I am having a basic formal suit done in a medium gray fresco. I love suspenders and the traditional feel but find they are just too impractical for my context. I usually walk into a meeting or social event and more often than not remove my jacket. Or, remove my jacket anyway when just walkihng around the office. For this reason, I will probably go with belt, and have two pairs of basic gray pants that double as dress odd trousers. Do you lose anything with belt over suspenders for suits? I understand you get a slightly less better drape, but is there anything else? Has anyone else faced this issue?
