First impressions are always important, but they’re particularly crucial when interviewing for a new job. Hiring managers will obviously take the time to get to know you during the interview to decide if you are right for the job, but you can put yourself at a disadvantage if you don’t look your best. Although you certainly have more to offer than your appearance, dressing well can give you a leg up on other applicants–and there’s nothing that looks sharper than a custom shirt. Mohan’s Custom Tailors provides some important dress shirt tips to remember before your big interview.
Colors and Patterns
Men’s dress shirts are available in a wide range of colors and patterns, so which is right to wear on a first interview? You want to strike a balance between professionalism and individual expression–after all, that’s how you stand out from other applicants. However, you also want to reflect the tone and personality of the company with which you are interviewing. For example, a bold patterned dress shirt will be more appropriate for a younger, hipper office than a more conservative work environment such as a law firm.
Cut and Fit
Even if you will wear a jacket over your dress shirt, it’s important that the shirt fits properly. You don’t want the dress shirt to be too loose, but you also don’t want it to be so tight that it’s restrictive and uncomfortable. Like a tailor-made suit, you want your custom dress shirt to fit snugly to give you a confident appearance.
If want to add some personality to your outfit, try wearing a sharp tie and handsome cuff links. The tailor who makes your custom dress shirt can recommend the right accessories to set the right tone for your interview.
