This is Dave. Dave writes for Brokelyn, but he is up for a gig with a big-time media company. (Go Dave! Everyone else, write for Brokelyn!) We love Dave, so we want to make sure he is interview-ready when and if, starting with the look. Thing is, his current “look” consists of a wardrobe of t-shirts, jeans, and three insurance-guy suits. (No offense, insurance guys.) What should Dave wear for his hoped-for face-to-face at a fancy digital news outlet — and where should he get it?
It’s not a newspaper, TV network or print magazine, so leave all your old-media fashion baggage behind. Suit or no suit? Jeans or no jeans? Tie or no tie? Tie with jeans, but no tie with khakis? What kind of shirt? Solid or plaid? Slayer concert tee? Are erm, sneakers OK? Sartorially speaking, we’re starting from humble beginnings here, so please help a fella out. Constructive suggestions welcome, but dump on Dave and you’re going to have to deal with Mama Brokelyn.
