The versatility of the three-piece suit

Share This


When you think of the three-piece suit, you think of Al Pacino in The Godfather II. You think of high-powered attorneys and CEOs. Nothing is quite as commanding as the three-piece– nor as versatile. A great three-piece will command both respect in the workplace and admiring glances at a post-work dinner.
The new styles have a soft feel and a modern, youthful construction. At the office, a navy suit is dark enough to appear professional and a touch lighter than the funereal black.

It’s a perfect contrast for monochrome shirts as well as windowpane, checks or pinstripes, and has a padded but easier shoulder, and lining in the sleeves. When cut from a luxurious fabric like a silk-cashmere blend, it feels weightless.

Take off the jacket and tie, loosen your cuffs, and you’ll go from a business lunch at the Four Seasons to a boys’ night at the bar.

It’s a favourite with the celebrities too: while Justin Timberlake wears it with sneakers, actor Jake Gyllenhaal promoted his film Prince Of Persia And The Sands Of Time on Letterman in a three-piece charcoal suit and a pale blue dress shirt.
