3-piece suit to business meeting? - Page 6

Done it before and I'll do it again.

I can't believe all the people here who wear a suit when everyone around them is wearing business casual attire at best, and cargo shorts and a Patriots jersey at worst, and yet they're getting this self-conscious over the idea of wearing a damn vest.

I just bought one and the first thing I thought when I tried it on was that I cannot wear this to work otherwise I will look to damn good. And I know that sounds overly confident but what I mean is you don't want to necessairly blow away your co-workers and look like a fashion diva otherwise it will make you look like a d****.

It's not my problem if the rest of the world wants to dress like teenagers in the office. I wear suits and ties, three piece suits when I feel like it.

To hell with what they think about it...who could possibly care about their opinion, based on how they dress themselves in the morning?

Well were I work all the men 2 piece suits. So to wear a 3 piece may be to over the top.

Why, especially if it's a cold winter day?

If anyone's worried about taking flak at the office for putting on a vest, they should get a new job.

I agree!

It is amazing how business attire in our society has devolved over the past several decades. DAMN YOU, CASUAL FRIDAYS, DAMN YOU!

But in all seriousness, I believe 3pc suits are fine in a business setting as long as they are conservative in nature--solid gray or navy, standard pinstripe, or subtle glen plaid --and paired with a simple shirt and tie.

I mean if you can't wear a 3pc, then you shouldn't wear a DB, a pocket square, cufflinks, etc. for fear that any of those items may make you look over-the-top compared to your peers...

If everyone else is wearing a two piece, they'll never even notice you wearing a three piece.

Seriously? I can imagine it being a bit over the top if everyone else wears jeans and t-shirts, but it's really not that big a step from a 2-piece to a 3-piece. If everyone felt the same as you then nobody would ever wear a 3-piece...

This is a pretty insane POV. Everyone should care, to some degree, about how you are perceived at work. You go to work in order to earn money and advance your career, not flaunt your peacock feathers. That said, some especially charismatic guys can pull off a 3-piece or DB suit, but on the vast majority of men it looks affected and try-hard. It's not the end of the world if people at work think you are weird and eccentric - you won't get fired or suffer major adverse career consequences or anything - but why not try to fit in and exhibit your style more discreetly (through well fitting clothes, tasteful accessories, etc)

I wore 3-piece suits as a student-intern. I loove those babies.
