    I was wondering what peoples opinions of braces on say a 20 year old who is pretty slim? I've tried them on before and am not really sure how i feel about them but i feel they look good on oldermen.

    You will get the inevitable "Who do you think you are, kid, Gordon Gekko?" comments. If you can live with that, and if you are not working in some office where there are status hierarchies determining who can wear what, then go for it.

    Just make sure your trousers are cut for them. Suspeders really look stupid with low-rise trousers worn at the hips. Gekko = good. Ollie = bad.

    Braces looked great on Anthony J. Drexel Biddle, Jr., and he was about as thin as they get.
