I haven't worn suspenders with a jacket in more than a dozen years, perhaps longer.

I had the "only with suits" mentality, but comfort has won in the long run. I wear suspenders with odd coats, but only if the trousers are wool and have pleats. Whether this is in good taste or not, I don't know...

If wearing suspenders makes you more comfortable, then wear suspenders. As you note, they shouldn't be seen anyway.

Since you can see the actual colors, what do you think?

i dont have any jackets like that unfortunately.

i think it looks really nice, in person, the contrasts are very pleasing imo. thank you for the idea. smile.gif

I think that is the right attitude for many things. The flip side is this: if belts are appropriate for odd jackets, then a missing belt is odd for what is appropriate is missing.

I take it that you prefer belts then for odd jackets. This is a comfort, aesthetic issue perhaps, and not an issue of good taste? I don't remember if you comment on this in your book.

Interesting. Do you wear lower-rise trousers with odd jackets?

"Who" I believe...not "what". The father of the thread.

For the first month after I joined, I thought whnay was an abbreviation similar to waywrn. The apostrophe ess always confused me.

post #7663 of 13589

Me too.

FWIW, I find it ironic that the WAYWRN thread says HOF before it. I was so confused as to what HOF was until somebody clued me in that it meant "Hall of fame" facepalm.gif
post #7665 of 13589

Hmmm.. I thought it meant "House Of Freaks"....
