As Laner said earlier in this thread, when you wear a suit it needs to look like you're choosing to wear a suit instead of being forced to. To show that, you need to make it look better than most of the chumps out there wearing suits to weddings. The most important thing is fit. It should fit you like a glove- high and tight arm holes, a V-shape on the jacket, and thin, tapered pants.

Always wear a pocket square with your suit. Always. Nothing makes it look more like you're owning the suit than sporting the pocket square. The easiest way is a solid white square. Since you're wearing a solid charcoal suit, then a patterned pocket square is easier to pull off. Choose one that has one color similar to your shirt. If you wear a patterned shirt, then wear a solid tie that matches one of the colors in the shirt, then a patterned or solid pocket square.

A three-piece suit looks better than a two-piece suit if it's fitted to you well. It needs to look like it was made for you. An advantage of a 3-piece suit is that when you take off the jacket, you still look sleek because the vest keeps your shirt from ballooning out on the sides.

RE: Let's talk about style, and your looks to bang girls!
^^ Agreed OTR. And thanks for the good advice C-note, spot on.

I ended up getting the one I mentioned, I got the suit tailored custom to me. Its charcoal with a herringbone pattern.

Raised the sleeves, took in the midsection, got the pants taken down to a perfect taper. The entire getup fits like a damn condom now.

Got two shirts, a purple/white striped and a checkered mint green/white.

I got a purple flannel pocket square and solid purple/black skinny tie for the first shirt. I got a black satin pocket square with a skinny black tie for the second.

On a side note, I have to say that Combat Gents fit, finish, quality and moreover customer service was nothing short of fantastic.

I used to work at a very well-known designer clothing retailer in their men's suit department and Combat Gent absolutely blows their quality out of the water at a much lower price.

Their free shipping (even on returns) and the fact that they are half-canvassed Merino Wool makes it almost a no-brainer. Unless you're going for the higher echelon of suits, they are a perfect choice for the young player on his way up.
