It’s a Hold Up! Embracing the Brace

Throughout history, when it came to holding up their trousers, men have followed the fashion dictates of the era. While braces ?otherwise known as suspenders? have been in and out of fashion over the last century, they are becoming popular again in America and Britain following the resurgence of styles seen in period movie dramas as well as from celebrity wears including Daniel Craig and Larry King.

Whether you choose leather, silk or boxcloth, braces are a stylish option if belts don’t work well for you, or if you just want to express your own personal style.

General rules:

• In traditional or formal settings, it is considered a faux pas to wear both suspenders and a belt at the same time. Redundant as well.
• It is now considered acceptable on both sides of the Atlantic for braces to be visible
• Brightly colored braces, while considered gauche in Britain, are all the rage in the US
