What should I wear to meet a potential employer if were meeting at a casual location?
I do insurance sales for agents and there's one who wants to hire me. I don't really know if I want the job, but he has been bugging me. We are going to meet at a restaurant for drinks to talk a little bit about it so I'm not sure what to wear.(I'm a male by the way) It's not an interview it's just pretty much him convincing me why I should work for him. So what would be a good way to dress for this type of event?

Always dress your best. Sounds dumb and obvious.. I know. I just had an interview for a Warehouse position and I was ragged on for wearing a collared, flannel shirt, khakis and tennis shoes. Always dress to impress... No matter what the job is.

If it's not a formal interview, I would dress business casual.

jeans, casual but clean shoes (eg a nice pair of converse, vans or similar), a shirt and a nice but comfortable jacket. if you want you can wear a tie if it is your style but keep the top button of the shirt undone.

Wear what ever is appropriate for the job, regardless of where the interview takes place.

decent fitted jeans, decent boots (not fancy), button down shirt with white tee underneath.

Halfway between the suit and tie you would wear actually doing the job, and the jeans and t shirt you'd be wearing anyway. Definitely a jacket.
