How to Wear a Three-Piece Suit

A three-piece suit can present the perfect way to stand out in a crowd for all of the right reasons. Think James Bond! Stylish. Sophisticated. Slick! Powerful! There are very few things that come close to how you feel when you wear a great suit which fits you perfectly. Here we share a 5 top tips on how a three piece suit is a great way for men to look professional and polished. 

1/ Why everyman should own a slim fit three piece suit.

A slim fit suit is considered one of the most popular choices when it comes to men's three-piece suits, perfect for when you need to make a good impression. The style offers a more streamlined and tailored silhouette and is designed to flatter the figure, making you appear taller and leaner. It is undoubtedly a staple piece in any man’s wardrobe that can be relied upon for when a special occasion arises, and when you need to look at your absolute best!

2/ What shoes to wear with a three piece suit.

A brown or black pair of oxford, or classic monk shoes are both great options when it comes to teaming up with a three piece suit. Perfectly complimenting the slim and tailored fit, both styles of shoe offer a modern and sleek look. For example, if you are wearing a charcoal grey suit, a good choice would be to team this with a pair of black leather shoes, which offers an elegant and sophisticated look, ideal for formal occasions.

3/ How to choose the right colour suit for special occasions.

There is no-one definitive colour that should be worn for special occasions, However, we truly believe every man should own a black, grey or navy blue three-piece suit, as they are the most versatile of colours; easy to re-style and can be also dressed down for a more casual look - think waistcoat with jeans or chinos. There’s no doubt a three piece suit is a great investment because of this reason.

4/ How to choose a pattern that complements your body type.

When it comes to wearing a patterned suit, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. The first is that the pattern should be complementary to your body type. For example, if you’re tall and thin, you may want to choose a pattern that is slimming, like a pinstripe. If you’re shorter or heavier, you may want to choose a more bold pattern, like plaid or tartan.

The second thing to keep in mind is the colour of the suit. The best way to wear a patterned suit is to stick to classic colours like black, navy, or grey. This way, you can wear a suit with a range of different shirts and ties, and it will always look sharp.

Finally, make sure that the pattern is well- proportioned. If the pattern is too big or too small, it will not look good on you. Choose a pattern that is in proportion to your body size. With these tips in mind, you can start wearing patterned suits with confidence. 

5/ Choosing the right accessories to wear with your suit.

Pocket squares are available in a myriad of different colours, prints and textures. While they can be worn during the day with formal outfits to ensure you look your finest, pocket squares truly come into their own at special occasions - particularly weddings and christenings! Pocket square etiquette is simple; choose one that matches either the colour of  your shirt collar or tie. The key here is subtlety. There shouldn't be any clashes between patterns/colours which will attract attention for the wrong reasons. If possible keep everything else plain so you don't have too much going and avoid any patterns clashing. 

With the few tips outlined throughout this blog, we hope we’ve provided a little bit of a steer to help you find that sleek and sophisticated suit and look that works perfectly for you. Remember, everyone has their own style so it's important to find something unique to you.
