I love three piece suits. Since I went MTO, I only buy 3 piece. I wouldn't say it is any more formal then a 2 piece. However, I think filmmakers and TV use the 3 piece as a visual metaphor for "the boss". I agree with an earlier poster, in most work places, people see the vest the way they see a pocket square -- not as a signal of higher status so much as a signal for 'a dude' I don't mind this. Where I work, people think you're well dressed if you wash you underwear.
