This isn't 1950 and you presumably aren't applying for an executive job.
You're best bet is to wear a nice ironed button down shirt with the very top button open and a nice pair of ironed slacks. Anything else would be overkill and show that you're desperate instead of confident.
If it's smaller company, a technical job or a design job, wearing a suit just looks pathetic and out of touch. If you're interviewing at a big name company, then wear a tie as well, but the suit jacket has got to go.
