I’m finally getting around to posting this look, featuring a simple and classic two-piece version of my grey plaid three-piece suit. If you remember, I dedicated a large portion of last month to showing several possible combinations of the suit, including the complete three-piece, pants and waistcoat together, jacket separate, waistcoat separate, and pants separate. It’s important to remember that even with a piece as distinctive as a plaid suit, it can still be versatile. Here’s the last in the series of six looks I’d planned for some inspiration on getting the most out of a plaid three piece suit.
Whether you are just beginning to develop your wardrobe and personal style or consider yourself a bit more seasoned, there is no going wrong wrong with a less is more approach. Simplicity always looks stylish, put together, and confident. For those with only solid suits in their closet, thinking about getting into a plaid suit might be somewhat intimidating. Keeping the rest of the look simple is a great rule of thumb and easy way to style any piece with a bold or distinctive pattern.
Remember, if and when you take the leap to get any kind of custom garment, don’t forget to add a little personal touch. A monogram on a shirt is simple and understated, but adds a whole lot of class.
