you can totally add together layers like that but . . . sooooo uncomfortable difficult to move, so hard to get the layers on and off, and if the 3m fits well against the skin it will be too tight with the shorty under it. When I get wetsuits I have to take into account layers I will wear under it. you should be warm but a 6/3 is more comfortable. when layering I like putting a wool or poly liner under the wetsuit, instead of stacking two sets of neoprene more comfortable and almost as warm as 2 sets of neoprene.
try it you'll see what i'm talking about
