Having recently purchased some braces, I began wearing them in sport coats since most of my pants are Polo RL and have existing buttons for braces. Wearing braces is pretty great. It allows you to wear a range of pant sizes at the desired height without securing it to your waist with a tight belt. Because of all that, it lets the pants drape smoothly. I probably wouldn't wear them without a sport coat/suit though as they aren't meant to be seen. Otherwise, no one even knows you're wearing any.
