I looked the same as my attorney: rather casual gray suit and non-flashy tie. You want to make a good impression, come over as well groomed and educated person who will "fit" right in, yet not to a point where you show off your custom-tailored Versace suit and Patek Philippe watch.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

The office we went to the IO was "business casual" She had a blazer on...

Nik didn't wear a tie, but he did have a collared shirt and slacks on. I wore trousers and a nice sweater (straight from work).

My advice: Dress as nicely as you can without being uncomfortable - the last thing you need is to be nervous AND uncomfortable.
