    Dear Styleforum:

    I'm getting married in October and am looking to do a MTM 3-piece. I plan to use the suit for general business attire as well (both as a 2-piece and 3-piece). I'd appreciate any opinions on which of the attached fabrics you think might look best. I'm leaning toward the first or the last. I like the pattern on the middle one but worry it might look too busy with the vest.

    Many thanks.

    RH

    It is not clear even if you click on the picture? On my computer it opens a pop-up window with a much clearer version.

    Why will I not use it for business? Nothing wrong with a gray suit in my experience.

    Thanks for responding.

    If you want the most versatile one, get a solid, not a glen plaid. Whether some kind of navy or some kind of gray and which kind is best for you will depend on your personal tastes and complexion. But it's hard to go too wrong. Just don't get black.

    Hey guys, what do you think of a 3 piece, mid-night blue, pinstripe suit for a wedding suit?

    Pin-stripes are for business, I wouldn't wear them to a wedding.
