The Austrian leather field suspenders are used military surplus items in good condition. Each pair of suspenders is constructed from high quality leather and includes steel buckles that provide a secure attachment. They are only available in one size, as the straps are adjustable and subscribe to a “one size fits most” approach. The shoulder straps also utilize a soft padding to prevent the tough leather from becoming too uncomfortable.
Though these suspenders were designed originally to be worn with WWII era Austrian military uniforms, a little polish and elbow grease can buff these into a stylish fashion accessory. They will also make a fine addition to any military buff’s WWII collection.
Consider the Austrian leather field suspenders for:
- Stage and theater production
- Movie production
- Dress clothing
Suspenders, known by some as braces, are traditionally used in place of a belt to hold up pants. Invented in 1822 by Albert Thurston, modern suspenders were widely used until they were characterized as underwear – making public displays of suspenders improper. That didn’t stop Larry King, however, who is perhaps the world’s foremost suspenders enthusiast.
They have also traditionally been a large part of skinhead fashion.
