In this case, there's another option which is to eschew jeans entirely. But I get your point.

Perfect opportunity to wear a three piece, TBH

Not to start a shitstorm, but I think this rule no longer applies to most of us. I'm sure that in some business environments and/or high social classes this is still the norm, but I think that most men these days -- even stylish ones -- remove their jackets occasionally, and without scandal, in public. It's going depend largely on the circumstance.

+1 Navy and Burgundy are also excellent choices. I have suspenders in many colors, but the ones in Navy get far more use than any of the others, with the Burgundy running in second place.

I actually like the idea of no one seeing your suspenders except for myself or if they are seen its not done on purpose. A simple arm swing or turn may expose them. The entire "flashy in public" look or the "showoff every aspect of my outfit" look is not for me. Its a little immature too in my opinion.

+1. Even though I'm not a fan of wearing braces without a jacket, no one would say anything if I did. Of course, you shouldn't head for work with a shirt, slacks, tie and braces with no jacket, but at most places there should be no problem if you have to remove your jacket and your suspenders can be seen for a while.

I can agree with taking off your jacket while at your desk at work or maybe somewhere sitting where you just may get hot. I do see how it can largely depend on the circumstance though. I like the hidden suspenders concept though.

I have no idea what you mean.

Agreed. For some reason, I feel naked going to work without a jacket, but I have no qualms about removing it once I arrive. Go figure.

I would never endorse it without a coat/waistcoat covering it.

Only the sight of sock suspenders can be a bigger downer than a flash of a suspender, nowadays at least.

Many young people will actually refuse to wear suspenders because they think they'd look like this:

But this young fellow wearing suspenders doesn't look like that at all:

Now, I wouldn't walk like that out in the street, or if I was at the church on a wedding, but I see no problem in doing it while I am at work (it's very hot in there). Do I have to say no to the extreme comfort it is to wear a pair of braces, just because I am going to take my jacket off at the office? I don't think so...

I kind of think the young and thin man wearing them looks more like a flashy, pompous douchebag than the former, tbh.
post #42 of 117

Yeah probably, and he should put his jacket on, but my point is that he looks young anyways. Many young people, at least around here, refuse to wear braces because they believe they will look like an old man, not a pompous douchebag.

As I live in a hot/steamy climate I personally can excuse a man appearing on the street with his jacket in hand. As long as he puts it back on when entering the wonderful world of modern air conditioning.

I know it isn't proper. But when it's 95 degrees and 95% humidity I'm willing to give a little on propriety. Especially during the business day.

Ugh, like the next few days here in New York. Almost 100 degrees and insane humidity.
post #45 of 117

We reached 113F here last week (and it will probably go higher) but thank God we don't have such levels of humidity. I've been to Miami in the summer though and I can't even imagine wearing a jacket there...
