Hello pit! So... here's the story. I just got an interview for an internship at a recording studio in San Francisco. So... what do I wear? I don't want to be under-dressed and look foolish, but I don't want to wear nice clothes and interview with someone in jeans and a t-shirt. HALP!

Dress nice, biatch. I personally would rather show up dressed nice to an informal interview than the other way around.

a tuxedo

i dont know, dude, if you're really not sure about what to wear, get down there early and have a look around. then, knowing what would work best, you'll no doubt have every possible combination of clothes stuffed into a bag somewhere. change like you mean business in a phone booth, and nail the interview


edit: im only mildly serious. my interviews all involve a white shirt and some 3 year old black shoes i only ever wear for kiss-ass purposes, as long as they know you aint taking it too easy, you can compensate for any wardrobe malfunctions by having a good interview.

Trouser/Chinos or smart jeans, black or grey.

Shirt, not checkered, plain or subtley striped I'd say.

Shoes. Don't have to be insanely smart, but smart enough.

Tie might be a bit much, but as long as it fits your shirt perfectly it will probably go nicely.

Suits are pretty much a must for any half decent job IMO.

EDIT: In regard to the interview

Trousers, shirt and tie is the minimum for any decent job interview. It doesn't matter what the people interviewing you are wearing, you have to look good.

Better to be overdressed than under dressed.

I personally think if it comes to underdressing vs overdressing, in this context you should definetly take the risk of overdressing

A tieless shirt that's not tucked in your black trousers.

Thanks for the tips everyone. I have been to the studio before and I've met the other interns and the person who will be interviewing me. When I went they were all wearing t-shirts and jeans, but I know I'll need to dress nicer than that lol. I was leaning on slacks and button down like most people are saying. Should I go for a tie?

I'd always rather be overdressed than underdressed..Shirt and slacks with some dress shoes and you should be fine for most non-corporate interviews.

Always dress nicely for an interview. Even for a shitty job. Always. That is Interview 101.

Yes, but how nice? I feel like a suit would be overdoing it, maybe even a tie would be too much. I'm not sure if a polo is too casual though.

Yes, a polo definitely is too casual. Trousers and shirt are the ABSOLUTE minimum for interview, and you're taking a big risk if you don't wear a tie.

At my last job it was standard practice to wear jeans & t-shirt in the office each day, but as soon as you had an interview for another posting you made sure you had a shirt & tie on for it, even though both you and the people interviewing you knew what you all wear the rest of the time.

If you want the job, make the effort to look like you want it. If you dress too casual, they will think you couldn't give a shit about it. If you dress too smart, you'll look like you're trying hard. You shouldn't need to post on a forum to figure out which of those is better.
