OK, I have a second interview for quite a large company off of Soho tomorrow. In correspondence for my first interview, they told me
not to feel the need to get suited and booted, and that they are a casual office, so I went a bit smart casual. It was only an informal short interview.

But tomorrow I have an interview with one of the senior people of the company, and I have no idea what to wear. I don't want to go too smart, if everyone in the office is casual, and I don't want to go too casual to look like I haven't bothered.

Anyone got any ideas what I could wear for a smart casual sort of look?

I'm 22 and male if that helps :p:

Shirt and tie anyway mate. Show them you value their time of the day and that the interview actually means something.

Same scenario with me the other week for a College course I was applying for. The letter I had told me it was an informal interview but I went in with shirt, tie waistcoat and other appropriate clothing. Doesn't hurt to make an effort in my opinion.

Yeah - from what ive heard, it's better to be too smart than it is to be too casual :yep:

I probably wouldn't go in with a top hat and tailcoat but for sure, being well presented gives you a better shot at a good outcome.

Suit - no tie. however casual the office is, I bet they still dress up for meetings. Your interview is a meeting with a senior guy.

Shirt, tie, trousers and maybe a V neck jumper.
Could go without the tie if you want to be more casual.

No such thing as a casual interview unless its for collecting glasses down at your local dive.

Absolute minimum - Shirt and trousers.

I'd go with a suit. The guy who said not to dress to smart isn't the one interveiwing and tbh, if someone come to an interview I was giving not dressed smartly it would make a bad impression and first impressions matter.

Dress smart casual and if you see them all in suits just politely say sorry and say you were told to dress casually. They will most likely just laugh anything off.
