I don't know how important it is in the grand scheme of things but one thing Alan Flusser wrote in one of his books has really stuck with me, and that's that the metal adjusters on a man's braces should be near his waist rather than his shoulders so they don't reflect light into people's eyes.
Well I was dressing to come into the city the other day and pulled out a pair of brown Trafalgar braces to discover that the adjuster is at my shoulders, where all Trafalgars sit on me because they don't come in sizes. That triggered a purge. Turns out that I still had three pair of similarly unsized summer braces in my closet and they are in the bag for the resale shop now. Navy with red dots, marooon, and the aforementioned brown, all purchased long ago before I discovered braces that fit.
I have enough braces generally, so I needed to acquire only one replacement pair, the pictured Natal brown barathea I am going to wear these in town, undoubtedly with brown shoes. Unlike the shoes, they won't be visible except in glimpses. And they won't reflect in anyone's eyes because they are mediums.
So that will hopefully be that.
