    So this is not a retail vacancy; it's for one of their analytical positions. I noticed no one in their office wear suits, so what am I ideally supposed to wear?

    Pics would be nice...

    I'm a guy

    Just go with a collared shirt or polo shirt with slim trousers.

    You don't need a suit or a tie. But equally I'd say jeans & t-shirt are a bit too casual for an interview.

    A shirt tucked into black trousers (jeans style but not faded) is a smart but casual look, I wear that for my interviews and it makes a good impression

    If you really want to be prescriptive:
    * smart leather shoes
    * shirt tucked in, top open to first button.
    * belt to match shoes

    (By the way, NONE of this actually matters. They are looking for good coders, not fashion gurus. Apple is a very relaxed company regarding dress code.)

    PS. Here's a free tip. Don't refer to Steve as a turtle at interview...

    I know you might think lightly of me but I'm coming through with top references (one of them is a partner in a PE firm). I am pretty good at what i do! I need your validatioN!!!!!

    and When you say leather shoes, do you mean those shoes with laces that you generally wear with a suit? Also i thought i let you know I shaved by beard and stache

    The ones previously posted above are perfect. Laces are better than slip-on.

    You don't need my validation. And I don't think lightly of you at all. I really can understand it's important and a good opportunity for you.

    But focus on your skills and coding. Not so much on footwear

    Good luck!

    A good rule of thumb is always to dress for the position above the one you're applying for. It is better to be too smart than too casual.

    This is really poor advice. If the office attire is a suit, you go in a sharp suit that has been dry cleaned with an ironed shirt and well tied tie.

    My brother used to be a section manager for Sainsburys. He hiring credentials were:

    Wears a suit - automatic job unless they really botch the interview
    Wears trousers and tie - has to really shine in the interview to get the job
    Anything more informal - no chance

    For Apple, their brand is everything. By arriving in a suit, that first impression is saying you are taking them and the job they have to offer really seriously. Even if they insist you dress down for your day-to-day job, first impressions count and you generally have about 5 seconds to make that first impression. A natural smile helps too.

    Good luck to the OP!
