Proper trouser break - Page 2

post #16 of 21
One more quickie regarding trouser breaks: There are no rules about breaks (unless you're in the military), beyond the normal parameters that there should be some degree of break and not too excessive a break resulting in sloppiness.  By the way, someone needs to advise Nino/Tony Corvato, apparently Dave Letterman's tailor,  that the trousers he's making for Dave suffer from waaay too much of a break, bordering on sloppy.   The advantage of braces/suspenders in this regard is one can make subtle adjustments to the level of break desired.  Some of my suits are made from a weight of cloth where a less aggressive break is desireable, other cloth can allow for a more aggressive break.  In any case, give yourself a "break" by not getting too worked up over trouser breaks.

Maybe that is intentional, to try to cover his white socks and loafers.

Anybody here seen flat-front trousers cut for wear with braces (i.e. with a loose waist and high-rise, as well as a possible fishback)?

I'd like to get into wearing braces to address trouser break once and for all, but my hip-rise flat fronts don't take kindly to braces. ...

Anyone have any pics of something like this? I'm having a hard time picturing this, because I tend to think of trousers cut for wear with braces as relatively full-cut, which is at odds with my idea of flat-front trousers.
