Unless you're interviewing for a position as legal council, head of PR, or some other non-programming related field, just wear normal clothes.I don't see lawyers at places I've worked in anything more dressed up than a button- down shirt and jeans.

Any company that puts your clothing into a serious account suit or casual may not deserve you.You will feel most comfortable if you wear what you feel.If a company gave me a hard time about wearing a tie to an interview, it would really turn me off, so I like wearing a tie.
