Though with a pair of today’s fitted, well-tailored trousers, suspenders seem hardly necessary, they sure do make a fine accessory for a man (or a woman, really). We love this shot of Pharrell Williams, sporting a relaxed, hard-day’s-work look, suspenders hung loosely about his legs. The suspenders seen here are certainly traditional, but if you want to spice things up a bit, the options out there right now run the gamut. Check out these Navy Paisley Print Braces by Topman or these classic Chase Stripe Suspenders by Trafalgar. Lo and behold, eBay had its own funky options, like this unisex set in a geometric orange pattern.
