1860s style suspenders - perfect for Civil War era and later impressions. These suspenders or galluses, as they were often called, are perfect for the serious reenactor or history buff.

Made from 1 3/8-inch wide cotton webbing featuring a sewn X-back, replica metal size adjusters, and finished with long front leather button tabs. The 51" length will fit most people.

These are reproduction suspenders and will look different than modern suspenders.

The front metal adjusters are metal prongs that pierce the fabric instead of the common buckle or friction sliders. This means there will be some damage to the material of the suspender strap each time they are used. In addition, due to the type of adjuster the front canvas straps are made long to fit most people. In some cases, they will be longer than needed. In the 19th century, the excess length was commonly tied or tucked behind the straps.

Made from cotton webbing and vegetable tanned leather. Made in the USA.

Our 1860s Cotton X-Back Suspenders are offered in several colors.

Standard Suspenders - Sizing Notes
These suspenders are adjustable from 36" to 51".
They are made to fit men taller than 5'9", with typical to large builds. If you are shorter than 5'10 with a slim build, you might prefer the fit of our short suspenders, which are 4" shorter.
Measuring for suspenders: To measure for suspenders, take a fabric tape measure and measure from the front suspender button, over the shoulder, to the rear button.

Material is thin
I like the leather tabs and hardwear, but the "thin weave" is indeed thin. Strong enough to hold up under work conditions, but it tends to roll up, especially when donning and taking off. Other than that, they are well made. I did cut the front leather tabs shorter.

Poor quality. Spikes on the adjusters too sharp. Leather button attachments way too hard to fasten to buttons. After one event were disposed of. Pick something better.

Stiff leather
The leather was quite stiff and difficult to put onto trousers, but I'm sure over time it should soften.
