An Essential Article in the Wardrobe of the Antiwar Conservative

Suspenders ("braces" to our Britannic friends; "suspenders" there refer to a far more exciting article of clothing) seem the natural choice for the sartorial traditionalist. I myself made the move about a week ago, and will never go back to belts. I made this decision before knowing the connection of belts to militarism: "Prior to the First World War, belts were largely decorative outside of military uniforms (and even then were often more decorative than practical among officers and aristocrats)" — Men's Suspenders - Why and How to wear Braces with Trousers.

As with bow ties, suspenders are a bridge too far for me.
