    Since the series is actually called "Suits", yay or nay on Harvey's penchant for three-piece suits?


    And for that matter, Mike's narrow lapel/skinny tie look?

    I think the costume department did a fine job. Today, expensive suits are modern day replacements for polished European medieval armor, a symbol of power and prestige. Even the tie comes from a 15th cent. Croatian military uniform. So, it makes sense that Harvey would wear high-end tailor-made traditional suits, kind of fitting his rank in the law firm, while Mike is still a foot soldier, therefore his style is more casual, off-the-rack clothes. Harvey is also always wearing dark blue, which is the color of the corporate world. Traditionally, dark blue symbolizes intelligence, stability and confidence (hence the blue police uniform). I don't mind if Harvey stays in suits throughout the show. (I doubt we'll ever see him in jeans, lol)

    It's sorta hard to image Harvey in anything but a suit. His face doesn't really call for anything else to match it.

    Okay, a point seems to have been missed. What I actually meant was yay or nay on his penchant for three-piece suits, not suits in general, as it only makes sense he would wear a suit to work, both in-universe (lawyer) and out-of-universe (ie: the fact the series is actually called "Suits").


    BTW.

    I vote Yes for 3 piece suits. As I said, it makes sense for this character to pick a high priced traditional suit (3 piece suits were a norm prior to the 1940s) as he is almost in the line with the man's man image of that era. Whenever I see Harvey all "suited up", I just want to loosen his tie and mess up his hair, LOL He really is a perfect example of a man who looks se*y in a suit.

    Absolutely yes on the three-piece-suit front, they're hot. Don't care much about Mike's skinny tie look, he's just cute in my eyes.

    Yep Ah got my eyes on the suits worn by the principal actors. Just awesome. I could watch the show alone based on the costumes.
