Why would you take your jacket off. Its not like they are uncomfortable
post #92 of 103

I do take my jacket off, because otherwise I'll start sweating like a friggin' fountain. My braces are on display right now. I'm alone at the office anyways... lol8[1].gif

If I may ask, what do you do workwise?

I have recently discovered the merits of hanging out the braces as opposed to chucking them around since they crease pretty badly. Hoping that the creases will hang out.

Very nice, that is quite the collection.

I scored a sweet pair of white formal moire Thurstons on eBay a month or so ago for a black tie function. They are pretty awesome if I do say so myself.

Yes, the bay can be a good place to look for things sometimes.

I picked up the blue boxcloth braces brand new from an ebay seller for 40 GBP (they now retail for 72 GBP and above for the boxcloth). Thurston prices have gone up quite a bit over the course of the last few years, no doubt due to their increasing popularity, and probably, due to the cost of raw materials. They also seem to have phased out quite a number of colours for the boxcloth braces. Lower profit margin on those? I don't know.

 What's best for guy who sits 11-12 hours in job 5 days in a week: belt or braces? I'm considering a switch to braces but won't do that if this would ruin my comfort.


Thanks.

^ - I wear braces almost exclusively. I find them much more comfortable than belts but YMMV. They also help trousers hang better and more consistently during the day.

It's totally a personal choice. Some people like braces, some people can't stand them.

Will it look OK to wear black formal (satin) braces with a charcoal suit/white shirt/black shoes?

* I know the stock answer is "it doesn't matter, they should never be seen," but this is for my wedding and there is a high likelihood the jacket will be off on the dance floor and people will be taking pictures.

If you can have them shortened so the adjusters are nearer to your waist and so no longer distracting from your face they will look even better.
