Another one that's not technically a 3 piece that I like very much:

Wearing a vest and jacket is not the same as a three piece though I would never wear a three piece without a tie. I would get rid of at least 1 piece for tie-less. Be it Pants, Jacket, or Vest.

Watch 'The Mentalist' for a good example of this. Usually his waistcoats are slightly contrasting to the coat and trousers but he does often wear matching ones too.

Huge fan of the three-piece but would never wear it to work without a tie. I feel too much like an extra from the Godfather (parts I or II).

I am going to buck the trend toward the "button-down" responses and endorse your idea of a spread.

Regarding the initial question, I think a three piece without a tie would look odd.

Curtis Stone kept wearing them on Celebrity Apprentice last year...it just seems like the guy forgot his tie.

Oh he seems like a nice enough young fellow ... decent looking too ... and even dresses okay. But ... I just don't trust people who self-promote the way he does. Moreover, what is it they say about names and faces in public places? Ah yes.

In that photo he reminds me of a twenty-something year old who is still very much learing to dress ... but is suffering a particularly bad setback.

Yes, it does look like he forgot his tie. It also appears as if he had a rough night in bed and forgot to comb his hair.

It seems to me as if he has latched onto a couple of recent fashions/fads and is trying to incorporate them all into a look that comes across as incoherent. Also it seems his shirt collar lacks moral fiber.
