    My pants fit. No beltloops. No suspenders. I suppose that if they were lose, I would throw on a pair.
    Your shirt never rides up? Or do you have a loop on it which attaches to your pants?

    I wore these with a charcoal suit yesterday, but no one saw them: [​IMG]

    His shirts are like baby's onesies, the front and back tails button up under your crotch, quite efficient unless you need to use the services.

    Very useful actually. I've even (brace yourself...[​IMG]) worn them with my DJ.

    Neah, the hat is not quite right.

    I was just extrapolating from the relative female/male heights.

    They're nice because they're both Regency And silhouetted. Beau Brummel is cool.

    I have a few pairs that I wear every now and then, mostly in autumn and winter. I find them supremely comfortable, much more so than wearing a belt.

    They are the only pair of Trafalgar Limited's that I've bought recently. Last pair I bought was maroon with golf clubs that I bought back in the '80's (I think). My formal pair is Trafalgar (black with three tiny white pinstripes).

    I know hardly anyone wears suspenders anymore.
    Most men that would have one time worn them, are now probably in their 70's or 80's


    I don't think they are that old. Millions of guys were wearing them 10-20 years ago, young guys, too. And they loved showing them off, ignoring the rules and advice that said keep a vest on if your jacket is off, etc. No one wore vests. Suspenders were a fad which is why few wear them now.

    But now that an entry-level brown belt cost $135.00, I expect them to make a comeback.
