Suspenders, otherwise known as braces in the United Kingdom are straps of cloth that go over a man’s shoulder and down to the front of his trousers, where they’re clipped or buttoned to the waistband.
To this day, suspenders remain the preferred method to hold up a pair of trousers by many fine dressers.
Most suspenders join in the back in either an X-shape or a Y-shape,to keep pairs from being separated,but they can be bought as two individual straps as well.
Suspenders tend to be elasticized, either at the ends or all the way around the strap. Well fitted suspenders essentially provide a waist-shaped hanger that the trousers rest on.The neat appearance of trousers held up by suspenders is also widely recognized as a more comfortable arrangement for most men.
The suspenders can be adjusted to raise or lower the pants so that the point where the legs join is comfortably situated.
We recommend suspenders for most men,so long as they’re well fitted to hold the trousers in place and at the natural waist,without too much say in the crotch.
This remains accepted on the modern fashion scene and likely for many years to come,making it ultimately a matter of personal taste.
