Finding Well-Fitting Trouser Braces


The height and construction of trousers vary, unless you always wear the same cut. Most of us are not that disciplined, so one pair of braces will not be enough.


We need braces in different lengths and designs, so the buckles on the front can be placed below our chest, where they make less noise, and so that the joint on the back will lie flat. My latest challange came with trousers from Arnulf. I had to have a pair of braces altered to make them fit the trousers and me.

At Henry Poole’s in the 1970s

The suits haven’t changed much, but the large pointed shirt collar, the big tie knot, and hairstyle reveal what decade we are in. The footage introduces Henry Poole mainly. A young Angus Cundey, father of the present manager Simon Cundey, is there with his father. A very good-looking double breasted suit at the end, by the way.

A Sartorial Bolshevik

Duke-Windsor-Portrait-The-Journal-of-Style“He is fond of simplicity in attire nowadays – an old tweed sports-coat with a pair of gray flannel slacks are his favorite clothes for working in his garden. In his wardrobe are several suits he has had for many years. Not so long ago he was regarded by Savile Row as something of sartorial Bolshevik. Fond of bright colors, his tastes were regarded as too extreme to be in style, but he initiated many new styles —double-breasted dinner-jackets, soft cuffs on evening shirts, cuffs on the striped trousers worn with a cutaway coat, once, only, a sweater with a dinner-jacket. In his every-day clothes he affects large checks. His plus fours are very plus.”

[Literary Digest on the Prince of Wales / Duke of Windsor, June 1935]
