If anything, I'd go with a nice sweater vest and a button up. You know how I love that look.  Wink

Depends on the occasion. In the world of Oil consulting the latest trend is a 3-button solid colored suit. But that is by no means a standard for cool, in fact it's probably the opposite.

The best thing you could do is hang out at an airport and watch business travelers coming off of flights from LA or NY.

Not a problem really:

3 button and 2 button is both perfectly acceptable, I'd go with 3 as long as you are slim...if you've got a...well...high stomach so to speak, go for 2, 3 will tend to make you look even bigger. Don't go for 4, that's strictly trendy stuff, looks somewhat...junior...

I personally love double-breasted suit, navy blue, strictly traditional, that's completely traditional, too.

pinstripe and solid: both perfectly ok, as long as the pinstripe is a decent one.

suit vs. sport coat: Are you kidding? I can't think of a single occasion where the question is either-or.

shirts: If you're not sure about your personal taste, stick to tradition: white or blue, solid or decent striping, NO white collar with blue shirts, as long as you're not in the position of Lee Iacocca.

Does that help?

Amen to that. A couple of accessories later, you got yourself an outfit.

My advice to you...

Find a good tailor at a reputable men's clothing store. They have many years outfitting people with suits, and they know what works on certain people and what does not.

It will cost you more, but you will look infinitely more presentable and respectable if you do. Nothing looks worse than a cheap, ill-fitting suit that is the wrong colour for the wearer.

Dick Tracy called, he wants his suit back.


I prefer the classic 3-button single breasted suit style from the 1960s with a slim lapel. There are few companies out there that still do the Mod style suits, and they charge a pretty penny for them. The vintage ones are just as expensive, so sometimes going to a thrift store in a part of town where the money is old may yield some treasures. I'd love to get a sharkskin or tonic suit one of these days. Certain types of pinstripes look good, not the Gordon Gecko or Gomez Addams pinstripes, something like a blue with red pinstripes.

If you want to look sharp in a suit, just take a look at the Rat Pack; Frankie, Dino and Sammy knew how to dress for any occassion!

Not all double breasted suits are of the Mafia style:

2 buttons, solid color or very light pinstripe, but only if it is VERY light. Preferably deep blue or dark grey.

Man... you're lucky to see oil guys in anything dressier than jeans and a button down shirt here...

Three other tenets in our office are exploration/drilling consultants and it's like casual friday every day for them. I'm private school reared... no tie just feels wrong...

Quoting Kalakaua (Thread starter):
Suit Vs Sportcoat
3-Button Vs 2-Button
Pinstripe Vs Solid

Anything with a blue shirt and a yellowish tie. It's a color combination that puts people at ease and draws attention to your face not your feet. Wear a red or blue tie any try to make eye contact. Throw in a nice sport coat and it's pleanty dressy for this day and age...
