Couldn't find this topic in the archives . . .

What are your thoughts, gentlemen, on brace/suspender buttons fastened to the outside rather than the inside of one's suit trousers? Vulgar and ostentatious? Perfectly proper? Stylish?

Is perfectly kosher with pants intended to be worn with a vest. One photo from Flusser comes to mind of Gary Cooper relaxing in shirtsleeves and exterior brace buttons.
By the way Amplified, is my avatar the picture of which you speak?
Remarkably, yes. I believe exterior buttons are actually the older style, as it makes buttoning easier and makes no visible difference with a vest.
