Add Suspenders to Your Business Attire

Look sharp headed into any high-powered business meeting to impress every attendee. Show everyone at the meeting that you are polished and prepared by wearing a sharp suit that says so. This includes wearing a pair of suspenders to keep your pants from bunching up in a weird way. One of the best ways to maintain a clean, polished look is to wear a pair of high-quality suspenders that keep the trousers and shirt in their proper place.

Suspenders are necessary for formal occasions, and are available in multiple colors, patterns and materials from the Suspender Store. Suspenders were the primary way of holding up pants until the 1900s, but today’s men and women often wear belts. Belts might be easier to use but don’t provide all the support that a pair of great suspenders do. Anyone with a little more girth can appreciate looking slimmer by wearing a pair of suspenders. They holds pants up around the stomach rather than keep pants below the stomach at the belt-line.

Suspenders are definitely the preferred method to hold up trousers because of their supportive technique. They can be adjusted to raise or lower the pants to a comfortable position. Larger men can drape trousers from the narrower part of their natural waist rather than belting them uncomfortably underneath the stomach.

While there are events where formal and high-quality suspenders shouldn’t be visible under the suit jacket, there are no formal belts. Wearing a belt and suspenders is considered by many to be a fashion faux pas and they should not be worn at the same time for formal events.

Suspenders add sophistication, help anyone look distinguished, and improve confidence and posture. They apply pressure to the shoulders, which causes the body to straighten. The body naturally wants to balance itself.

High-quality formal suspenders end in braided runner ends and are most suited for formal events and business meetings. They fasten to buttons located inside the waistline. Suspenders that have leather tabs are also a traditional and dressy option.  Clip-end suspenders generally connote a more casual look, however in the right materials and styles are acceptable for business and dress attire.

An average suit can be turned into a great one with the right accessories, including suspenders. Dress for a high-powered business meeting or take off the jacket for a casual day at the office.

Suspenders can be purchased from Suspender Store in an X-shape or Y-shape. Suspender Store has thousands of dress suspenders and work suspenders to choose from. French satin, satin, silk, grosgrain and hand-woven silk are available in multiple solid colors. Patterned and novelty suspenders are available, too.

Suspender Store’s beautiful hand-woven silk collection consists of Trafalgar Limited Edition suspenders that are created on a wooden loom. Each pair is made with the highest quality materials. Each design has a limited quantity, and each one is shipped with a unique collector’s card.

Replace suspenders every so often since they lose their elasticity over time, which can cause pants to sag. The Suspender Store is based near Annapolis, Md. and has been selling suspenders since 1999. The family-owned business strives to listen to its customers and provides excellent customer service. Orders are shipped quickly and efficiently.

Suspenders For All Sizes!

Suspenders are needed in all sizes to suit every need on the planet, and Suspender Store knows how to deliver so that you always look your best.

Suspender Store has big and tall sizes, sizes for infants and toddlers, and hundreds of styles to accommodate every demand. High-quality business suspenders and casual styles are available to keep you looking sharp, and novelty patterns help show your fun side. There are so many suspenders to choose from that it’s fun browsing through the designs and brainstorming how and where to wear each one.

Big and tall suspenders are for anyone who is taller than 6 feet, 4 inches tall or shorter folks with broader girth. Suspender Store has a great selection of styles, including 60-inch-long suspenders that are 2 inches wide, and some that are airport-friendly to help passengers travel with ease.

Formal suspenders should be worn beneath a suit jacket or tuxedo and fastened with buttons on the inside of the waistline. Suspenders worn in a casual way can clip onto the pants or attach to belt loops. Heavy-duty work suspenders have reinforced straps and strong clips that are designed to hold up heavy work pants without losing any tools at the worksite. They also feature padded support pads at the chest and shoulders that are adjustable to accommodate the needs of hard-working people every day.

