    You mean wearing both braces and belt at the same time? Nah, can't do that. (:

    Very nice trousers. Your tailor did a fine job on 'em.

    Agree x 2.

    The perfect way to look like a prat is to wear both at the same time.

    Never trust a fellow who doesn't trust his own trousers enough to wear either a belt or braces but rather both

But the thinness of typical dress trousers today seem to contribute to a tendency for trousers to accentuate the features of the individual underneath, or they just hang formlessly on the person. They lack the substance to establish their own identity.

    I like those trousers Rudie, and would likely buy some myself, if they didn't have to be bespoked.
    I agree with you 100%, Tommy. However, I think it applies to all tailored clothing (suits, tuxedos, pants-as mentioned before, cutaway coats, tail coats, vests, skirts, dresses and especially overcoats).

    Hear, hear! I don't like the thin, wrinklyness of the modern day suit.

    Well, the fabric has Savile Row on the label. Don't know that a Savile Row tailor would run quite so cheap on a pair of trousers. Señor Hussein of Hanbury Street, on the other hand …

    Awesome trousers. Yes, suspenders certainly are the bee's knees. I'm a recent convert to the suspenders phenomenon, though I prefer to hide them beneath my waistcoat.
