As you know, I’m all about versatile tailoring. Thinking about your suits as a collection rather than just individual pieces will ensure you’re able to get the most of them. When you think big-picture in this way, and invest in suits that complement each other, you can combine them in many ways.
Lately, I’ve been putting this idea into practice with my own wardrobe. I call it the mixed three-piece suit. Here’s one example.
If you love the idea of wearing a three-piece suit but not the formality, the mixed three-piece is a great compromise. A combination of patterns, colors and textures is a playful and less dressy take on the full-on version. Keep it casual by losing the tie and wearing an open button-down collared shirt.
Recognize the pattern and fabric of my waistcoat? It’s part of my newest three-piece suit and as I mentioned last Friday, we’ll be showcasing it a variety of ways over the next couple of weeks. The waistcoat is always my favorite part of any three-piece suit.
Got to have a great pair of chelsea boots. They literally go with anything and are the perfect footwear to anchor a look like this.
