2. Remember it's always acceptable to fasten the middle button on either a two- or three-button jacket.

Fastening the top button is optional with a three-button jacket, but under no circumstance should you fasten the bottom button with either jacket option.

8. If you can only have one suit, opt for charcoal.

Black, navy, and gray are good as well, but charcoal is more versatile when combined with different patterns and color options.

The vest should reach your waist, and cover your belt. You can either have it buttoned all the way down, or leave one button undone. In general you want the vest color and/or pattern to match your suit.

20. Seersucker suits are great for warmer weather, but should only be worn when it's hot out.

Single vent and double vent refer to the number of slits in the back of your suit. Single vent is a little more causal and is popular in America, while double vent is more traditional and is associated with British style.
