Suspension Provides Serenity
By Opa Wayne
Over the last six months I have experienced joy and agony. I found myself losing a little weight which gave me joy. However, my favorite comfortable trousers kept slipping down. The agony of slipping pants: slip when I rise from a chair; slip when I walk across a room; slip when I exercise; and slip when I breathe out. A person has to breathe! I became bored with constantly pulling up my pants so I decided I needed some suspenders.
I have a attitude problem concerning suspenders. First, guys in my generation have claimed that one doesn't wear suspenders except with formal wear. A belt is what a man wears - especially if he can get a fancy belt buckle. I did check and John Wayne wore both suspenders and a belt with his cavalry uniform in "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon", so it is ok.
Second, I always get ones with weak clips. Weak clips lead to a bad fit and pants that slip. So, I want strong clips.
The Custom Leathercraft Suspenders meet the need. First they have great, heavy duty clips - clips that only come off on purpose, not by accident. And, of course, you do not need a belt. Finally, a real bonus is that they are stylish. Red, while, and blue "go" with anything.
I highly recommend these suspenders.

They Work. Feel Heavy Duty
No doubt the strongest suspenders I ever got. I just go so sick of WalMart cheapies. These feel stronger and so far no problem with buckles snapping open or anything. They work. I've started to notice how in old movies folks wore suspenders but they appear to have buttons or something on the slacks so they grip well -- good idea. Um...also adds a surprising touch of patriotism to your day; you forget about it but suddenly someone will notice (they are normally 'hidden,' under my shirt, or under sweatshirt. So, Yes, you can say with pride: "I'm An American, don't @#$#@# with me." (ha ha). Joke. (We should be considerate and respectful to all...um, unless they don't like your suspenders).

ok functionally - terrible packaging
By Pink Panther
I couldn't believe the amount of heavy duty stapling and the little plastic thingies stuck through the material in at least two places. It was like trying to break in to Fort Knox. In the process of trying to remove some of the heavy duty long staples, one cannot help unraveling some of the suspender material. Why on earth they package it like this is beyond my imagination. But past all that, they seem fine as functioing suspenders - at least they keep my jeans up!
