Well, autumn seems like it is finally here in the Minne-Apple. Rain and a 30 degree temp drop will do that. And thus we begin the slow slide to winter.
But in the meantime, I guess it’s time to bust out my fall wardrobe.
This year I’m em”brace”ing suspenders.
A few years ago I was all about vests (and bow ties). This was back when vests were nearly impossible to find— of course now you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a shop that sells men’s vests.
While I still like a good, dapper vest on a guy (and i quite enjoy hand tied bow ties), I needed some new, sartorial splendor.
Now my thing is (are?) suspenders. Not crazy colors or cheap, elastic ones. But leather ones.
Thinner, fashionable leather suspenders.
I think they complete my hipster transition, no?
And leather suspenders aren’t “new” per se— the hipsters and lumbersexuals have been on the forefront of this trend. But I just don’t see leather braces much in the fashion lexicon of the everyday male.
So that’s why I have adopted them.
Now to get shirts and pants that support this decision…..
