Complete any outfit with a pair of braces
Keep your pants up in style with a pair of braces or suspenders. Choose a formal pair to wear to the office, or to add a great finish to your smart casual look. Braces fasten to your waistband and use straps that fit on your shoulders to keep them in place, meaning you are comfortable all day.
Most straps on braces are made of elastic, making them stretchy and comfortable with the perfect fit for each wearer. Find classic, vintage men's braces alongside contemporary styles for the modern man.Fastening
The most popular and commonly worn trouser braces have clip fastenings. These fasten to your waistband with a silver or gold coloured metal clip, which will secure your trousers in place. You'll need to invest in some braces with a sturdy clip if you're looking for long-lasting wear.
A more traditional design is to have a button fastening, which is made from a leather hook that loops onto a button sewn into your trousers. If you're not sure which to go for, you can always choose a combination of the two and look for braces with interchangeable clip and button fastenings, depending what you're wearing that day.Back style
Where the front straps of braces always look the same, there are two different back types that you'll find in trouser braces. X-back braces cross over your back in an X shape and fasten with four clips, two at the front and two at the back. Y-back braces, on the other hand, only have one fastening at the back, making the straps form a Y shape on your back. Your choice depends on how secure you want your braces to feel, with X-backs providing more support.Designs
What style and design you choose is up to you. Go for a black pair of braces for a classic, more formal look, or pick from a variety of different colours. You could even be bold and look for novelty braces, which are a great conversation starter at parties.
