    I''m posting from the US, but double breasted suits are normally reserved for "larger" men (and to eliminate confusion, I'll throw in the word "fatter"). David Letterman (US late-night TV comedian) wears a double breasted suit here's a picture Single breasted suits generally look better on slimmer men. The third piece (the vest) is generally pretty optional, but sometimes added to "dress up" a bit "more" The jackets also have different numbers of buttons, with two or three being pretty "standard" Oh, and don't get a white suit unless you're Mr. Suave Go with a dark color.
    Away.

    There are few occasions when a regular uni student in England would require a suit. A smart pair of trousers, and an unpretentious blazer/jacket will cover all but the most unusual situations.

    If you plan to get married or something, then you can always rent a penguin outfit for a day.

    I lived and worked in the UK for years, and never once wore a suit.

    Never worn a suit. As a student i suspect you'll have to dress in black tie (balls) more often than in a regular suit.

    OK, OK, I know I'm a girl, but this is something I learned in a silly required class where they teach you how to write resumes and do job interviews... Anyways, they said overweight men should not wear double-breasted suits because it just emphasizes your weight. Double-breasted suits are actually more flattering on slimmer guys, and I'd say anyone could wear single-breasted suits.. Also if you only get one suit, go with navy or dark grey -- black suits make you look like a mortician. (So they said.)

    I have no idea about the vest... they never mentioned vests and I don't think they're standard, at least not for job interviews.

    EDIT: I'm from the US too.
    My programs don't have bugs, they just develop random features.

    Yea, I guess it does depend on your university, i think most if not all Russel group uni's hold a few black tie balls, i don't know about the others though.

    What IS the difference in a tux and a suit? Always wondered that..

    I just graduated uni and I think I wore a suit 3 times. Once for each of the interviews for my 2 work placements and the other for my final year project presentation. Any other more formal occasions (including the interview to gain entry to the uni) got a pair of half decent trousers and a shirt or sweat-shirt. Everything else got whatever I felt like on the day. So if I was up till 3 the night before it was unshaven tracky bottoms and T-shirt, else I might manage a pair of combat trousers
