The Three Piece
A friend of mine once said "A man never looks better than when he is in a three piece suit." Personally I think the three piece suit is elegant and historically classy. The extra "piece" of this suit is the vest (or if you want to impress your friends, it is the waistcoat in British English) but this feature can add extra expense when buying your suit. There is also the chance that the three piece suit wearer can appear over dressed, but if you want to be the most professional looking man in the room the three piece might be an option for you. (Be warned: the three piece can be extra hot in warm climates!)
