    I like your tumblr bro, cheers for the follow :)


    I hate this obsession with low trousers, at my school we get to wear suits for 6th form and so many people were short suits that literally stop at their waist, it looks crap. I blame Topman, they sell "fashionable" suits and this means that people thing that it is right nowadays to wear such short jackets that just look terrible....

    I see this thread has been revived. I've recently bought a few Polo three piece suits that all have the same fit but different styles. One's getting the pants cuffed but maybe I'll take pics when I get it.

    Here's one of them I wore:

    These people are wrong and their opinion should not be taken seriously in any discussion ever again.

    you know, to the public, they're both about as standout as the other (assuming it's not just a tv fold white linen pocket square). A big display of pocket square on a two piece or sport coat is very dandy/standout to people much like a three piece.

    Ideally, this is what it should look, but shape and build vary for every man. It just wouldn't look good on everyone.

    I think most guys are intimidated by wearing them. It's a classic that not every body type can wear.

    I already own several three piece suits and the next suit I purchase will definitely be a three piece.

    Its hard to believe that this discussion has gone on for eight pages long.

    Just got in a wild glennplaid three piece. It's a little too much pattern for a three piece.
