Ties get a huge amount of attention in the book. Thing is a lot of businesses now don't expect a tie to be worn; in most cases, I'd wear one and follow his rules if there is any doubt. I did find interesting the commentary that guys in ties seldom get arrested. This is probably true, what a nice easy way to avoid police harassment, if that is a problem for you. Actually when you consider that mug shots of guys never have them wearing ties. Is this cause or effect? Who knows, but interesting nonetheless.
Shoes get short shrift, I do think they are as important as a tie to your outfit, if not more important now, as ties are rarely worn 7 days a week at most workplaces. I would highly recommend as much consideration for your shoes, as now your customer/interviewer is going to be female, they notice shoes a lot more than men do generally. Stick with black on most suits, wear oxfords, not derbys or bluchers. If you are dressing a bit more casual these are OK.
What I do now is pull up images of the CEO of the company you are selling to or interviewing. You can see what is acceptable to the highest levels of the company, you can go a step below it in terms of breaking Malloys rules. My companies CEO wears lime green ties, pink shirts and this is verboten by Malloy's rules. I could then wear a dark green tie most likely and be OK. Keep it conservative; that's the best advice.