All infant and toddler suspenders are adorable. Suspender Store sells washable suspenders that are created with the same high-quality materials as adult suspenders. There’s nothing better than seeing young children wear suspenders at a wedding, family reunion or for a family photo. They are available in many solid colors as well as patterns like rainbow stripes, checkers, animal cartoons, holidays, glitter and more. Convenient silver clips are easy to put in place and remove at the end of the day.

To measure for children’s suspenders, measure the distance from the back of the waistline to the front, by measuring diagonally over the shoulder.

Children who lose mittens during the cold winter months can benefit from washable mitten clips that connect coat sleeves to mittens. One-piece mitten clips are called snoggles and allow mittens to be clipped together with one large band that slides through both arm sleeves. Eliminate the hassle of searching for a missing glove or buying multiple pairs in one season by purchasing one of these practical products.

Suspenders for women look great with dress pants and a button-down shirt. The Suspender Store offers slimmer-looking suspenders that are 1-inch, ¾-inch or ½-inch wide and are less bulky on smaller frames. In comparison, the standard suspender width on a man’s design is 1.5-inches.

Women can attach suspenders to a pair of rugged jeans and wear a T-shirt underneath to create a casual look. They can be attached to shorts or a skirt, too.

Although suspenders have traditionally been worn by men in business or formal settings, women are finding wonderful ways to incorporate the design into their wardrobe, both at the office and in the home. There are so many designs to choose from, it’s difficult not to think of different ways to wear them!

How to Accessorize Your Suspenders

Add a stylish and fashionable look to a pair of suspenders with the right accessories, no matter what their color or pattern. A stylish bowtie paired with suspenders and worn over a button-down shirt or cardigan is a great look for a casual gathering or artistic wedding. Add sneakers, boots, a fedora or flat cap to add another layer of accessories to any outfit and make it unique.

Wear a belt with suspenders and create a little extra support underneath the waistline before heading outside to do a bit of work. There are multiple ways to wear (and not wear) suspenders, and we’re going to touch on some of them here:

Traditional ties are great when paired with suspenders at formal and casual events. Wear a high-quality tie into an important business meeting or formal event to show you’re polished and prepared. A great  pair of suspenders will hold up your trousers the way they were designed so they stay in place and don’t sag or have distracting bunches.

Every suspender size is available from Suspender Store, including big and tall sizes for anyone more than six feet, four inches tall, infant and toddler sizes, sizes for women, and traditional sizes for men. Dress kids for success with an adorable bowtie and matching suspenders for a wedding, family reunion or family photo.

Suspenders and belts can hold up pants, but do so in very different ways. Suspenders allow the pants to drape around the wearer while belts bunch pants together at the waistline. Both shouldn’t be worn together at formal events, but some people enjoy wearing them casually to provide additional support underneath the stomach. Suspender Store sells suspender fasteners that slip right onto the belt, and some fasten directly onto the belt loops.

Suspenders are fairly easy to put on, even for the new user who is unsure about how to wear suspenders. Suspenders are with a Y-back or X-back style. As the name implies, Y-back suspenders create a “Y” on the back and X-back suspenders create an “X.” X-back suspenders provide more support because they are spaced wider apart.

Suspenders that fasten to trousers with button fasteners are best for formal events and professional settings, but metal clips or clamps are available for more casual affairs.

Wear suspenders to add a stylish look to any wardrobe. Connect them to a skirt or pair of pants and pair them with a nice shirt and shoes. Create a punk or hipster look with skinny suspenders, a patterned button-down shirt, jeans and sneakers. Anyone looking to create a style from a bygone era can wear suspenders with tweed trousers or dark jeans, a button-down shirt, and accessories like a driving or flat cap, bowtie, fedora or trench coat. Organize an artistic wedding with handsome groomsmen who wear suspenders and accessories that are reminiscent of a bygone era, yet modern in design.


Wedding Suspenders – Great Groomsmen Looks for Your Special Day!

