While I agree with what is said within maybe I would have wrote the article with smoother edges, I still consider this a good read, full of whit and humor coupled with real world advise.

So this will lead to the next bit on this topic.....TO SUSPEND or NOT TO SUSPEND?

The gist: suspenders may work better, but the dork factor is too high. How did an organ-squeezing belly tourniquet become part of our everyday wardrobe?
A Freakonomics radio podcast on how the belt won the war....

Exhibit B and C, too. See, he & his costume designers stuck with the suspenders. I find that very interesting.
