Want to bring your A-game to the office? The three-piece suit is your answer. Stylist Jeff Lack shows you how to take it through the work week.


A suit with a matching waistcoat is your answer to dressing like a boss. Choose pattern over plain for a strong tailored look but keep the base colour classic – a navy suit with a highlight check is a failsafe choice. For shirting, stick to a timeless white shirt with a simple peak collar to let the three-piece ensemble shine. For the finishing touch, contrast the checks with a spot tie.

Mid Week

Give the jacket a break and make your waist coat the hero. It’ll also be a lot more comfortable as you head into the work week. For a sharp but relaxed look, keep the tie on but roll up the shirt sleeves. Accessories will add to the casually polished look: smart leather lace-ups and a tie bar are our picks.


For an even more relaxed look, or to switch up your suit later in the week, remove the waistcoat and unbutton two buttons on your shirt.
