You can never be over dressed. Suit & tie shows that you are serious about the position

I did not say I dont believe in wearing a suit, and I think it is absolutely required for a professional interview in most cases. I dont own a suit, but I will if I ever need it for an interview.
OK. That makes more sense. You are forgiven.

I agree a suit is never a bad way to go however sometimes a button down, khakis and a jacket is plenty fine for many starting positions.....anything other than that suit...

I think it depends on the type of business you are applying to. Where I work now, everyone dresses extremely casual, I knew my manager already, so I just came in dressed very casually to fit in with everyone else. Got the job.
The flashy part was the chrome tuna can on your wrist - not the suit.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

^^ every ****ing job posting in the world. I hate recruiters with a passion. Only an engineer can hire another engineer.
The recruiters aren't writing the job description. They're written by the engineers.

In an interview, you are selling yourself. Thus, you are at a sales call.
If you want to be taken seriously, a suit is mandatory.
