    So let's poll the members and see what is the current status of the vested suit.

    Every non-summer SB suit I order these days is a three piece. I think i have just under ten. I love them so much I'm thinking about doing making some of my summer orders three-piece, which would allow them to be worn for a month or so before and after the hot season or during chilly nights.

    I don't, but I have nothing against them. I just get hot already and don't really feel like more layers.

    I am hot-blooded and I think a vest would just make it worse. Plus they seem a little fogeyish

    I like them a lot, but I live in Florida. I have sixteen suits now, and unfortunately none of them are three-piece. Am always looking though....

    I have a charcoal faint rust windowpane 3pc Corneliani. My favourite suit. If I'd find more at a good price that I'd definitely buy them [​IMG]

    Wow, that sounds great. What shirt and tie do you usually wear with it?

    I have a grey herringbone 3-piece, and it is by far my favorite suit.

    For the guy who wants to appear taller, there are few better suits than one with high-rise pleated trousers and a short flat-bottomed DB vest.

    No. I do have a lot of odd vests tho. Plus some jacket and vest combos that can be worn with odd trousers.

    Forgot to mention that I also have an odd vest (unfortunately I have not had the opportunity to wear it yet).

    I have several from Isaia and Ralph Lauren Purple Label and they are among my favorites. Today I was lucky enough to see a friend's latest bespoke creation which features a sweeping shawl lapelled double breasted vest that might be the coolest single article of clothing that I've ever seen.
