Is this your first interview? If it is your first time going on an interview the same rules apply as if it were your tenth time. What should you wear as an interview suit? Is an interview suit different from a regular business suit?

Double Breasted Suit : A Study In Design

It has been a few years since I have worn a double breasted suit.  In the early 1990s, that ‘s the only design of suit that I wore and felt comfortable in.  Every suit I owned was a double breasted.   For many years now I have been wearing single breasted suits.  Periodically, I would come into contact with a “DB “ suit and would try it on and look in the mirror.  This would usually occur at a clothing factory or showroom where there were samples available to try.  The suit felt comfortable and has a commanding presence about it.

Single Breasted Suit : A Study In Design

As early as the 1920’s the single breasted suit has been in fashion.  Certainly, it has gone through many changes over the years in terms of fit.  Early on they were tight fitting, then around 1935 they became loose fitting and in the 1970’s became tight fitting again.  It seems at present the trend is back to slimmer fitting, single breasted suits. 

There is more than one type of style of single breasted suit, also known as the “SB “ suit.  Most of the styles have to do with how many buttons and what style of lapel is designed into the jacket.
