My father wears suspenders and my grandfather wore suspenders, but who wears them now? They are so cool, I would like to give them a go, but how do I know which are right for me? I am forty-five and wear business suits five days a week, although the dress code at my office loosens on Friday. My partner and I have an active social life, which calls for suits as well as blazers and sport jackets.
Suspender wearers are dashing lookers, and, yes, forty-five is just the right age to start wearing them. They reek of success. Nevertheless, there are serious dos and don’ts.
For instance, you wouldn’t wear suspenders, also called braces, with metal clips in the front and back. Instead, suspenders/braces should have buttons and the trousers have to have buttonholes on the waistband. Ideally the fabric, which would be silk or felt, should not be too narrow.
For a cool guide to wearing suspenders/braces, Antonio Centeno is an authority. To learn more, here is a link to his helpful infographic, ‘How To Properly Wear Suspenders?’
