IMHO: If you have personal style, you will not get dinged for showing a bit of it. I'm not talking crazy colored shirts and ties, but if you like brogues, or monk straps, or if you want to wear a pocket square, do it. Just do it well.
If a firm dings you for what you wear- and you really enjoy what you wear and plan on wearing it- you likely do not belong there.
Once again, please review the rules for anon. You're not shielding your identity from sensitive information with this post. No one can figure out who you are because of your OCI clothes.
ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE DOES NOT MEAN A THING HERE.
If you want to wear brown shoes and a blue shirt, go ahead dude. No one is saying that straying from the norm is an auto-ding.
The point of this thread is how to dress the most conservatively so that you can be 100% sure that what you're wearing doesn't hurt you in any way. You're not helping anyone by saying LOL I GOT OFFERZ AND DIDN'T WEAR EXACTLY WHAT WAS RECOMMENDED ITT SO ITS ALL STUPID AND INACCURATE. Because this thread is accurate, and gives advice for people who are looking to be cautious and are looking to spend money on something to wear for OCI.
