braces/suspenders for trousers

8850 Views 15 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Bog
i had my black-tie trousers made without being cut for braces/suspenders (or a belt). they originally sat on my waist very well, but now not quite that much as i've lost a little weight.
is it possible to have them fitted for braces now? are there any recommended tailors to go to in london? i've got an ede & ravenscroft where i'm at (cambridge, uk), but i've had no experience with it.

also, i have no idea how to go about choosing a pair of braces.
what criteria does it have to meet?
do braces come in specific sizes or are they of the adjustable one-size-fits-all variety?
are the buttons sewn to the inside or outside of the waistband?
where exactly should the buttons be placed--how far apart should the two in the front be, and how deep into the trousers should they go?
