Will probably check on here for some Thurston's every now and then biggrin.gif

I wear them with two-piece suits all the time and don't think it's a big deal. I got into braces when most of my suits started coming with side tabs instead of belt loops but I think it's fairly easy for a competent tailor to remove the belt loops from a suit you already have.

I just had some belt loops removed. $20.

Not to be over the top here, but how hard is it for a slightly obsessed schmuck with a decent pen knife to remove the belt loops from his own trousers during an episode of Castle and save himself a few bucks? After all, we're just talking about cutting a few threads and gently pulling them out of the fabric. Perhaps add a few diagonal tugs to snug the weave back together. I'm just saying.

It depends how they are attached. Sometimes they are just sewn to the front of the trouser, in which case it should be simple to cut them off yourself. Other times though, the end of the loop is caught in the seam which attaches the waistband, so removing the loops involves cutting open a section of this seam before removing the loop then resewing the seam.

I got my first pair of trousers made up with suspender buttons and recently converted all of my other pants to have them. I see no reason to wear anything else. Changed my life and nobody knows it except my girlfriend, and my barber when I take off my jacket for a haircut.

I'm a big fan of wearing braces/suspenders as well and I understand the rule that they shouldn't be seen, but I really can't imagine sitting in my office all day without removing my suit coat. Do you guys really keep your jackets on all day?

The only time my jacket comes off is at home at night and when I get my hair cut.

You must have a low fiber diet, then.

If you can afford them, great, but please consider www.beltoutlet.com as well.

This seems like spam[1].gif to me. Thurston's aren't expensive.

If so, based on what I have observed over the years, I suggest that his first pair of braces be the type that go on the teeth.

I'd probably go for second hand anyway, I am a poor student, but second hand they shouldn't break the bank.

 

Worst case scenario I'd rather pick up some brooks brothers ones for ridiculously cheap rather than the site you suggested, but I appreciate it nonetheless icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

And my teeth are sexy frown.gif
