    If you don't care how well they match, can't your tailor just make some?

    This, I was thinking if there is any extra fabric on your pant cuffs, this might work.

    She could. And there's even a bit of room to nip the trousers up and take actual suit fabric.

    But that costs money. Forget that. Ripping belt loops off and sewing on while watching American Pickers costs me $0.

    Here are a few pics, copied from the original SF post that I saw and PMed about. These are a little lighter than the IRL color. It's very dark charcoal.

    I'm not sure if Grendel was referring to loops or adjusters, but I'll second his suggestion if it was for side adjusters. Don't try to match, because you never will. Get him to make something that complements, like a fine leather adjuster maybe.

    On the other hand, I continue to believe that wearing braces is the single best reason to put on a suit instead of trousers and an odd jacket in the morning. They can not slip down or ride up. The pants don't have to be cinched down tight around your waist. You always, always have exactly the break you want at the cuffs. I put buttons into every pair of suit pants I get that doesn't come with them. (Well, I eventually do. :embar: )

    I doubt you will eve find the exact same shade of any color you are trying to match.

    Here's an idea. Contrasting color belt loops! I think white loops will look great and stylish on your charcoal suit! It's subtle because they are only belt loops, hard to see, yet tasteful because it's only white, not some crazy color. I've always love the idea of contrast color button holes, too!

    Hello gents.

    I'm in need of a selvedge, chambray, light blue or light grey denim work shirt, in size Medium or a large that fits like a Medium.

    Something like this. I would like to get it before Halloween...I'm willing to pay reasonable prices. Thanks!

    I'm crazy enough to try something like this, but this is intended to be a fairly conservative suit -- it being solid charcoal and a fairly conservative cut.

    But no matter. Mission already accomplished. Found a shitty pair of no-name S120 gray trou that were $3. Color is srsly a near match. Now, would the loops meet a Sammy QC test? No. They're small and, if I'm honest, a little flimsy. But they will hold up a belt, and I'll damn near guarantee no one will ever be able to tell.

    Oh man, I have this crazy idea of after building a solid wardrobe, I'm gonna have my tailor stitch red button holes on a navy or blue suit with matching contrasting belt loops! It will be my "I'm here to par-tay suit"!

    Alden shoes are still available for trade! Just a tad too roomy for my foot or I'd love to keep them. If you have other Aldens (9-1/2 D), Selvedge denim (size 33-34) or a SC (42L in a slim fit) you want to unload hit me up and we can talk sizing!

    Still have the 5 Oxxford suits to measure but expect them to be size 48-50L US

    I struggle to imagine the kind of party that would be appropriate for...