Turn a wedding into a stunning evening no one will forget with a striking wardrobe that has artistic flair and a bit of pageantry. One of the latest wedding fashion trends is suspenders that groomsmen wear over a button-down shirt, without a jacket.

Turn any ordinary traditional wedding into something artistic and extraordinary by combining suspenders with other wardrobe accessories, like a flat cap, fedora, bowtie, cardigan, sneakers or boots.

Suspenders have traditionally been worn underneath the jacket at formal events, including weddings. Hipsters and millennials are changing the face and look of modern weddings by bringing back accessories from yesteryear, but are using them in a new way.

The image of a newspaper boy in the 1920s wearing a flat cap, suspenders and a white shirt has been reinvented and transformed into groomsmen attire. Choose a creative pair of suspenders from Suspender Store that accents the button-down shirt, which has hundreds of options to choose from. Suspender Store even has bowties for weddings.

Any couple who is planning a casual farm wedding or a rock ‘n’ roll theme will appreciate adding suspenders to the groomsmen’s wardrobe.

Suspenders and bowties from Suspender Store come in every size imaginable, including big and tall, toddler and infant. There are traditional 1.5-inch wide suspenders and a slimmer 1-inch, ¾-inch or ½-inch width for anyone who has a smaller frame.

There are more than  1,500 styles and designs to choose from at Suspender Store. These suspenders are not just novelty items, but are an elegant way of jazzing up any wedding with high-quality designs and materials. Bold solid colors and designs in silk and French satin are available. Ribbed suspenders have fabric button attachments and create a clean, tailored look. A special collection of Trafalgar Limited Edition suspenders are hand-woven on a wooden loom, and arrive with a collector’s card as a keepsake. Each design is researched and made with the highest quality materials, and created in a limited quantity.

For any bride or groom searching for an elegant but artistic wedding, suspenders are definitely a fun option. Anyone who is searching for suspenders for a more traditional wedding that includes a jacket can find high-quality products at Suspender Store, too.

High-quality suspenders are made of silk and attach to buttons on the inside of the waistband. Casual suspenders are clipped to the waistband with metal clasps. Large men can wear a pair of suspenders and help trousers stay in their proper place and prevent them from bunching up. Suspenders support the pants by fully enveloping larger waists, unlike belts which only support the bottom of the stomach. Suspenders can create a slimming look to an otherwise portly frame.

Suspender Store is a family-owned business which has an eye for detail. Based near Annapolis, Md., the store has been selling suspenders online since 1999.

A fun and practical accessory to add to a Halloween costume is a pair of suspenders that won’t empty the wallet. Get a head-start on this year’s Halloween celebration by creating your costume early and miss the crowds that flock to Halloween stores.

Dress in black with sneakers and a pair of novelty suspenders that have a Halloween theme, instantly transforming you into a mime.

Be festive and stylish this Halloween season by wearing suspenders that hold up a costume so you don’t have to keep readjusting it. Suspenders were originally designed to hold up pants before the use of belts were practical, so it’s traditional. Hold up a piece of cardboard that represents a psychic’s crystal ball and table.

Make a Statement With Your Suspenders

There’s no denying that suspenders make a style statement. They’re retro-cool, edgy, and still just unique enough in today’s fashion landscape to make you stand out. But did you know that the way you wear your suspenders could determine the type of statement you make?

To Belt … Or Not to Belt?

This is one of the most controversial issues – OK, the only controversial issue – in the wonderful world of suspenders. Does wearing suspenders mean you should forgo your usual belt? Not necessarily.

By combining the two, you’ll show the world that you’re not afraid to mix accessories for the sake of fashion (and function, too). However, the majority of stylists do recommend letting your suspenders stand on their own.

Another daring move is to go to the other extreme – lose that belt and the belt loops that go with it! If you plan on wearing your suspenders religiously, simply remove the belt loops from your pants. You’ll be amazed at how clean and stylish you look, and you’ll be sure to receive compliments on your GQ-esque fashion choice.

