Nice. Any color and material recommendations for my first braces ever?

For the boxcloth braces, what size would be recommended? I am 6 feet on the nose. Do I go with XL or L and cut down to size?

Albert Thurston has one of the best. I love their sized braces.

Trafalgar makes some real funky pattern that are called limited editions. I hate the fact that they are one size fits all.

The Armoury or Albert Thurston!

I would go wine with navy stripes from Thurston, but buy a brace that will compliment your wardrobe nicely.

or if you want to spend the money, I really like this Trafalgar brace, but it's a little less versatile—more for the country club I think.

Are the fabric ends of Trafalgar nice? Leather looks better to me, but I have no idea what I'm talking about.

In my opinion the fabric ends lend to a more formal look.

Do you think silver is a good basic color? I'm unsure about darker colors because they would clash with my light colored shirts.

Dark colors like navy go well with light shirts because it creates a nice contrast—You don't want your outfit to be monochrome. As for the ends on the Trafalgar brace, they're not necessarily better or worse, just a little more formal/dressy, as someone else mentioned.

First braces ever? Don't jump into Thurstons just yet. I own a pair, and they're very nice, but they're not that much better than these, on sale now. Get a pair in navy and in burgundy.

These are fun, too, and also on sale.
