The Wall Street Journal got us thinking this morning (did we just type that aloud?) about the often discussed interview outfit - what's appropriate where, and the great continental divide between what you wear to a job interview in fashion, and what you wear everywhere else. When first looking for a job, myriad people (all of whom do not work in fashion,) asked us if we owned a suit. A suit?!, we thought? We were told it looks "professional," "sharp," "put together." But we knew in our heart of fashionista hearts that it was more like "ugly," "tragic," "geeky." There's something about a suit (and we don't even mean suits from Men's Warehouse, we're including designer threads in this), that screams, "Aren't I so precocious?" But we understand that most people don't work in fashion, and that for those people, the suit is really the only option for work. But we just have to ask all the fashionistas out there, the few who are not obligated to button a jacket every morning - would you wear a suit? And, if so, where?
