    I may have got a member on here to pick me up a Burgundy and a Navy pair of BB braces from a local thrift store to him, so hopefully I will have a decent set up! :D

    One thing to note; it sounds like Thurston makes all but their Elastic braces from silk, while Brooks Brothers uses nylon for most of theirs (though they do have a few patterned offerings in silk, albeit more expensive).

    only if you're living in the 1890s.

    if so, also remember not to appear anywhere outside your bedroom "in your shirtsleeves", and

    ALWAYS wear a hat when outdoors.

    Yeah, he managed to pick up a silk pair for himself with the fleece pattern on :) He wouldn't sell me those though, haha!

    All of my trousers have side tabs already. I never wore a belt. Only difference now is buttons.

    Mine are charcoal/ dark grey. I only wear navy and charcoal in case they do happen to show. I personally don't like "fun" anything.

    Another 480 million pairs of BB suspenders exported and the US is in the black for the month.
    I just bought some lovely Thurston braces -- must keep the Commonwealth strong. [​IMG]

    Haha, I try my best! I'll probably live in the US when I am older anyway, so just securing my future ;D
