How many pieces? Two and Three Piece Suits

17 Oct 2020

What is the difference between a two piece and a three piece suit? The obvious answer is a three piece suit comes with an extra bit!

But there is so much more to the suits than just the waistcoat, lets take a look.


2 Pieces

A two piece suit is simple, as it says in the title, its two pieces. A jacket and matching trousers. The rest is up to you.

Over the years of its life the styles have changed but the concept remains the same. Simple yet stunning when worn correctly.

Two piece suits are often worn as everyday wear, perfect for a trip into the office. However, with the right colours and tie, you can turn this from everyday wear to that special occasion suit.

Our Model Shane Crom wears the Myers Navy Suit with a black bow tie and pocket square. With its dark lapels its perfect for a prom suit.

3 Pieces

Just like it says on the tin, the three piece suit come with more. A three piece suit comes with a matching waistcoat to really pull the look together.

The major focus of a three piece suit is the waistcoat. It takes your from an everyday man to a successful business entrepreneur.

Because the waistcoat is what brings the outfit together, then you need to make sure it fits right. A waistcoat should slide down the sides of your body sleekly with no lumps, no protrusions or anything else. Your not wearing a corset. You are wearing a well tailored vest.

One this to always consider while wearing a suit, the collar. The collar defines the mans face, whether your in a dress shirt, suit jacket or vest, you always need help to define the face. We have a range of shirts for you to chose from.
