    As you surely must be aware that suspenders/braces are consider "underwear", and thus should NOT be seen by other people........

    It doesn't matter what color/pattern your suspenders are. Wear them solely to hold up your pants and perhaps add a bit of individualism to your outfit. Don't match with anything.

    it is totally acceptable to wear silk braces with non-black tie. Traditionally, Silk and boxcloth were traditional, but Silk is easy to wear out, so make sure to let them rest between wearings or you will age them prematurely.

    two at least are models about their trade posing for a magazine/web so not representative of anything. The first one may well be from a film so not representative of anything either.

    I wear red boxcloth Thurstons all the time. I agree with not showing them off, though. They hold my pants up approximately as well as any other color!

    That thought is about as right as thinking the proper pants to wear today is tights and a cod piece.

    haha true I didn't realize.. well to be honest I never wear suspenders but I like the idea of it ^^ and I think that the outfits are similar because the stylists of gossip girl were going for the old gordon gekko wall street look for chuck bass.. I just think that he can pull it off and it looks cool [​IMG]

    Good advice; I have worn several pairs of silk braces out this way. There is no reason not to wear them with a suit.

    I guess I never considered them "underwear,"

    Furthermore I know the leather on the braces should match the leather of my shoes, but does the silk match the tie? or match the suit?

    maybe i'm an amateur too, but why the face palm? these leathers shouldn't match, or it shouldn't matter because it's underwear?

    At least you're not wearing clip ons.

    Whatever you end up doing, for the love of god, please do not wear suspenders with a belt. A lot of my high school friends do that and it is stupid because not only does it look bad but it shows how stupid you are. You wear suspenders because you think you are edgy and fashionable but instead it shows that you know nothing about clothing.
