How often do you wear them?
post #2 of 28
Every day for work and always with a suit (and tux of course). Also once in a while with an odd caot and trousers, but I usually wear a belt.

How many pairs do you have?

How do you match them ?

I have an array of Thurston barathea solids which I wear basically every day:

navy
maroon
gold
dove grey
hunter
khaki

I also have some silk aptterns which I tend to never use. I like to keep it simple and coordinate with an off color in the tie i'm wearing.

Same here, with one exception: a vintage Brioni suit that is not cut for braces.

I avoid them altogether in the summer, and have my summer suits cut for belt trousers. Braces are just too hot.

WIth all suits but linen. Purple, red, and green generally - on occasion, white or black. Solid Thurstons.

Never, because I don't own any. I have had my custom suits made with braces buttons, just in case.

Hunter brown? Or is green for farmer too?
post #15 of 28
Of course, green is for farmer too! I queried Ernest on that very point in a thread we had not too long before he was banned, in the course of which he stated that he had never articulated this as a principle because it was too obvious to need mentioning.
