He wore his blue American Apparel braces accessories with a black Ray Ban wayfarer glasses, white H&M cotton shirt, and blue H&M cardigan, silk, cotton jacket. Since then, Brace clothing has grown in popularity as bloggers from UK, Welwyn Garden City, and Mexico / London have discovered them. Brace clothing is generally seen in business casual, preppy, and geek style. Popular brands of Brace clothing are Wholesale-Dress, Ebay, Primark, vintage, and H&M.
