2009 comebacks: The three-piece suit

Josh Smith

Some of my fellow twenty-somethings have been known to confuse the three-piece suit with the tuxedos we rented every summer for the first five years out of college but that's set to change in 2009. The Fashionising blog recently picked out the three-piece suit as one of the styles set for a comeback in 2009, offering men everywhere an undeniably classic look.

The three-piece suit can be an amazing tool in your wardrobe, and, so long as you're doing a good job at work, an excellent way to stand out and be remembered. Fashionising is quick to point out that while the three-piece suit is coming back in 2009, you shouldn't go buy up a vest in every color of the rainbow from your local tux shop. 2009 will see a return to the classic vest tailored from matching fabric rather than one that shouts contrast.

I don't don a suit every day, but when I do dust off my lapels, I make sure to put on a vest as well. There's no better way to grab an extra dose of confidence and stand out in at a crowded event. After all, the three-piece is the ultimate power suit.
