I generally wear part of a suit that the jacket no longer fit. (Pants and vest only).

I like the vest, because it's got pockets on the inside and outside, and I've got a topit setup in it as well, so that I can handle the "can you make this disappear" request.

The pants a loose, with deep pockets, which is one drawback, because the back pocket is a little to deep to smoothly use my Real Man's Wallethttp://www.magicpatter.com/modules.php?name=Reviews&rop=showcontent&id=2 (the link is a review). The loading is a little tricky, and works best with shallow pockets, but other than that I am good to go.

I wear a white long sleeved shirt, with the sleeves rolled up, mostly because I don't want to be bothered with the "its up your sleeve" mentality.

I know there are a lot of things you can wear around your waist and on your belt for holding stuff, but they get in the way, and interfere with my elbows, making me feel unatural.

David.

I mainly wear suits with a nice dress shirt and tie. If the event is exclusive from restaurant work and more formal, sometimes a tuxedo is in need, which I would wear as well.

For restraunt work I wear something somewhat formal (not a tux) but a nice vest and shirt with slacks as well. A fancy flashy tie. You want to stick out but you don't want to be too far above your audience...relate with them instead.

Ask the restaurant what they would consider appropriate. Follow their advice but in your own style and interpretation. Personally I wear black (I know it's a cliche) Trousers, sshirt and an expensive black wool/cashmere jacket. I wear a small circled pentagram round my neck. I'm never mistaken for waiting staff but certainly stand out as SOMEONE from the restaurant. So it's a compromise between what works for you and what the venue wants. I've worked in everything from a tux to jeans and vest.

It depends on the type of restaurant. If it's a family fun type restaurant I do a simple pair of black slacks and a black short sleeved collar shirt thingie if it's a more fancy type of place I wear a nice suit.

Don't know if you know what this place is, but what should I wear if I go to the Sunshine Factory? Also do you suggest using a briefcase

Unless I am working a show in a nudist camp, I wear whatever clothes I feel comfortable in.

You NEVER EVER wear blue jeans and a tee shirt. I don't care if Blaine does it, he is not an entertainer he is a street showman. If the place is where the cusomers wear suits, YOU wear a suit. If customers are casual, you can wear dress pants, shirt and tie.

Remember that you are a professional and you are representing the profession but most importantly you are representing the restaurant that hired you.

Tami, in another post you said you are 14 years old. So I know that you are not allowed to be in bars and the curfew would keep you off the street. In short, stop telling lies we don't respect you for it nor do we believe what you say.

Now about what you wear. If you came to one of teh restaurants I work at, the G.M would throw you out for being a ragamuffin. If magi want to work in restaurants taht pay and you get tips, look like a professional!!! if it is a family type place, wear dress pants, shirt and tie. If you don't, you won't work.
