I'm even a bit younger than that guy and i get compliments for a three piece when i wear one.

I think the key with a younger guy is to not look like your mom dressed you for church.

I love three-piece suits. Makes you stand out when the jackets come off (assuming it's fitted correctly..)

I have a light blueish grey pinstripe 3 piece with horn buttons that i wear a lot...i get compliments every time i wear it...never fails. its all about feeling good in it. it could be a normal 2 button navy suit, and if you dont feel comfortable in it, it aint gonna look good.

All my suits since childhood has been 3 piece suits. I didn't wear 2 Piece till I started working. Never felt out of place even when I was in late teens and early 20s. Mostly receives compliments for them.

No restriction whatever - wear it when you feel it is right. If you have to go to a church or synagogue you can either wear it if it fits in or else if you want to make a statement.

A classic which fro a decent tailor would serve you well. Not sure about these cheap packages though.

When is 3 piece appropriate? When awake, I reckon. I've worn one almost everyday at work for the last few years, even when I'm mostly keeping to myself in the office. It goes without saying that the extra layers are appreciated on a chilly day, but I like the fact that you can lose the jacket on a hot day and keep the waistcoat, and still be a bit coordinated and dressed up.

The first suit I bought, in fact, was three piece. A horribly overpriced, dreadfully ill-fitting charcoal stripe Gucci number. At least I took something positive away from the experience! Buying any two-piece suit now would seem like I'm missing out on a vital component.

Where did you live?

Not out of place wearing a three piece suit in your teens?

Come on...

You must have been seriously bullied at school...

I'm surprised you didn't finish doing a Columbine.

He didn't feel out of place when he had to wear a suit, for weddings, bar-mitzvahs and all, I guess.

3 piece suit is a power suit. Wear it when you want to dominate the meeting.

I wear a three piece anytime the mood calls for it. You may get some stares from people who think that you shouldn't be so "dressed up", but it's all up to you. If you can pull it off, then more power to you.
