Since the arrival of my new models, many of you have asked me about the suspenders.
I have therefore decided to introduce you to our bicentenary supplier Albert Thurston, its links with the cinema as well as the few points to check before launching yourself in the "suspenders' wolrd".
Initiated or not, I hope these lines will help you to see more clearly into the wonderful world of "braces" as they call them overseas...
Launched in London in 1820, Albert Thurston created the suspenders in their current form. A notable invention in men's accessories. For nearly 200 years, the suspenders have been handcrafted in England and therefore won, in 1851, a "Honourable Mention remitted to the Hyde Park World Exhibition for product excellence.
Alike many periods, the suspenders are often used by stylists and costume designers to shape the universe of many films. Thus, many actors play a role, with suspenders from Albert Thurston. Among them: Steve Martin in "Leap of Faith", Michael Douglas in "Wall Street" or Leonardo Di Caprio in "The Great Gatsby". Gordon Gekko in the film Wall Street, played by Michael Douglas, influenced thousands of young financiers with his charisma and striped suspenders !
I know, many of you are sceptical about going the extra mile, but as Oscar Wilde " Fashion is what one wears oneself. What is unfashionable is what other people wear ".
It's time to dress for yourself.
One of the great advantages of the ssuspenders is the gain in fluidity for your silhouette.
On the contrary, belts cuts your outfit in half and presses it together.
To avoid making mistakes, check the following points :
- The strip width must be in proportional to your build.
- The matter must be coherent to the circumstances. We imagine silk for evening wear or tweed for the weekend.
- The attachment system is adaptable to your wishes. For a traditional and perfectionist approach, you can sew buttons inside your pants and use the leather system. For more facility, pliers are also provided.
- Make sure you have three-bands' straps, Y-shaped, for a better fit on the shoulder.
Our passion and love for products of excellence has led us to select our suspenders at Albert Thurston while insisting on the diversity of colours.
For the development of plain straps, we have chosen "cotton ribbon" which allows a beautiful color density while being more resistant than silk.
From red to orange, from royal to navy blue, our selection can be adapted to all occasions.
In this perspective of variety, don't hesitate to try original mises (why not with a pretty bottle green or a deep purple !).
We also offer you some models with black and brown leather fasteners, depending on the color of the shoes you will wear.
