In a lot of older movies (especially referring to the mob), You men wearing sleeve garters underneath their suits. I think that this originated because you couldn't buy your exact sleeve size, so you needed the garter to shorter the sleeve. If anyone has recently seen the Matrix, you can see Morpheus is wearing sleeve garters after he takes off his jacket to fight on top of the transport truck in the highway. In my opionon, I thought it actually looked pretty good and seemed to distinguish him as been well dressed / more attention to detail. But then of course, you're never really supposed to take off your suit jacket... Any opionons on sleeve garters?
