wear formal clothes. Keep it simple, solid color tie, either a blue or white dress shirt. No oxford shirts. If you want to wear a suit keep it solid also. And most important do not wear square toe shoes

walmart, mens warehouse, even a thift store should have the stuff you need. Not saying you got to spend $$$ to look the part.If you go the goodwill you can get a suit,tie,and slacks all for under maybe $30-45. Walmart sells dress shoes under $20. Then just go to a tailor and get it fitted on you. I would buy it regardless cause you never know when you might need a suit.

Yeah I catered it's cool in the beginning, simply because u are going to places otherwise wouldn't be invited to. Also another pro is u can sometimes take the food home and even bottles of wine after the event. The cons are long hours and low pay. Your job is basically creating a movie set and then break it down again. The interview shouldn't be hard all you have key is that you are very punctual and you have reliable transportation. Another thing is don't get caught up in the event, they will be a vast amounts of girls there.

Why not just wear khakis, a dress shirt and a tie? Better to be over dressed than under dressed.
