    I just picked up my first 3-piece. Realistically, I will not wear the vest all the time.

    The vest does allow for some nice FAT knots though since tie length isn't an issue.

    Please share your 3-piece suits, pics and related:

    It's nice to see Brooks showing three-piece suits again.

    What's so great about it is that it's a "seasonal" so if it doesn't sell out, you may see it at 346 for $500 in early 2008.

    I'll be keeping an eye on this thread.

    I just got back from visiting my parents a few weeks ago and ended up bringing back about 10 of dad's old suits. More than half of them are three piece.
    He's retired now and only wears a few of the suits he's collected over the years. Most of these were from the 70's. I'm especially liking those.

    I think you meant Teh 3-Peice Thred.

    You seem to have accidentally spelled a word correctly in the thread title.

    I have worn my newish three-piece to two social events, but have yet to wear it to the office.

    Can I ask our three most-prolific, expert dressers a question? Holdfast, TheFoxx and Soph-do you have a three-piece and if so would you wear it to the office?

    I am none of the above, and not an expert either. But I have 3-piece suits and I wear them to the office.

    Holdfast... do you have a three-piece and if so would you wear it to the office?

    Have I just been called out? [​IMG]

    I do have a 3-pc that I wear to the office... the waistcoat is double-breasted, the suit is single-breasted. I think it's much more suitable to business dress than casual wear personally.
