Interview attire for business casual?
But, I don't like what I currently have.
Eventually, I'd like to get a suit but I don't think I need it in this case.
Can someone recommend something and where? Not in the GTA although you can recommend/suggest a chain like Moore's, Tip Top Tailors, Winners, The Bay etc. etc.
If you have a GTA suggestion that you must make - then, I will take it under advisement but I'll have to go there some other time. I need these for Wednesday.
I went into a nearby/local Bay but there is no sales person anywhere. I guess that is the norm now. It might even be part of the reason why Sears went under. Their customer service went to practically zilch.
They had some wool suits that was heavily discounted but some didn't have pants - how difficult would it be to find slacks (?) to go with them? I don't need a suit for $800 or super expensive but the suit will probably be for future occasions (unless, I find a good deal in a day or two).
For now, I was thinking a dress shirt and some slacks - but, which colour? I thought maybe white or light blue shirt and grey or navy blue slacks (i.e. dress pants)? I read that you shouldn't wear a tie if you are not wearing a jacket so I was going to skip that this time. I would like to find a blazer but I think I might need a day or more to find one.
Any suggestions? Also, when/if I buy a suit (I want one so I will have it in the future and I might not need to post in fashion forums or ask sales people in stores like Moore's - what to do... :-))....j/k.... I think everyone needs a suit, eventually. Isn't it better to save up for a wool suit even if it's not $1000 - rather than get one of those fake wool or polyester/rayon type suits?
Thoughts? Plz help.... I also don't know my size....I'm not sure how to get the right fit - do you trust those guys in suit stores for accurate fitting/measurements? It's somewhere in between 42R/T and 46R. I have no idea, either, if you have to take a 'corresponding' size of pant or can just look at the suit style/brand and go with whatever size fits. I think there is usually a corresponding size that goes with the suit but I have found it often doesn't fit (me). I was trying them on a while ago when Sears was having their 'going-out-of-business' sale. Never bought anything, though.
(Also: I don't know what a 'perfect fit' is. I have read of/about it but I guess it is something that fits without any wrinkles or a case in which it fits so well, you don't need any alterations?)
The other reason to not go with suit pants right now is I don't think it could be hemmed/altered in time for Wednesday. But, like I said, I want one, eventually, anyway, so I might as well look while I am looking for something for now.
Anyway, for 'business casual' - can I pick a typical dress shirt out, slacks and I already have black dress shoes (no laces). I think I should eventually buy a pair of laced Oxfords but that's for another time.
Any suit/fashion experts that would like to help? I'd appreciate it! (Thanks in advance!!!!/TIA!)
