    Sven Raphael Schneider What do you think of having both side-adjusters and braces? I’m a big fan of braces, but my weight goes up and down. When I’ve lost weight, the fit of trousers with braces can be really off. I’ve also wondered if this would be a good idea with tuxedo trousers? It’s not like anyone would see my waistband with this type of clothing. As a side note, what part of Germany are you from? I was stationed in Würzburg for 18 months with the US Army. Thank you

    • JC, you can wear both, in fact most traditional fishtail trousers either have side adjusters or an adjuster in the back that you won’t see because it is covered by the vest. However, it may be uncomfortable sitting on it.
      I am originally from a small town in that area – Würzburg is about an hour away by car.

    Is having a single or double satin braid on striped trousers (that would be worn with a morning coat) acceptable, bizarre, elegant, unheard of, etc.?

    Button question here – are the waistcoat and jacket buttons traditionally horn or cloth covered? Thanks for a terrific site!!!
