Sorry but I have a rather odd question, I have my 1st interview for as concept artist role and i have no idea what sort of clothes to wear. Not sure wether its the full formal dress or jeans and a t shirt. By the way im in england if that makes a difference i doubt it would.
well anyway if some of you could help me out i would appreciate it
If you don't know what to wear for your first interview for a job to make a good first impression upon that employer then there is no reason to give you the answer XD
Don't wear sunglasses IN / during the interview. Shower, make sure your breath doesn't stink. Other than that... you're an artist and they expect you to be creative BUT they also expect you to be professional and reliable. IF the company has photos of their team / workplace up on their website check em' out. That should give you some insight into how they dress there.
Last comment... DON'T WEAR A SUIT!!!

Wear something nicer than jeans and a tee-shirt.
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

Thanks for the constructive comments peeps, i obviously know to make a god impression im not goin to go in torn jeans and a nasty t shirt. I was thinking along the lines of a smart pair of jeans and a smart shirt with nice clean shoes. what i intended the thread for was to clarify, i obviously was told at uni what sort of stuff to wear to interviews but i wanted the opinion of concept artists not lecturers.
Just make sure you wear somthing!

Usually, artists new to the field wear smart casual. Veteran artists generally wear whatever the hell the feel like.
We once had this 10 year games industry artist come in for an interview wearing a t-shirt that looked like he had stolen it from a bum, and a hat he look like he stole from the Crocadile Dundee store, and some slippers that my mother probably threw out last year.
