    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    I used to wear them frequently (5-10 years ago), now much less frequently. I have probably 15 pairs, some are very nice and I really should wear them more. [​IMG]

    I only wear belts in warm weather, and for golf.

    I always recommend braces and belts as an accessory. Belts should always complement shoes and braces play against the tie decoration and shoes( the fittings complementing the shoes). As a rule I never sell either to hold ones pants up, in some instances for a portly I will recommend braces, it works to hold the front up to create a nice drape to the crease. So, if you need either to hold up your pants, I would recommend another tailor.

    I wear braces with every suit - they're just more comfortable. Braces should hold up your pants - they should slightly float and never be more than snug.
