On my last couple of MTM suits I'vegone with braces, and find them to be more comfortable than belts. I really like them, despite the odd glance when they are noticed (I work in a hospital so sometimes have to change in and out of a lab coat, etc.) I have an OTR linen suit that I like a lot but the trousers have belt loops. I was toying with the idea of having the loops removed and adding buttons for braces - the rise is high enough to accomodate, even though the trousers weren't cut for braces. My question is, do braces go with the somewhat more casual look of a linen suit? Or will it look out of place? My gut says it will be fine but I don't want to ruin a suit that I really like.
