    The cardigan looks like it's made from sweater material, which wouldn't be very smart.

    Dunno really. I assume you have a coat to go with it...? I like waistcoats tbh.
    What you mean a blazer? Sadly no, I never bought the blazer to match it, bit of a fail really.

    I might take some photos as some point before next Wednesday :holmes:

    Anywho the parts of the outfit I have figured out thus far are:
    Brown ankle boots
    Grey trousers
    Brown belt
    White/cream/lightish blue shirt
    A tie (colour dependent on eventual shirt)
    Jumper/waistcoat/cardigan
    Navy trench coat

    What do you reckon I should do on the shirt front? Let's assume I go with the brown jumper. My gut is telling me the cream would go better with the jumper

    I'm not really sure. They all seem to go with brown well enough (my profile pic is brown & light blue) but white might be a safe bet for the interview if you're unsure?

    Not the colour I'm looking for :nah:

    I think I will get the second. I was going to get it originally but then I saw the cardigan and wondered if that would be better.

    Only problem is I dislike pullovers because I always look like a mong taking them off. Also a button-up can be unbuttoned if it's too hot :erm:

    Wear a jumper or a suit jacket. All three coloured shirts should go with a brown jumper and shouldn't the tie colour also be dependent on the brown jumper?

    True, I think the only thing I can do is wait til I get the jumper and then try it on with each shirt.

    If the cardigan I posted wasn't smart enough then this really isn't going to be any better :erm:
    It is fairly nice though.

    I guess, but the ties I have in mind should all go with brown equally well, so it comes down to the shirt colour I choose. Or maybe the shirt colour will be dependent on the tie. Idk :dontknow:

    Actually I've already been for an interview there and you know what I saw? Almost every single employee wore just a shirt and trousers. Very few had ties, even fewer had full on suits.

    And my life is perfectly sorted thanks, mate

    I usually decide on shirt-tie-jumper in that order.

    That doesn't mean that they didn't wear a suit at the interview stage.

    I'm just wondering if the collar of the jumper might be a bit unsuitable. :unsure: I always think grey and brown (i.e. your boots) looks nice with navy or a dark green if you didn't want to wear one the same colour as your coat.

    True, but strictly speaking this isn't a proper interview. I've already had a telephone interview which the manager said went very well, now she just wants to meet me in person, I suppose just to make sure we can work well together, so I thought that it would be appropriate to wear what I would wear if I worked there :dontknow:

    Yeah that was something I've been wondering...
    Actually I just found these:

    I'd avoid the crew-neck and the bottom v-neck. Also, I think you should spend less time thinking about the colour of your jumper. Good luck.

    Well there's not much else I can do to prepare for the meeting if that's what you mean.
    Also this is all very helpful distraction from awaiting the results of the exam I had on Wednesday :holmes:

    Anyway thank you everyone for the replies! They will come in handy if I do manage to get the placement :yep:

    I think the top one would be good. The collar is less conspicuous and it's not a cardigan (which might be a bit too casual). Nice colour too. Good luck!
