A three-piece suit is not only necessary for every man to have… its perfection. Most men are sadly mistaken that this type of suit is only to be worn at formal events like the President’s ball or at a wedding. Only if his mother dresses him should he think that way. A three-piece is ok to wear whenever a suit is appropriate. It will always add to him and will make him look sharp. Don’t forget, life’s too short to wear everyday clothing and blend in, so have him dress up a little more here and there.

You don’t need him in a three piece all the time either. When a man dresses casual but adds something to make it more distinctive, it is, to say the least, impressive. One example of this is the classic v-neck with a blazer.  First off, v-necks are a must have in every man’s wardrobe; they’ll never go out of style, are cost efficient and actually have the effect of making women secretly drool. Say it’s your best friend’s birthday. You’re in a hot pink bandage dress and he’s standing there clueless looking at his closet with just his True Religions on. Push him aside, grab that black v-neck, point at one of his nice suit jackets, and say let’s go; simple yet fashionable. Wearing a V-neck with a blazer replaces the redundant collard shirt and tie look and replaces it with… Sexy! For best results, add loafers.

A well-fitted suit makes a statement – a bold one infact. He looks groomed, confident, and fashionable without even trying. A contemporary suit is a work of art. To look crisp and clean-cut, the fit has to be on point. Make sure his jacket is not loose; it should be fitted at the chest and fitted at the waist to give a nice V-shape, which will make his shoulders look broader. The jacket should never fall too long past his waist and make sure to tell him to only close the top button, never the bottom. No need to spend thousands of dollars to get a custom tailored suit, have him try on different styles and fits to make sure he has the best one suited to his body type. It’ll make all the difference.

Oh, and lastly, get him a few Paul Smith (or similarly colorful) socks. With a classic suit the contrasting socks will add an extra touch of color that is very pleasing to the eye. Remember, the suit is the basic building block of looking good. This is just the groundwork, it’s now up to you to polish your beau and perfect the small details to enhance his style. Good luck!
