What Not To Wear To An Interview

What-Not-To-Wear-To-An-Interview

Job hunters are inundated with lists of What To Wear when it comes to an interview. After having a round of interviews at Cheap Neckties, we decided to write a list of things NOT to wear to an interview. And yes, we witnessed more than one of these apparel mistakes.

1. Power Blue Suit
Awkward. Don’t opt for your novelty suits when it comes to an interview.

2. White Tank Top
Employers don’t want to see chest hair or muscles. Just your resume.

3. Denim Cutoffs
Cut. It. Out.

4. Sweatshirt
Never ever wear a sweatshirt.

5. Baseball Cap
No. No. No.

6. Swim Trunks
The only exception to this rule: Life Guards.

7. Overalls
Are your kidding?

8. Embroidered Denim Jeans
OMG.

9. Flip Flops
Your potential boss + coworker have no interest in your toes. Trust us.

10. College T-Shirts
Save your collection of college tshirts for the weekends.

11. Tuxedo
This is a job interview. Not the prom.

12. Birkenstocks
Never wear open toe shoes. And don’t try to side step this rule with socks.

13. Novelty Ties
No means No when it comes to No-velty ties.

14. Gold Chains
Leave the heavy accessories at home.

15. Sports Jersey
Job hunting is NOT a competitive sport.

16.  Headphones
Turn your ringer off, take your headphones off and turn your music off.

Ties for Rio Ammunition

Custom Logo Neckties in Blue
Recently we were contacted by Texas based Rio Ammunition to produce custom neckties for their staff inauguration. After discussing with the customer their company colors as well as their design preferences, our fabric designers went to work to draft up several suggestions, matching Rio’s requirements. Typically we like to start off with 4 options which help us get an idea on what aesthetics the customer is looking for. After that we make edits and revisions as needed until the customer is 100% satisfied with the digital design. Rio Ammunition picked the design shown above. After just 30 days the ties arrived:
