Y-not?
First time ever wearing proper braces and a positive experience! Keep pants in place and quite comfortable.

I have worn similar ones before, these appear to be well made however, the pants that came with the tuxedo with tails ordered on this site came with belt loops, an unexpected and pleasant surprise. I used a belt instead.....

This is a little unusual than regular suspenders with the y back. But actually is pretty comfortable.

Can't believe it
I've never owned a pair of suspenders before. Frankly, I don't know how I went so long without them. I have a bit of a belly, so belts are uncomfortable and only for special occasions. I bought them to hold up my Reilly Plaid Trousers. They are a comfortable alternative to a belt. They have a wide range of adjustability, and I don't feel like I'm getting squeezed. They fit perfectly on the buttons sewed in to the trousers. The clasps are tight, so I don't have to worry about them migrating throughout the evening.

Excellent
All the attention to detail, the arm bands, the hat, the tie, and the suspenders, created a perfect historical outfit.

Too Much Elasric
I bought these awhile ago b/c I was looking for black suspenders to go with outfit. They look nice but I found after doing quite a bit of walking my tucked in shirt keeps untucked. To get to the point the elastic y braces where pulling out my shirt and pushing down my drawers. I could be a bit bouncier than most while walking but that's my review on the particular braces. If maybe there was just elastic on back not front they would work better.

Braces
I am a little reserved with these braces: the fasteners are fragile (I was forced to reinforce one of them with leather because it had torn at first use) and the adjusting flows have to be placed really very high on the torso, almost at the edge of the clavicles.

These suspenders are strong yet - not too wide - the leather is supple yet strong. Generally speaking they're the quality one would have enjoyed 20 years ago so to find them is a treasure. Very satisfied.

Excellent Quality Suspenders
Excellent and very comfortable suspenders. I have worn suspenders all my life, and about gave up on the elastic ones years ago, because they were poor quality and stretched out too quickly. Went to leather braces, but now that I am older, leather hurts my shoulders. But these excellent quality suspenders are the true meaning of "Braces", and I will be buying several different colors if you make them. Excellent braces!

nice braces
These braces fit perfect with the trousers, and look great. Only issue is that the buckles are rather high on the chest, too close to the collarbone for my liking.

braces are great...
...but I do wish all (any?) manufacturer of braces provided either really sturdy leather button straps (since they can tear, especially on the steel buttons that H.E. trousers use) or an extra set of them, or a way to buy them. These braces are simple, functional and otherwise extremely well-made. I'd love to know how to get more of those darn straps, however...

Too Long
I love the leather suspenders I purchased. I felt the price was a bit high, but I decided to purchase them instead of spending a lot of time looking for them elsewhere. I got both black, and brown. They fit well, but I needed to add an extra hole on the brown ones (I am 5' 9" tall, and a simple leather punch fixed the issue quickly), the black fit perfectly. It appears that the suspenders came from 2 different makers, I would like to see Historical Emporium offer the brown suspenders from the same maker as the black ones. The quality seems good, and they are comfortable. I look forward to many more purchases from Historical Emporium!

Suspenders
The actual suspenders are great -I was highly disappointed that only the tabs and back piece are actually leather - and the straps are fake - not what one is led to believe when reading the description - therefore not thrilled Editor's note - The suspenders are made of a thin cut of leather for comfort.

Suspenders (Braces)
Quality might be an issue, so carefully examine yours and confirm that the leather has no thin spots that might tear after a few months of use. I found that to be a problem with one of two pairs I've owned. To WE's credit they upheld their Quality Guarantee even though the return period had expired.

Not happy with these. They are too big. They will require having holes punched to shorten. More expense! They need to be offered in smaller sizes. I am not a small guy over 6' tall and still to long. Not a good purchase!

Well Made But...
Great suspenders. These are well made and look great. However based on the recommended measurements I ordered XL. They are Way too large. Luckily I am a leather worker so I can make them fit. If you are over 6' or a bigger boy they would probably work quite well.

Not So Snappy, Snappy Looking Suspenders
These, along with the Black Canvas Trousers , were only my second purchase from the Historical Emporium and I am very pleased with the product. I admit that I enjoy them more than the trousers actually. They immediately give the impression of a product that will last forever. Mostly leather, with the lower back portion being thick elastic, they give the wearer a sense of antiquated clothing so strong that they feel so fine walking around in them. Everyone who has seen them on me was stunned by the craftsmanship. I know I was. The brass buckles are what got me the most. The only problem I encountered was expected. They ended up being to large for me, so I had to poke more holes intothem to get a perfect fit, nothing major. Though they arent so snappy in ability, they makeup for it many times over in snappy appearance. I am looking forward to my next purchase.

These suspenders are great. I have already received many compliments on them. I have the black set too but these brown really have a vintage vibe to them. In the hand, they don't look special but paired with some vintage pants and shirt and they look great!

Quality but plenty big
My son is 6'2" and wears a pretty long suspender, but we had to drill new holes in these and are contemplating cutting a bit of the strap off. These are *plenty* long and I have little doubt they would fit a very large man with a very large belly. Small or skinny guys may have to do some adjusting.

Fantastic
These don't come with clips. You need to have pants with buttons on them, either already on them from the manufacturer, or do like I do and just grab a few buttons and a needle and thread. They are good quality, comfortable, and look manly. I got them in black, and might get a second pair in brown, just to mix things up a little. I like to wear them with jeans, they look a little rustic, but with a touch of class. I do enjoy getting dressed up, it's great to look and feel your best, but I also know that daily life and everyday function are necessary. If you buy all this stuff just to keep in a drawer or the back of your closet, what is the point of it? I am glad to have these as part of my wardrobe.

Great quality braces
The quality of the leather and the metal buckles is great. It's a robust design suitable for actual work use and not just costuming. A lot of people noted that they are longer than expected; At 6'1", the fit me fine with using the last hole in the leather (smallest length). A shorter or thinner person might find them too long.

nice but with some issues
I love the leather and buckle look of these! Unfortunately they were too big - one size does not fit all, and they are not really adjustable beyond the few buckle holes - I'm going to take about 2" off the elastic part in the back to make them work and possibly shorten the leather ends by an inch or two just to avoid lots of extra "tongue" Also one side had more holes than the other, so if you're not careful, you can adjust them lopsided. (my guy wears a Medium size in everything, so he's not exceptionally tiny or thin) Still, it's worth the few adjustments for the classier look of the leather!

Could be better
These are a hard-to-come by item here in America, so I'm happy to find them at a reasonable price. However, with the Ludlow trousers I bought with them, the straps are way too long. Sure, there are buckles in the front, but that doesn't help that the back strap between the Y and the waist is two inches longer than any normal man-sized person. I'm 6'2" tall, it should fit me perfectly, if not be a little on the short side. I could shorten the buckles in the front and even punch more holes, but the Y would be up against my neck.
