Younger men, stay away from three-piece suits. Â You already look too dapper.
Oh, my -- are you being sarcastic and I'm missing it?. I hope so. I adore my three-piece suits -- on a young man I think it is a form of rebellion (and I'm getting a new one). One, I might add, that I so thoroughly enjoy.
BTW, when seeking to avoid "stuffiness," cut and styling are important variables, but fabric trumps them both. Â Avoid the lumpy, colorless, anonymous look of "old man's" suitings.
Same as above, provided I have the same idea of 'old man's suitings' as you do, my greys and blues, though I spread it around some with dove grey and slate blue and khaki. I feel that avoiding stuffiness is all about attitude -- an approachable person with commensurate body language and mannerisms is never stuffy, even in bankers' dress. Regards, Huntsman
