    Thank you very much for your detailed feedback. Posts like yours are pretty much the main reason that I decided to start posting fit pics on SF.
    I think I really get what you mean ;). Usually I never have my hands in my pockets so the question whether I can move comfortably or not did not arise so far.
    (besides: in the German forum "Stilmagazin" they allways tell you that having your hands in your pockets is a no-go for a real gentleman...)
    But to be honest: I actually never thought about the theory behind braces and if they are a better choice for flat front or pleated trousers.
    I try to only buy pants that fit so well that I neither need braces nor a belt. But with the braces the pants "fall" better - I don't know how you say it in English so I hope you know what I mean.

    Just to continue the convo between Flyingmonkey + Adolesco, I humbly, barely disagree that flat fronts = no suspenders (although you will see more pleated pants with suspenders than you will flat fronts), I think is has more to do with the rise, where the pant waist sits on you. Scbrowns looks above is great, flat front pants but higher rise than what is trendy and the suspenders work. As a matter of fact (actually, just my opinion), on paper this fit should not work. I don't like cardigans with ties. I don't like suspenders without suit jackets. But I think this is great. Pant fit is great, shirt looks good, tie looks good and the sweater is playing the role of a sportcoat here. Taking a close look at this fit, and you see something that would most likely be worn by Cary Grant or Astaire at home right before bedding the latest hollywood starlet.

    Very nice first outfit and nice to see you here.

    I think the rise (Leibhöhe) of the pants is to low to wear it with braces.

    Quote:The issue for me is more with flat-fronts vs. pleated trousers than the braces thing - although with pleated trousers, you are far more likely to need braces.

    Any chance you havwe a full/better pic of this? Showing the sweater/shirt/tie texture? And I am assuming those are flannels and ideally you are wearing something suede on your feet :) This ticks off a lot of boxes that I don't think people can appreciate at first glance and I would like to make a post with the pic on my blog.

    Full size pic looks like flannel trousers and woollen tie... I might be wrong

    That's an understatement given judging by my 1st post.
