    This might be a shitty advice but I’d suggest just accepting it, chances are you might be giving off vibes as if you’re uncomfortable in your clothes whish sucks balls. Do not compare your outfit with carefully set-up fashion photoshoots, it’ll never look as good.

      Just be handsome. But in all seriousness, wear them in a traditional sense. Get button-on braces and wear them with high-waisted pants. You look like a dork if you’re wearing the clip-on kind and if they’re super skinny. But at the end of the day, some people are going to think you look like a dork no matter how you wear your braces. Accept that and wear them with confidence

        Since we’re on the topic, where do I even find theses types of pants. I’m getting into suspenders myself, only starting out but no physical shop has any buttons for suspenders. I’ve resorted to clip on and they do a decent job. Hell, my first pair were hook-ons(?)

          Unfortunately low/mid rise pants seem to be all that are produced these days. Try eBay and thrift stores for older-style pants with higher waists. If they don’t have buttons for suspenders already sewn on, you can just do it yourself. I know next to nothing about sewing but I can sew buttons on, it’s pretty easy

          for giga casual shit: repro or old military trousers khakis etc with suspender buttons are easy to find, repro workwear and jeans with buttons are easy to find, there’s a bunch of companies that still make modern workwear with suspenders.
          everything else: have a tailor add them, source the buttons yourself so they look nice and go with your pants, they might not have something ideal on hand. some tailors will do thicker fabrics like denims and stuff some won’t. dress pants are easy to get done.

        What’s to add here: the character wears a jacket and coat before, the braces are just a natural part of the outfit. What OP wants to do might be wearing them on display all the time, that looks try-hard

        This doesn’t solve the problem of creases.

        No, I wear them under a jacket but I’m still annoyed because they’re creased up at the end of the day.

          I gotta admit, I have no hecking clue what you’re talking about with these creases. You mean your shirt becomes untucked because it’s not as tight around the waist as it would be with a belt? Or do you mean the shirt creases around the braces due to them being tight against your chest? If it’s the former, higher-waisted pants will help with that. If it’s the latter, then maybe try wearing shirts with less excess fabric? But really, don’t worry about nitpicky stuff like that. Trust me, no one besides yourself actually notices/cares.

            That’s what I meant. Sorry for being obscure.
            >try wearing shirts with less excess fabric?
            I wear "traditional" shirts, which aren’t meant to be a slim fit.
            >no one besides yourself actually notices/cares
            Oh, I know. But I care.

            have you looked into shirt stays?
            if you like a relaxed fit for a shirt, but still want it to stay put where it counts, I’d check them out.
            of course, tailoring helps better.

            Then it doesn’t appear that there’s any solution to your problem. Your problem stems from excess fabric in the shoulders/chest yet you don’t want to wear something with less fabric. Sorry pal, you gotta accept the creases on and move on

    knowing which details to pay attention to and which to ignore is the difference between style and costume, between wearing your clothes and having them wear you.
