Three Styles That Help You Stand Out No. 2: The Young Man's Three-Piece A three-piece suit announces itself loudly and clearly—opt for a relatively subdued shirt-and-tie combo to provide balance. Fitwise, think about the vest. It should hit at the belt buckle (not dip past it), and it should wrap snugly around your torso. Mix it up. Ditch the jacket and stride around the office in just the vest. Or you can always leave the vest at home and wear the suit as a conventional two-piece.
