Looking to buy a new suit.<br>
Looks like the latest style is three button jacket.. I've always bought two button or double breasted..<br>
So what do you think?<br>
I'm either going black, dark blue, or very thin pin stripe

Either leave the bottom button or bottom two buttons undone. Never button all three. Though I often why the hell they give you three buttons if you're not supposed to use them, but I reckon them's the rules.
Don't be sad, Voo. Even on a flat stomach, pleats aren't flattering. They tend to add bulk. At least....a jacket would cover it up, right?<br><br><img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><br><br><br><br>
Suits are hot. I wanna go on a hot date that requires getting dressed up.
Boys aren't good at this. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> You ask what STYLE looks best, or you pick 3 you can afford and ask of the choices.<br><br>
Style that's best depends on how the person looks.<br><br>
But again, properly fitted is the best look. If you can splurge and get one that is just tailored to you - you'll look amazing.<br><br>
Of course, guys look hot in suits anyways. (Most of 'em, anyways, the ones that don't look like they're headed to court to stand trial) I love a man in a suit!
The rule is "sometimes [top], always [middle], never [bottom]" So in fact you should always button the MIDDLE button.<br><br>
I used to sell men's clothing.<br><br>
Charcoal grey is your best bet. NOT black. Black is for funerals. Charcoal grey (with or without pinstripe) is actually the most formal suit without looking funereal.<br><br>
If you are slim, a two button is a better look. Three button tends to be less fitted. Unless you get a European cut (double vented vs single vent), which just tends to be slim.<br><br>
Buy the best quality suit you can...but $350 should be enough for a good classic suit. Esp if you hit a sale. And make sure you get it tailored well. The most important fit issue is the shoulders...pretty much everything else can be altered without too much work.<br><br>
Post pix! and PM me if you want more info!
This reminds me I'll have to buy a new suit one of these days. I swim in the suit I just bought a couple years ago or so.<br><br>
But then again, I could do a David Byrne a la Stop Making Sense and break out the old size-54 suit that I keep as a fond reminder of sorts of where I once was.
3 buttons fo sho, in whatever color or stripe-ness you like. You can get nice brands like Hugo Boss in your price range if you live near one of their outlets. Boss' fit is kind of slim; I dunno what your build is like but when I'm in shape (not currently, in other words) they look pretty sharp.
