BB TMT Zoom screen interview dress code

Have a zoom interview for a lateral with a BB next week, person interviewing me is a VP in SF.

-Suit+Tie / Jacket + No Tie / Dress button-up + vest/pullover?

-Are beards still a no-go?

I have missed the mark multiple times in the past on this, and although I always feel comfortable in a suit, I rarely actually wear one around the office (MM IB outside NYC/CHI/LA/SF)

What would you wear in the office on a normal day? Wear that. Boom, problem solved

These days usually a button up and a pullover. I will probably skip the pullover for the interview. Any comments about facial hair?

Better to be clean shaven until you can assess the culture of the office on facial hair

I'd echo, but personally would ditch tie - maybe that's just me.

calvincoolridge, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Wear a damn dress shirt...nothing more.

Nothing more weird than seeing a fully suited and tied up banker on zoom in their chit lower Eastside apartment.
