Three-Piece Suits, Back With a Vengeance? - Page 3

Younger men, stay away from three-piece suits.  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.  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

Well, I am on the cusp of young man/ old man in my mid-30s.  But I have to say, evert time I go to work in my three-piece I never fail to get at least a dozen compliments; from male and female collegues, support staff, strangers-you name it.  The one that I have been wearing to work is a solid navy, so that keeps it in the "dapper, slick, yet conservative" category without slipping into Dandyland.   I probably would not feel comfortable wearing a contrasting vest, or a loud and/ or bold pattern.  But the three-piece will most likely be my choice for days when I am doing a presentation or meeting with important clients; I swear it makes me feel more important than I actually am and makes my IQ go up 20 points.
