I noticed that at every interview I've been too, I have been the only one wearing a striped shirt and tie w/o a uniformed pattern (i.e. a design that differs throughout the tie) with my suit. Everyone else has a solid colored shirt, and a shirt with a uniform pattern - such a stripes or a small design repeated throughout the tie. Just out of curiousity, because I like my clothes and do not plan to change what I wear, why do you guys choose to wear this? Do most people consider plain solid shirts and plain conservative ties more formal? Or do you all wear them simply as a personal preference? After being the oddball at several interviews (though I'm not the kind of person to see this as a negative thing) I was wondering what you all thought.
