I'm used to impressing people with what I wear. It sounds like 9/10ths of the people on this thread are used to Buicks and boiled goose. I'm gonna let you chill under your security blankets of overpriced suits and safe patterns. Later.
Please. You're not some sort of renegade or "cut above the rest" dresser here. I'll out-dress you every night of the week. We all "get" what you're saying and what you're trying to do. We're not scared and you're not the bringer of some sort of fashion enlightenment. We get it, and it's great for a charity fundraiser, but not a job interview. What you want to wear is incorrect
You remind me of the criminals that wear stupid shit to court like their prom dress or an all white suit. Same thought process, different flavor.

I still like the idea of keeping a little edge in my outfit, but when I get to the night before the interview and I'm laying out the next day's outfit after I've worked so hard to get there, you know damn well when push comes to shove, I'm not about to blow it by wearing a pimp suit. I guess I just got a little tender when the fashion police came down on matching plaid and paisley.
Dude, it's just not appropriate. Again, it has nothing to do with matching paisley to plaid. In fact, neither are appropriate for a job interview (and your outfit sounds terrible anyway).
Dress like a GQ model once you get the job. That's great. It's not appropriate attire for a job interview, whether or not it looks great for a photo shoot. Everyone has explained this to you, but if you insist on being a dumbass OCI gunner, knock yourself out. Go up there thinking you're the greatest thing in the world. You're only hurting yourself.

Didn't get it yet. Follow up interview today with a civil litigation boutique. First interview went very well.
