Like a Boss
Three bold interview looks for the job you want.
Congratulations! You’ve bypassed the resumes HR reserves for kindling and scored that initial interview. A fine fellow such as yourself shouldn’t have to worry about tedious things such as “qualifications” or “background” but rather the unspoken gauntlet known as the first impression.
Like everything, there is a time and place for certain outfits and an interview is no exception — you have to appropriately dress for the title you’re vying for. For example…
When striving for the corporate sector we suggest the unanimously accepted solid grey or navy two-button suit with a white-button down, solid or repp stripe tie, matching shoes and belt flourished with a pocket square. This will allow the interviewer to focus on your sparkling personality rather than a frat-tastic bow tie or pink-on-pink country club cocktail hour ensemble.
After the interview feel free to loosen the tie, rustle your hair, remove the jacket and proceed to the nearest bar for the ubiquitous “gin-ing and winning” look.
This is for you right-brained folk who need to authentically show creativity through personal style while still looking like you’re prepared to show up to work before noon.
A full-on suit may be too much, so split it up and pair a double-breasted suit jacket with more casual cotton trousers. Toss on the requisite button-down, tie, matching belt and shoes and finish it off with a pocket square. Feel free to play a little with your look and cuff your trousers. And don’t forget a handsome leather briefcase for your portfolio or iPad.
Go forth young Photoshop magician, and prove to the rest of your Poison cover band what you’re made of.
Your Tumblr pipe dream has come to fruition, and you have the chance to accompany a menswear blogger to Pitti for fashion week and bask in his meticulously disheveled glory.
Since appearance is everything go full throttle. Camouflage button-down? Check. Multiple layers and designer string bracelets? Check. Single breasted denim blazer wrinkled to perfection? Check.
Cuff those skinny pants as far as they’ll go to show off the newest, most aggressive sneakers of the time. Throw in a pair of carefully folded (and expertly placed just so) sunglasses alongside your pocket square and learn to juggle multiple Apple products at one time while still sporting an old school camera for effect.
Start perfecting your blasé “Sartorialist who?” expression because your future is looking as bright as the ‘rise’ Instagram filter.
