How to Wear Suspenders Video

27 Jun , 2009  

This video explains how to wear suspenders with a suit. As explained here, the pants of the suit need to have buttons fitted on the inside of the waistband to connect the suspenders to. This is the only proper way of connecting your suspenders with the pants and is in line with the suit etiquette. Belt loops should be removed when you bring your pants to a tailor to have him put the buttons in. Otherwise it looks a bit silly.. Enjoy the video on how to wear suspenders, and enjoy wearing your suspenders!

    I don’t see the necessity of this movie…
    How hard can it be to connect suspenders. If you can’t find out for yourself, your not even worthy of wearing them ;)

      Haha! Tim obviously you and I are that special breed that just know.. There are still many out there that don’t. It was my mission to educate them with the help of this video since visualization methods tend to come across more effectively :) Their are still men out there with the clip on suspenders, ruining their suits. What brand suspenders do you own? Best, Lance

    Suspenders over pleated pants with cuffs provide a great 50s retro-look. You need to remove the belt loops and sew buttons on the inside of the pants waist band. If you can find higher rise pants, the look becomes more authentic.
