    Dont know if this belongs to blogs, but its kinda offtopic so whatever.

    Well, like the title says.. dressing sense -.-
    I have like 3 closet full of clothes and nothing would be really considered "smart".
    Its all funky, cool and casual stuff.

    I have a lot of formal job interviews, university meetings and other things coming up.. and I feel a little uncomfortable wearing stuff I am not used to wear.

    Back in the days, school dress was different, but after I left school.. I cant remember dressing up smart even ONCE!

    now, people from the UK, advice me as to what to buy :P. You know.. marks and spencer, or whereever else I can pick up some stuff.

    A few SETS of smart clothes is needed.
    Yep, I am dumb like that.. really confused as fuck.
    Cant afford spending too much money, but something for the start -.-

    I got a nice suit from Tk Maxx of all places. Every man should have a suit. Saying that if memory serves me correct Next do decent deals on suits as well. Are you looking for one suit or more?

    Get a suit. If you're going to wear it for job interviews, it's worth to have a splash of colour on it - an interesting tie, maybe a non-white shirt. Trust me - you look about 190% smarter, better and "manlier" in a suit. Get used to the feeling - "good" suits shouldn't make you feel stiff. Wear it in the store, look at yourself in the mirror - if you look like you're on a funeral, it's not a suit for you. Once you find one you are comfortable in, it'll start feeling like your second skin in due time.

    I use a nice Polo with some dress slacks. I've also used a dress shirt with a sweater vest over it and a tie, wearing dress slacks of course.

    Well, I have a couple of suits in my wardrobe, although I don't use them for job interviews, rather I only use them when I got to certain clubs, restaurants and parties. >.<
    Also, a pair of jeans can still make you look smart, try to wear a nice shirt, maybe a tie, a good pair of jeans and some nice shoes, oh, and a stylish overcoat, I never go to a job interview without one. =3
