Suspenders can be worn to add a little sophistication to the look and a little old-school flair. Suspenders are originated over 300 years ago , they are simply fabric worn over your shoulders to help hold your pants up from the front to back without a belt. Unlike a belt , which cinches your pants tight around yours waist to keep trousers from falling, They merely hold them in place. It takes confidence to wear them in public but once you feel comfortable with them you will get a lot of compliments . I feel very secure wearing them and enjoy the freedom at the waist from from my clip-on suspenders.
