The Question Club
Would black pants, a plain colored t-shirt (white, red, blue, gray, or black), and a pin stripped business suit jacket for men be considered business casual or a suit? How about black pants, a plain colored t-shirt, and an open collared shirt (pin striped black or white/black plaid)? |
My husband has his final job interview tomorrow (yay!). We got his suit cleaned and everything, but today the company emailed him and said in bold letters "Do NOT wear a suit. We are business casual." I've googled images and I just see men in button down shirts which look absolutely ridiculous on my SO, as do tucked in shirts. It's not a problem with a jacket though. I just listed his entire wardrobe above.
I have no knowledge whatsoever with fashion!
EDIT: To help with the confusion as to why he can't wear a button down shirt.
We've actually never found a proper fitting button down shirt for him to close, which is why the few he has look hilarious and are only there to be under a suit. He's very short, but very broad and overweight. In order to get a size to fit him they generally go down to his knees! I don't remember the reasoning why (we had this issue back when we got married and he needed a shirt), but tailors couldn't fix the shirt to the extent he needed it. Too much work had to be done in the arms, shoulders, and back or something. He needed a custom shirt.
