I always just wear a shirt and tie with black dress pants and black shoes. I don't even own a suit. I feel incredibly uncomfortable in them and I live in CA, so the weather would make it worse. I've been on about 5-6 interviews since I moved here, and I've only seen about 1-2 other people being interviewed wear suits. Everyone just goes in a shirt and tie.

Of course, I've never interviewed for a high level job or anything close to that. Just stuff in security and low level jobs so far.
