  • Wear 100% silk (or similar looking) in solid colors or small patterns.
