    I'm not sure if you have any experience in that sort of field, but based on my own ~5 years in law enforcement, I'm pretty confident that as long as you don't look like a peacock, no one will really care what you're wearing.

      I know this sounds boring, but I would lose the striped shirt unless it is really subtle. I can barely stand plain shirts myself, but one would go well with the whole med-grey suit, brown capped-toe shoe look, imho.

        I agree with the suggestion to lose the striped shirt, especially for an interview. Mid gray is great with a light blue solid shirt. But yes, given the field, I think you will be perfectly fine in a mid gray suit here.

I am thinking of pairing the suit with a white/grey stripped shirt and a pair of brown cap toes. I just ordered the suit as its been almost 10 years since I wore a suit and that one just doesn't fit like it used to...
          TIA

          Should be fine. Stick to a white or light blue shirt and a conservative tie.

            Thank you all for the replies. I definitely do not want to over dress it, and i especially do not want to look like a peacock. I'm hoping for well dressed subtlety. I'll give my light blue shirt a try. I have plenty of time to fine tune the outfit.

              Gold and light pink would probably also work, depending on the shirt.

                Definitely don't do either of those for a job like this. Not in this field.

                  Here is the hopsack Havana they have. Sorry I didn't see this sooner.

                    That is a pretty sweet blazer. I was this close to buying it last time i was in chicago.

                      Sorry about that. I forgot it was for a government job.

                        Heh, yeah. I have a couple of pink and lavender shirts but they definitely do not see use at work.

                          Pink is supposed to be an "optimism" color. I've read a few isolated studies on the subject. People respond positively to pink walls, clothes, paper, etc. Drunk tanks are painted light pink ostensibly to help drunk people calm down. I'm not aware of any meta-analyses or anything, but it seems right.

                          I could see it not being a good interview shirt color for a government job. I admittedly try to use this color shirt on purpose for the supposed optimism effect.

                            Optimism color? I feel more tense in a pink room. I'll allow mountbatten pink.

                              Why does SuitSupply advertise some of their jackets as having the hand pleated shoulder? What exactly does pleating the shoulder do? Does it create a higher/tighter armhole?