To Clip … Or Not to Clip?

Ah, another age-old question. Do you wear clip-on or button-on suspenders? Well, the answer depends on the outfit and the occasion.

Clip-on suspenders are great for casual wear. They’re easy to put on and take off, and they work with nearly every type of pant. When you wear clip suspenders, you give off an easygoing, cool vibe. However, for any formal event requiring a suit, clip suspenders may make the wrong style statement. You’ll look clueless about style, and the fine teeth in the clips could very likely ruin your pants.

In this situation, button-style suspenders are the only way to go. You’ll look sophisticated, elegant, and very put together.

To Suspender … Or Not to Suspender?

This one’s a trick question. Obviously, we at SuspenderStore think suspenders are the cat’s pajamas. Customers wear our suspenders in boardrooms and restaurants, on stages, at weddings, at school, and in plain old everyday situations – and we think you should, too.

No matter what style statement you want to make, SuspenderStore has just the right pair of suspenders for you.

What Your Suspenders Say About You

In today’s world, suspenders aren’t just for holding up your pants. Since they were invented nearly 200 years ago, suspenders have evolved into a fashion accessory for men, women and even kids. There are so many different ways to wear them – so how do you choose a style? Well, that depends on the image you want to project. Here’s what your suspenders say about you.

You’re Fashion Forward

Suspenders can take an everyday outfit from casual to cool. Clip basic skinny suspenders onto your blue jeans and you’ll show the world you’re riding the cutting edge of fashion.

Just make sure the color of your suspenders either matches or complements your outfit. For example, if you’re wearing both leather suspenders and leather shoes, make sure the two match. Wearing suspenders that clash with your shoes, shirt or pants probably won’t make the style statement you’re looking for.

You’re Unique

A pair of brightly colored or patterned suspenders says you’re unique. You like to stand out, even in everyday situations. At SuspenderStore, we offer novelty suspenders for every interest, including animals, camouflage, and even Superman. Our fun patterns include argyle, striped, plaid and polka dots. If you want to stand our even more, accessorize your suspenders with a skinny tie or 1940s pork pie hat.

You’re Smart

When you wear suspenders with a formal suit, you look smart and classy. This look is perfect for work occasions and can make for an especially memorable impression during job interviews. Need a little more convincing? As you may recall, Daniel Craig donned a smart pair of skinny white suspenders in the last James Bond movie. Who doesn’t want to look like 007?

You’re Practical

Anyone who works with his hands knows that suspenders can be a lifesaver. For the manual laborer who needs to keep his pants up, suspenders say you’re practical. Armed with a pair of thick suspenders, you know that nothing can stop you from getting the job done.

SuspenderStore’s work suspenders won’t stretch under the weight of a heavy tool belt. We even offer side-clip suspenders that won’t dig into your back for long-haul truckers, or support suspenders with extra shoulder padding.

So who do you want to be? Fashion forward, unique, smart, practical? With the right pair of suspenders, you can be all of the above!

Suspenders, Not Just to Hold Up Your Pants

Albert Thurston invented suspenders in 1820 as a way to hold up men’s trousers (the high cut of pants at the time made wearing belts difficult). Since then, suspenders have gone in and out of fashion. But in recent years, they’ve come back in a big way thanks to period dramas and more than a few trend-setting celebrities.

Of course, suspenders aren’t just for holding up your pants anymore. They’ve evolved into a timeless style accessory for both men and women and have several other practical benefits.

Style Distinguishers

It’s undeniable that suspenders can really make you stand out. Why else would so many famous people choose to wear them to big events? The suspender look is bold yet sophisticated, classic yet hip, and unquestionably suave. Metal clip-on suspenders are ideal for everyday wear, while traditional button suspenders complement formalwear especially well.

