Twice as Much Fun
A friend of mine loaned me some vintage clip-on braces in mauve the other day. I was in the mood for mauve, what can I say? I've always been a button-braces man, but these clipped numbers worked really well with the informal clothes I was wearing. Since then I've been considering the hybrid — braces with dual switch-and-remove attachments so you can use them with buttons, say, on suits and with clips for those casual trousers of a weekend.
If you can also see the advantages of such a set up, then these own-label made in England herringbone tweed braces with brown leather fobs from Liverpool-based outfitters Morrows might be the thing.
I imagine the photographer knew he was visible on the slide-clips of the braces?
