I know, totally conflicting advice...just like what I got before I asked on here. I think im just going to go with suit with no tie. I think thats pretty middle of the way but lean more towards respect just in case.

I COMPLETELY disagree. You do NOT want to out-dress the person who is interviewing you. If you are DEAD SET on wearing a damn suit to an interview [unless this is for an exec position, in which case you already know what to do] wear a grey suit, not your best suit.

A nice fitting collared shirt, with a well picked tie, and a good pair of slacks are all that needed. Dress shoes of course. Maybe blazer, but remember you do not want to out dress your interviewer.

My opinion anyway, I rape interviews... metaphorically of course.

Depends on what type of business environment.

Relaxed / small company / e-commerce / chilled environment, you can be more relaxed.

Corporate / larger corporation / tiered hierarchy, dress to impress, especially if you have multiple interview rounds with the hiring manager, directors and execs. First impressions are very important, and dressing down may land you the entry position, but not a position slotted to develop the worker into a high level manager.

Being on both sides, the more professionally dressed interviewee also gave the impression that they will take more pride representing the company in higher positions. The guys who wore slacks and a button shirt would fit just fine in test engineering.

Shoot not only for the job you are applying for, but also the job you eventually want in the company. If you only want to design, dress like the designers. Shooting for a position that will move you up the corporate ladder? Make it known that you see yourself at the high level.

In the OP's situation, it looks like he can play it safe with a suit, button shirt, no tie. In a corporate environment, anything less than a full suit is not recommended.

I disagree with this. I interviewed for an IT firm, which had a very relaxed culture. I showed up in a suit and tie, and I was called out on it.

Unless you are Will Hunting and you don't know what the interview attire should be, it is probably safer to just wear a suit.
