Looking to buy a pair of white formal braces, but I'm not about to drop $80+ on the Thurstons. Can anyone recommend a reasonably decent looking alternative that's not so pricey?
And yes, I realize that for some of you with money burning holes in your pockets, 80 bucks for these seems like nothing. That's not really the case for me, so please refrain from the unhelpful "just shell out the $80 or live forever in embarrassment with your shitty braces" type responses. I don't expect to find something of Thurston quality at half the price; however, I am looking for something that will still appear rather "formal" and not look too terrible.
