Braces with a midnight blue tuxedo.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello All,

 

Just a curious question, I've purchased a midnight blue tuxedo with peak satin lapels and I am looking to get the pants tailored to accommodate for braces, particularly the Albert Thurston White Moire Braces as worn by Daniel Craig in Skyfall/Casino Royale.

 

First question is: I am 20 with a slim build, these braces measure at 40mm width...do you think they will be too thick for me? I am a size 36 - 38 slim jacket, depending on the brand.

 

Second: These braces come with two different metal finished for the adjustment buckles, Gold or Silver, I noticed with a black tux in Casino Royale bond wore the gold ones whereas in Skyfall he wore the silver with the midnight blue....Should I pick the one that is relevant to my suit color?

Those are the braces there. 

 

:)

In theory, it does not matter. You should not be exposing your braces anyway, as you should keep your jacket on.

+1. The only person who should technically see them is yourself, but if you like them then go for it. I'm a slight build too and wear Thurston with suits, and they are a little overwhelming, however keeping your jacket on at all times is the best idea otherwise you begin to look a bit like Patrick Bateman.

There isn't a relevant suit colour either for the buckles...I'd choose the one that matches your watch colour, or perhaps the buckles on the back of your cummerbund - both meaningless but better than nothing.

Go with the color metal that matches your cuff links and studs

I always wear white braces with Gilt finishings.. I think It looks rather spiffing

Bought the braces guys, ended up going for the ones with the silver finishings, these things look amazing.
