It is also hard when the man has disproportionally long arms like a neanderthal to his torso. This is my problem. People tend to look at the hem of a jacket and ones hands to make this determination, but this method is flawed.

Maybe we can establish an age-pants height ratio. I fear I may be hiking them up so early that they will sit on my neck when I reach o/o's age.

^You could wear a tie as a belt like Astaire, only your belt will be your tie as well.

"High waisted trousers" (i.e., trousers that sit at the right place) are age appropriate at any age so long as you have a competent tailor (natural swag on a hundred zillion also helps).

This would eliminate the need for braces. Sounds like an experiment worth doing.

I'd suggest the efficacy of this idea has already been shown by the Hefty Cinch Sack, so we can move right to trials in humans.

I did that yesterday. I can't speak for OD/OT, but I did it to deal with neatly managing the length. I would prefer the buckle to be centered, but not if it meant having the belt end flapping around.

Here's a rare one of Astaire wearing a belt as a belt. Still looking for one of him wearing a belt as a tie.
