+1 to this, I rarely (if ever) wear anything but braces these days. Nothing beats the comfort and it looks just so much better because the trousers are hanging from your shoulders, and not from your waist.
Yeah, it's just you.....
If you are talking about @tchoy's trousers I most certainly do not agree. There is already all the taper needed in those to match the top block, with waistcoat and jacket. Any narrower would just look odd to me.As for the D-word, I'm not sure I see what you see

Another good book, which should be required reading for people here is Dana Thomas "Deluxe - how luxury lost it's lustre". Highly recommended.
