In order to solve this puddle in my trousers issue, a lot of folks have suggested suspenders. Is that a better fix than having the tailor fixing the balance? Also, I'll need to get buttons added into them Formosa trousers right?!

Are clip ons SF approved?

Please don't wear clip on suspenders with a $2000 suit. It's by far the worst thing that igents have invented, next to going sockless with business suits.

This should be better.

No to clip on suspenders. Either get proper ones or don't bother.

What's up with your trousers?
post #24893 of 37396
This conversation is good for both GuP and noodles. I've been wearing the Corneliani for RL pleated trousers for a few months now with proper suspenders and the fit is better and more comfortable than any belted look I have tried. Pleats are usually invisible. The rise is a bit high on these even for me but that my larger thighs and rear can fit comfortably makes it worthwhile. Currently the leg opening is a pretty conservative 8.75 on most pairs but I may taper one to about 8 and see how it looks.

Is it roomier in the chest & waist or just waist? Is the button stance lower than that of the Milano? I found the Milano to be very baggy when I tried it on in store. Wore 54L(normally a 52L/42L in most suit makers' sizing) to fit my shoulders, but the coat was so roomy. It required more than 3" of suppression in the waist and I'm by no means lean. Glad to hear the rise is higher. I friggin hate the low-rise trousers that are put out today. With the bottom of the crotch pulled up to the max, the waistband was 2" below my navel, and I can't even wear trou with the crotch touching my sack.

This?! And how the heck do I get the right size? Is 44" or 110 cm enough for 6 ft dude?

What's wrong with the white loops? Maybe I'm overthinking, but I'm not sure I'd want to wear suspenders with black loops if I'm wearing brown shoes. One can argue that most of the time nobody sees your suspenders anyway I suppose, but then I don't see the issue with the white loops.

Honestly man, they're a pain to wear. I stopped wearing them and have vowed to only use side tab adjusters when I get suits made. I HATE using the restroom when wearing braces. I mean...wtf are you supposed to do if you gotta unload?

 

Do they work the best? Yes. Are they practical? Arguable.

OMFG. I can't believe how worked up you people are getting about fucking suspenders.

NOODLES: Get some non-stretchy clip-on suspenders and try them out for a few wears. See if you like having your pantalooooons hang from your shoulders and whether it fixes the draping issues. If you like the effect, get buttons added to your waistband and get a pair of standard suspenders for each suit so that you don't have to swap every day. They're a perfect item to purchase secondhand. A local consignment shop sells them at such a low price that I can get 5-6 for the price of one new set of Thurstons, and they are legion on eBay.

No one will care about the color of the fabric or the leather ends. The very fact of them will be what attracts attention. Have fun. Get what you like. Wear without care.

Don't do it! What is your shoe size?
