The Right Suit: Fabric

A quality wool is the most appropriate fabric for your interview. Wool is resilient, crease resistant, drapes well and is relatively long wearing. Wool breathes, is comfortable in a wider range of temperatures and has an elegance that cannot be duplicated.

Other Fabrics
Fabrics such as silks, linen, rayon have their place in a less formal environment where one wishes to make a fashion statement. Polyester on its own or blended with wool can be presentable but may feel like you are wearing a plastic bag. It is also likely to pill. A quality microfiber, a fine fiber woven from polyester or a polyester blend, can be woven to breathe reasonably well but does not have the elegance of wool.
