Google employee Jason Warner offers some fashion advice on how to dress for success in Google's offices. Apparently, it starts out with the right shoes.Here is probably the most useful tip:

Don't look like you're trying too hard. It's part of our corporate culture that you don't have to dress up to be serious, but the groups I support are sales and operations, and they all dress in a business casual. They wear nice slacks or khakis, nice shoes (lots of Eccos, actually, now that I've started paying more attention) but they wear quality clothing. So I choose to dress like them and buy nice stuff. I try and invest in nice shoes and belts, and also nice quality shirts. You can get away with buying inexpensive pants -- Dockers, for example.

Here is the rest of Jason's advice. Does anyone know if these tips will help you get past the first interview with Google?
