Where do you guys buy braces? No pictures of teeth please.
The best place.
Nice. Any color and material recommendations for my first braces ever?
For the boxcloth braces, what size would be recommended? I am 6 feet on the nose. Do I go with XL or L and cut down to size?
Get your own thread poop muncher.
Albert Thurston has one of the best. I love their sized braces.
Trafalgar makes some real funky pattern that are called limited editions. I hate the fact that they are one size fits all.
The Armoury or Albert Thurston!
I would go wine with navy stripes from Thurston, but buy a brace that will compliment your wardrobe nicely.
or if you want to spend the money, I really like this Trafalgar brace, but it's a little less versatile—more for the country club I think.
Are the fabric ends of Trafalgar nice? Leather looks better to me, but I have no idea what I'm talking about.
In my opinion the fabric ends lend to a more formal look.
Do you think silver is a good basic color? I'm unsure about darker colors because they would clash with my light colored shirts.
Dark colors like navy go well with light shirts because it creates a nice contrast—You don't want your outfit to be monochrome. As for the ends on the Trafalgar brace, they're not necessarily better or worse, just a little more formal/dressy, as someone else mentioned.
First braces ever? Don't jump into Thurstons just yet. I own a pair, and they're very nice, but they're not that much better than these, on sale now. Get a pair in navy and in burgundy.
These are fun, too, and also on sale.
