|I think it has a lot to do with the difference between modern and vintage style waistlines. Back 'the day', when braces were the norm, mens trouser waistlines would be just that: At your waist. So, wearing modern cut trousers with braces, either means pulling the braces right down, or, pulling the trousers right up in a silly clown style. And you can forget hipsters; just wear a belt. |
But anyway, high waisted trousers look cool, if you can find em. Especially on girls for that Katherine Hepburn look. Oh, and dont forget, a lot of braces are button on, which means you need to try and find trousers with braces buttons. Clip-ons are sort of cheating, but nobody will really care unless they are an arse.
