Superman’s signature look? His custom made suit. When not wearing it, he blends into the crowd as just another guy. When he needs to be Superman, he whips off those dull duds and bam! A dapper looking superhero who makes the ladies swoon.
While we’re not advocating public stripping, we do want to share a trade secret: you can transform your image from just-another-suit in the crowd into corporate super hero by adding a 3-piece suit to your wardrobe. Here’s how to brand your own dapper look.
Contrary to popular belief, the 3 Piece Suit is no longer the dominion of those unhealthily obsessed with physical appearance and the pursuit of leisurely, less manly hobbies.
Instead, it is a practical, sophisticated choice for the gentleman who wishes to portray a look of understated elegance. Indeed, 3 Piece Suits are the perfect way to exude the aura that you know exactly what you're doing, at all times.

The Wall Street Journal recently posted an article about the increasing popularity of the Three Piece Suit:
"The three piece suit has been asserting itself with increasing frequency on designer runways, as well in the collections of traditionalists such as Hickey Freeman. They're now a fixture of men's fashion magazine spreads. And they're popping up more in pop culture, on celebs including Bradley Cooper and Usher, and on TV characters such as Roger Sterling of "Mad Men" and Patrick Jane (played by Simon Baker) on "The Mentalist." They're even showing up on gangsters in HBO's period show "Boardwalk Empire."... The three piece suit makes a statement, literally, of one-upmanship in the dressing-up arms race."

A 3 Piece Suit consists of a suit jacket, trousers, and vest (waistcoat) - with the vest, of course, being the distinguishing element. Most men opt for a vest made of the same outer fabric colour as the jacket and the trousers.
If you want to stand out a little more, choose a contrasting vest fabric colour or add accessories to express your individuality and flair. It all depends; do you want that "look at me" appearance or a more understated "I know what I want" presence?
Want to look like you just strutted off the fashion catwalk? Accessorise your Three Piece Suit with a pocket square, handcrafted, matching top stitching on the jacket's lapels and vest stitching, and gloves.
The vest, a simple, fairly inexpensive addition, is actually quite practical:
