If all you pants are cut in a similar style, I would consider foregoing braces with them, and having some pants with a higher rise made to accommodate them...

 

Note: this comes from a dude who prefers his waistband to hit at/slightly above the navel, so take it with the necessary grain of salt.

 

I didn't think of the rise issue, which is a good point.

 

Steed Tailor's instagram has a picture today of a pair of trousers they're making for a client that looks really good, the style of which is meant to be used with braces only, and the double forward pleats create an excellent line.

Are you referring to the no waistband pic, Andy?

If so, I agree wholeheartedly. Those look awesome.

Yes, that's the one. I may have to get them to make a pair like that for me.

As a follow-up question for anybody: Is it wrong to keep belt loops on pants if i'm not going to wear a belt?

In short, yes.

Back to tweed today. The camera angle makes it look much boxier and shorter than real life. I should take the waist in about an inch but I often wear this with thicker sweaters so I am skeptical.
