Fatties be meek

Heavyset men shouldn’t wear bold patterns of any sort.

Pinstripes and solid colors, especially dark ones, are your friends. Bulky fabrics such as tweeds should be avoided when it comes to suits, and softer wools such as gabardines and super 100’s should be embraced.

Finding your sleeve length measurement:

To find your sleeve measurement, relax your arm, and place your hand on your hip with your elbow at a 90-degree angle.

Start at the middle of the back of your neck, measure over your shoulder and elbow, and down your arm to your wrist bone. Or, take a shirt that fits you very well, fold at the elbow to 90 degrees, and measure from the middle back of the collar to the cuff.

Don’t make this mistake

A short-sleeve shirt, more precisely one with half sleeves, is not meant to be worn with a tie. Ties go only with full-sleeves shirts. Even better, avoid wearing short-sleeve shirts altogether, unless you want to casual look.

What color is your tie?

Even though any color tie will match to a gray suit and white dress shirt, pick a classic necktie color, such as navy blue or burgundy red.

Striped ties in blue and/or red are also great. Stay away from novelty ties, or ties with too bright of a color such as bright red, pink, orange, yellow, and so on.

Dressing for the job you want

The right attire for a job interview depends partially on the type of job, and/or the industry you are applying for.

In general, wearing a suit and tie to your job interview is a good choice: It shows respect to the employer, and it shows that you took your time to prepare.
