First of all, keep in mind that you don’t have to throw away all your belts, we still wear belts sometimes.
Suspenders (or Braces) hold the trousers up with far more grace than any belt ever could.
This is notably true if you've ever worn pants that are a little loose around the waist. Extra material bunches up under your belt, which isn't comfortable, and your trousers droop throughout the day.
They are more comfortable around the waist, as they can be looser - not relying on tension in the waistband to keep them up. And, as a result, they are more forgiving of fluctuations in weight.
Wearing suspenders you can sit, stand up, run, jump and even try for a full gainer with a half twist, and your pants never fall down.
Look more Attractive
The belt create an artificial line in the middle of your body, leading to a look that may be less than your ideal. The suspenders eliminate a horizontal line that cuts you in half visually, and create vertical lines elongating your legs and making you look a little taller and slimer.
Healthy and Sexy
A tight belt is like a tourniquet that goes around your waist. If it’s too tight, it can disrupt your circulation. Your body needs the blood to flow... Problems “Down There”? Try suspenders 😉.

And the simplest reason why Braces are so sexy is that they hold your pants up. Which means that if they’re taken off, your pants go...
A belt is basically a belt. Belts don’t really come in different styles. It’s not like you put on your party belt and then change it to your work belt. There are slight variations, but belts are basically all the same. Suspenders come in countless styles, patterns, and colors. You can even choose the attachment type. That makes them so much more fun.
Braces are usually hidden underneath a jacket (they are even considered underwear formerly), as such you have a lot of leeway in terms of color and pattern. You can theoretically let your suspenders do their own things and be just fine (if want to Coordinate them with your outfit you’ll find some tips below)
Clips or Buttons ends ?
Both are perfectly acceptable. But we’re big supporters of formal suspenders with buttons (Braid or leather ends) because they look cleaner and more refined. Suspender clips can be quirky, fun and trendy. However, clips may damage the waistband of your garments over time, so be warned.
And if you want to wear suspenders with all your pants Combination ends sounds like the best option. But never use at the same time Clips and Buttons ends, It’s redundant.
Formal suspenders to wear with tuxedos always button on, and have knitted ends (Braid ends) that are softer and less bulky than others. Braid ends style can be worn with a casual outfit too.
Why Made to measure ?
We are all human, so we have different builds, statures, heights, etc. However, in the market we can only find one size for Suspenders. We know they are adjustable, but most people have to adjust the elastic too much, the nikel adjuster can be uncomfortable if it’s too high, then wearing suspenders can be a nightmare.
Also all the excess fabric, when you sit down, loses elasticity and remains hanging, and this looks really awful.
How to measure yourself
Grab a tape measure and a pair of pants that you already own, and put said pants on. Starting at the back from the center of the waistband run the tape measure over the shoulders to the front waistband. Take the number that you got from measuring and then order from that!
If you don't have a tape measure you can order a size according to your height.
The whole manufacturing process is handmade, using high quality leather of Spanish origin and straps made to last.
Made in Barcelona (Spain) in a workshop that has been working since 1881, they are experts in their craft.
All our the leather work use a classic saddle stitch. This means that each stitch is passed through by two separate cords to prevent weakness and also keeps the leather from opening up over time.
Traditional Y-backed which have two straps that connect in the front to the ends and go over the shoulders to the back then are stitched directly to the leather cross-patch and continue down to a singular strap and connect (stitched) to the back end, creating the “Y” shape.

First choose the ends (Clips, braid, leather or Combination ends) Then the strap and finally the leather or the fabric.

If you have any questions about the options or the color do not hesitate to ask us
- Never wear suspenders and a belt together. It’s redundant and never acceptable.
- Solid suspenders are your best starting point due to their versatility.
- Patterned braces such as stripes, plaids, dots, etc. will work best with solid or discreetly patterned ties.
- You can match the leather fabric found on the leather ends of your suspenders to your shoes, in the same way you would match a belt.
- When dressing, first attach the suspenders in the back, then put the pants on, and finish by attaching the suspenders in the front.
- Opt for pants designed for suspenders, which have no belt loops, whether there are suspender buttons inside the waistband
- Some suit pants still have interior buttons meant for attaching suspenders. However, for pants without suspender buttons, you can easily sew in them yourself. Or you can hire a tailor it for a few dollars.
What width should my suspenders have?
The mid-range (with 1.38” (3,5 cm) being the most popular width). They are considered to be more conservative and popular for everyday wear, which makes them perfect for most business, fashion and casual outfits. On the other hand, thin suspenders are a great look for women.
Wear Suspenders With Belt Loops?
You honestly can’t blame a guy for wanting the option to wear belt one day and suspenders another.Trousers with both, belt loops and buttons for braces as well are perfectly acceptable.
Suspenders for women?
women wear suspenders too! Women are generally slighter in build than men, so skinny suspenders tend to be more attractive on women. Generally, suspenders are worn by women more as a fashion accessory, just simply adding them to a casual outfit for a touch of color.
Suspenders with jeans?
Suspenders can be worn with any outfit – casual to formal – jeans to suits and tuxedos. But they are usually more appropriate when you “dress up”.
