According to the fashion industry, braces/suspenders have alternated between being on the “in” and “out” lists over the years. While everything in fashion has its time, I feel that suspenders should have never been considered “out” (unless you’re talking about out and proud).
Suspenders are one of those accessories that provide that je ne sais quoi detail that defines dapper.
Suspenders as an accessory are a definite DO. But, I personally feel that there is one major ‘DON’T’ when wearing suspenders, and that is wearing a belt along with them. Suspenders are both fashionable and functional. If the functional purpose of suspenders is to hold your pants up, then you don’t need a belt.
