    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.
