Mens Trouser Braces
Trouser braces, also known as men’s suspenders, have been around for centuries, yet they lost quite a bit of their popularity during the last few decades. That’s all changed, because braces are 100% hip and happening again. And of course we produced our own great range of braces that you can explore just below!
BRACES FOR MEN – WHY YOU SHOULD GET THEM?Because your pants shouldn’t be around your ankles. That’s one reason, but they’ve become quite the fashion item as well. Trouser braces were first worn in the 18th century as an undergarment, but since the 1960s have become an overgarment for fashion purposes and can be worn in a variety of social scenarios.
SUSPENDERS FOR MEN – Great ACCESSORY
Braces can be awesome. When someone walks into a room full of confidence wearing trouser braces, they’re memorable. If you can create an aura around you wearing braces, you are creating a personal brand of sorts.
BUTTONS VERSUS CLIPS
Both are fine with whatever look you’re going for. Braces with buttons tend to be cleaner and tidier and if there aren’t any buttons on your pants, you can sew them on yourself. Clips can look hip with the major downside being that they may damage the waistband of your pants over time.
TIPS FOR WEARING BRACES
Braces did have the nerdy reputation, which is totally fine. But it’s not the look everyone wants to rock. If you want the hipster look, consider these tips when buying braces.
- Matching the fabric. No clear cut rules here. But we suggest you either match the fabric of your braces matching with the rest of your outfit or choose a completely contrasting fabric. Rocking the leather braces? Then the colour should be matching with your shoes.
- An X, Y or H pattern at the back. The pattern on the back is for additional support and strength. The only reason to wear an H pattern is if you’re rocking lederhosen or fighting fires. The X and Y patterns are best for fashion purposes.
- Width of fabric. You can find fabric widths of all ranges with the safe options in the 1.25 – 1.5 inches range. If you’re looking for functional braces, you’ll want wider fabric. Less than 1.00 inch; and you’re wearing braces for trendy reasons only.
