I've never gone to any interview without wearing a tie. And I usually wear
a suit. It's not a crime to be overdressed.

And when I interviewed others for senior positions at a company in Grass
Valley, CA, I was quite shocked when candidates showed up without so much
as a sport coat and tie.

Although you're desirous of a technical writing position, you never know
when a company might want to send you out as an ambassador. In so doing,
the powers that be might want you to wear a suit. Why not demonstrate from
the get-go that you're able to represent the company in this manner?