Here at SuspenderStore, we even offer special clip suspenders for airport travel. These affordable suspenders don’t contain any metal, so you’ll breeze through security checkpoints without sacrificing your style.

Reliable Supporters

If you need suspenders solely for their original purpose – support – SuspenderStore has you covered. For anyone who does manual labor, we offer a selection of work suspenders featuring thick straps and reinforced materials to hold up heavy pants and tool belts.

Anyone with a little extra weight may also appreciate our versatile selection of suspenders. No one likes the look of their stomach hanging over their belt. With suspenders, your pants will stay at your natural waist where they belong.

If you have the opposite problem and want to keep your pants from falling down, suspenders can help there, as well. You’ll avoid cinching your pants with a belt and keep your shirt from bunching up. Whether you gain or lose weight, your suspenders will grow with you, especially if you choose an elastic style.

Posture Strengtheners

Did you know that suspenders could actually improve your posture? Unlike belts, they won’t dig into your skin, and you can adjust them to fit just right using convenient adjustment clips. When fitted properly, suspenders frame your shoulders and torso.

Try them on and you’ll quickly realize that you’re standing up straighter! Best of all, a typical pair of suspenders can last you for years – a lot longer than the shelf life of most belts.

Make Suspenders Part of Your Everyday Wardrobe

Ready to add some style to your everyday wear? Try suspenders, and you won’t even have to overhaul your wardrobe. At SuspenderStore, we have many versatile options to go with the clothes you already love.

While some suspender materials are dressy by nature, most elastic suspenders can be either formal or casual depending on what you wear with them. Here’s how you can make suspenders part of your look.

Clip Suspenders

Clip-on suspenders are popular for everyday wear because they’re so easy to put on and take off. Whether you prefer subtle, solid-colored suspenders or Western-inspired leather options, SuspenderStore offers clip-on suspenders in just about every style imaginable. Ranging from one-half to two inches wide, these feature durable silver metal clasps at the end of the straps, so you can secure them to the waistband of your pants without any hassle.

For casual wear, we carry classic two-inch wide suspenders in 13 solid colors and two striped patterns. For a more upscale look, choose our 1.5-inch-wide suspenders, available in 13 solids as well as stripes, dots, checks and plaids.

Button Suspenders

Button-on suspenders are definitely the more formal of the two attachment styles. Timeless and classy, these suspenders look good with anything. Note that they do require more legwork than clip-on suspenders, as you’ll have to attach buttons to your pants. This is easy to do on your own using our simple instructions, or you can take your pants to a tailor.

Button suspenders come in many different styles, though you’re more likely to find them in upscale fabrics like silk. We carry them in both 1.25-inch and 1.5-inch widths and in many colors and patterns, including striped, polka dot and checkered motifs.

Convertible Suspenders

Can’t decide what type of suspenders to buy? No problem! SuspenderStore also offers convertible suspenders. These combination suspenders come with both clip and button attachments, making it easy to swap back and forth between looks. Just note that this will limit your fabric and color selection.

With so many selections, it’s easy to find a few pairs of suspenders that will look tailor-made for your wardrobe. Ready. Set. Shop!

Bring Suspenders Back to School with You

Suspenders aren’t just for men in suits anymore. In the nearly 200 years since they were invented, suspenders have evolved into a wardrobe accessory that anyone can wear — and they’ve become especially popular among today’s youth. Even celebrities like a midriff-baring Miley Cyrus have been spotted wearing suspenders on the red carpet.

Want to rock this fashion accessory like Miley? SuspenderStore’s selection makes it easy to create a stylish ensemble no matter the time or place. Whether your personal style is prim and proper or punk rock, we’ll help you find the perfect pair of suspenders to bring back to school with you this fall.

High school and college students will look old-school cool in our skinny suspenders, which measure no more than an inch wide. For a stylish-yet-understated look, choose a solid color like black, gray or navy blue. If you want to have a little more fun, opt for a print or pattern.
