When I quipped that you could wear a three-piece suit whenever you damn well feel like it, I admit that I was being a bit facetious. However, knowing how to dress down a three-piece suit, can greatly increase its versatility. Here’s one way to do it, featuring one of my all-time favorites.

The vibe of any suit – two- or three-piece – depends a lot on the shirt and tie combination you choose. A denim shirt is one of the easiest ways to tone down a three-piece suit’s formality. And the addition of a playful and classic patterned tie is the perfect complement.

I’ve talked a lot about a dark brown suit being just about as classic a choice as navy or grey. Just as versatile with a little less baggage, and therefore more open to interpretation.

Apologies for the brevity of this post. I’m hitting the road tomorrow for a while and we’ve been grinding to get some quality content in the can before the trip. You may have noticed our recent How To Pack It features – blazer and dress shirt – which I will be consulting late this evening. And I’m going to have to remember to pack my mic to keep up with the podcast while I’m away.
