  • The fit is key. This should be obvious but a lot of guys break this rule. Make sure the jacket, waistcoat, and trouser are tailored to fit.
  • Your waistcoat should stop at your waist and should cover the belt line. It should be long enough to hide the bottom of your shirt so you won’t see any shirt fabric [even when you leave the bottom button undone]. The point where you have the last button should cover the beltline but should never go more than an inch below the belt line.

  • Your waistcoat should have a well-fitted waist, should be narrow around your mid-section and fitted but not too tight.
  • Always leave the bottom button of your three piece suit jacket [i.e. single breasted jacket] unfastened.
  • You should also leave the bottom button of your single-breasted waistcoat unfastened. This is a customary thing to do, but as every sartorially inclined gentleman knows, there are few exceptions to every menswear rule and this can be altered sometimes for the style’s sake. However, double-breasted waistcoats look better when they’re buttoned, so, evening waistcoats and double breasted waistcoats should always be fully buttoned.

  • Make sure your shirt cuffs DO NOT cover your hands. They should be narrow enough such that they rest just on the top. The jacket sleeves should show a little bit of cuff and the suit trouser should hit your shoes with no break.
  • Never go tie-less when wearing a three piece suit to the office or for other formal occasions. Make sure your tie is not sticking out from under the waistcoat.
  • You can break up the pieces. You can wear all three pieces, you can wear just the jacket and pants, or you can wear just the waistcoat and pants.

  • The waistcoat can come with a breast pocket in which you can wear a pocket square when you break up the pieces [without the jacket]. It could either be a double breasted or single breasted waistcoat with the appropriate lapel style, such that you can use a lapel pin, adding that touch of class and sophisticated elegance to the whole look.
  • Don’t wear a three piece suit with a belt, as the belt buckle is going to make the vest bulge, creating a lump under the waistcoat which doesn’t look good. Instead, your trouser should be properly tailored with the waist fitted but not too tight. They can have side adjusters to keep it secured around your waist.
