Thurston makes braces from barathea, boxcloth and a jacquard that uses nylon. They only do silk by special order, with a minimum of a couple hundred pieces so it's not seen very often. Which is ok as it doesn't wear very well.
Summer shoes should be unlined, for one thing, as that wears cooler. Unlined suede wears cooler than leather, which is why desert boots are not as willy as they may appear at first glance. But loafers are the most prevalent. Avoid cordovan as the same water resistant properties that make it a good choice for rainy season limit its usefulness in hot weather. Same with boat shoes if you're not boating. They look good with sumemr clothes but they are not cool wearing.
Mine may get as much wear in two weeks in Manhattan as it does in San Francisco all year. But the DJ is still the majority dress for opera and symphony openings and NYE.
Not a thing. Best with flat silk laces though. A pair is about $30 from Cleverley in London.
I wear them outside in front and inside in the rear so as not to stress the lining of my jacket.
You'd need to have one to really appreciate it.

Franz Custom Tailors, 166 Geary, is the best in the area IMO. 415-986-2044.
