Dream Team! Total IQ?
Let’s just think about some guys who are particularly fond of the three-piece suit: Fred Astaire, Gay Talese, and most recently David Gandy. In the world of style, that’s about as good of company as you can get. So how do you get the most out of a three-piece suit?
- Wearing all three pieces together is a proven formula for success. A classic navy tie and white shirt has all of the James Bond appeal you could ask for.
- You can also create a whole new look by switching out your jacket in favor of a notch lapel navy sport coat. A simple switch, but the versatility makes this suit that much more appealing.
- Rather than switching out the jacket, one can use it all on its own when paired with dark trousers and a more casual shirt. CB wears his black cargos and a plaid sport shirt to create a more casual look that is ideal for fall.
Being able to mix and match like this makes a three-piece suit a perfect option for those that like to pack lightly when they travel, but still want to look great while doing so.
In our recent Style Bible, we chose the six best new designers in America. Since then, we’ve been working with the winners and Gap to bring a special collection to a mall near you. Here’s a sneak peek at what’s (literally) in store this month, starting September 27.
Mark McNairy New Amsterdam: “Gap used to be just basics: jeans, T-shirts, chinos. Camo cargos are one of my basics, and I’m doing a pair in charcoal gray wool, so now they’re, like, the new basic.”
