The recruiter should email you a specific dress code and varies somewhat by region.

The east interviews were business formal. When I moved on and interviewed int h west coast, they said business casual. Most interviewees just dropped the tie in the west coast.

With the exception of the San Francisco office, I'd recommend wearing a suit and tie. Preferably navy or charcoal. Best to keep it conservative.

Btw there are no silly questions, just silly responses.

Good luck with the interview!

Tux? Unless it's powder blue don't bother. White Tie + kid leather gloves. If you're looking to make a lasting impression add cane and Top Hat.

So, definitely suit and tie.

This is far from a luxury watch and it’s one I rarely wear, but it’s the most sentimental. This is the watch that was given to my grandfather in 1980 after 30 years of service at his employer. He worked in a paper factory. Wearing this helps me to reflect on how far not only my family has come, but also about things I have overcome myself. I am wearing this to the interview I have shortly. Remember to always stay grateful no matter what.
