Complete your Stylish Look with Black Leather Suspenders

What do you want to complete your style?  The traditional man’s outfit doesn’t always leave much room for self-expression, and if you are trying hard to stand out from the crowd it can be difficult to know what accessory will make you look good without being too garish. One reliable staple of the man’s wardrobe that is often overlooked is a set of suspenders. Sometimes known as braces, these can catch the eye and look stylish, but don’t look out of place in a boardroom setting. With classic black leather suspenders, you can make people take notice of you and your style.


Why wear suspenders?

You might have worn a belt all your life, but a few generations ago everyone would be wearing suspenders. The belt was an accessory, often worn as decorations in the Military and by the super-wealthy, but not even recognized by the majority of working men. Their traditional outfit was the suspenders, and if you want to go back to the roots of style and stand out from everyone else, then a pair of suspenders is the right way to go. There are several different styles that you can use to make the most out of these timeless suspenders. For example, you should choose suspenders that naturally sit around your waist, so that you can hang the trousers from them evenly.


The right way to wear suspenders

If you want to make sure that you look good in your new pair of braces, then you need to make sure that you look the part. Whatever you do, never combine suspenders with a belt, and don’t put your brace ends through the loops on the waistband. Make sure that you secure them tightly to your trousers, so that you have a clean, secure look rather than appearing as though your trousers are being hitched up around your ears. You can prevent your trousers from looking too loose by buying a pair of trousers designed to be worn with suspenders.

Keep your suspenders adjustable and out of sight

Experts recommend that you buy suspenders which can be adjusted, so that you can ask them to fit the natural shape of your body. This makes them much easier to wear on a day-to-day basis. It is also part of the principle of wearing these suspenders that you keep them hidden, perhaps under a coat or jacket. Until the middle of the last century, it was considered to be very inappropriate to reveal your suspenders, and in 1938 residents of a Long Island town first banned visible suspenders and then overturned the rule, and many people still feel that the fashion for showing off suspenders, for example by Larry King, is one to be avoided.


Keeping your suspenders stylish

There are several rules about the best way to wear your suspenders, including making sure that you match the color of your braces to that of your shoes or watch. Some people go further and match them with cases or bags, but it is hard to make this work when you are in an office all day or when your bag is not close by. Instead, you can make your suspenders look stylish by matching them to leather shoes or watch straps. An expensive but inclusive pair of suspenders that perfectly match your stylish watch can make your whole outfit look fantastic and will tie your suit together. Of course, if you do choose leather, then you will need to select your shirt and trouser patterns carefully to avoid clashes that will make your outfit more hair curling than eye-catching.


Getting the best out of your black leather suspenders

If you choose leather then you need to make sure that you take care of it properly. Just as you wouldn’t wear a scuffed pair of shoes to the office, so you need to keep your suspenders in tiptop condition. You want to treat your leather braces as you would the interior of a sports car, taking the time to wax the surface and use treatments to prevent it from retaining odors. Taking good care of your suspenders will prolong their life, and make sure that they look good for longer.
