Fantastic!
Simple and functional! These braces are great! As a circuit rider, I was looking for braces with great quality, but also fairly plain and understated. These are perfect! Exactly what I was looking for!! The leather straps are fantastic and the stitching is top notch! Very comfortable...No issues or complaints whatsoever!

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.

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.

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.

good braces
These are good braces. I got the shorter ones which work a bit better with high-waisted trousers. It would be ideal, however, if the Emporium carried braces/suspenders specifically designed for high-waisted trousers (e.g. with shorter runner ends etc.)

Good Supenders
I really like these suspenders. They are more authentic than the full elastic type. The wide canvas straps are sturdy and the single piece of elastic in the back makes a nice visual contrast as well as authentically giving more comfort than non-elastic suspenders. Not fully on par with other reenactment grade items but great in a pinch and I will be likely using this at battlefield reenactments.

They are great. However, I just noticed that the photo shows a red elastic forming the "trunk" of the "Y" while the suspenders that I got have a white elastic in that place (the branches of the "Y" are red as in the photo).

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Quality Braces
These are legitimate, tough, real leather braces. They are stiff brand new but a little use and even some leather treatment form them up nicely. They are unique and very stylish in addition to being "bullet-proof." I deducted a star because they very nearly didn't fit. I'm 6'3 and have them near the bottom most loops which created a hoop at the point of attachment to the button gussets which is annoying and unsightly but they are slowly stretching around to be flatter against the abdomen. If you are over 6'3 or have a long torso you might consider a different set.

The suspenders looked and felt great. It is my fault for jumping the gun and ordering them before reading everything more closely. In my black powder club, I can"t wear any thing that was invented after 1840. The elastic strip on the back had a good feeling and looked very good, but elastic was invented after 1840. Loved everything else that I ordered and plan on wearing them a lot.

These suspenders are fantastic! They fit my 5 foot 9 inch frame perfectly and the elastic has just enough give to be very comfortable for all day wear while still keeping my trousers securely in place. The satin material is shiny and smooth, giving a sleek, upper-class look that is a finishing touch on a Black Tie affair or just a casual Victorian Stroll in Saratoga Springs. I love these braces.

At the ripe young age of 42, this is honestly my first serious pair of suspenders (that weren't clip-on and mock-ups of the ones Robin Williams wore on Mork & Mindy). Combined with a proper set of trousers, I felt way too comfortable. I need more of these in my life. These are worn underneath of the waistcoat so nobody really gets to see them... except my wife as I'm taking all of the layers off. And she seems to think they look really fine on me. As far as I'm concerned, that's the final word.

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.

Not for the average man
Which is to say there for someone tall for today and very tall for Victorian times. And whats with the elastic? There suposed to be leather.

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!
