    Every day for work and always with a suit (and tux of course). Also once in a while with an odd caot and trousers, but I usually wear a belt.

    How many pairs do you have?

    How do you match them ?

    I have an array of Thurston barathea solids which I wear basically every day:

    navy
    maroon
    gold
    dove grey
    hunter
    khaki

    I also have some silk aptterns which I tend to never use. I like to keep it simple and coordinate with an off color in the tie i'm wearing.

    Same here, with one exception: a vintage Brioni suit that is not cut for braces.

    I avoid them altogether in the summer, and have my summer suits cut for belt trousers. Braces are just too hot.

    Never, because I don't own any. I have had my custom suits made with braces buttons, just in case.

    Of course, green is for farmer too! I queried Ernest on that very point in a thread we had not too long before he was banned, in the course of which he stated that he had never articulated this as a principle because it was too obvious to need mentioning.
