    Cardigans are good But not that one, it's horrible. Check out Topman or H&M.

    I still think you'll be better off with a suit. Yes employees in the office wear smart-casual (many places have fully casual on certain days of the week) but I bet you they all wore suits during their interviews and also if they have direct customer facing jobs.

    If the dress code was 'smart casual' for your interview then you might be able to get away with it (though I'd still go for a suit to be safe). Since yours is 'business dress' it would be pretty dumb not to go with a suit.

    EDIT: also this is IBM who are a very business company looking for professionalism not simply a university interview or a high street job

    The cardigan in grey is sound. I'm not a fan of the jumper.

    In my opinion, the first grey cardigan is the pick of the two you put up. You could wear both in casual and smart/casual contexts but the first one looks more current and stylish, if you ask me.

    I agree. The jumper is something I'd consider wearing post-30th birthday.

    THe grey cardigan's chest pockets look stupid. The kind of thing that's fashionable for 2 seconds then just looks ridiculous. The jumper is alright, pretty standard cut so stands the test of time, but not in that "I've given up on life" brown.

    Well I have ended up buying three jumpers (the brown/khaki jumper in the first post, and two of the Vnecks I posted in blue and dark grey), and will return the ones I don't like.

    Thanks for the replies guys!
