The East German Army Suspenders are a pair of vintage suspenders with cold war style. These suspenders would have been issued to one of the largest military forces of Europe, the East German Army who stood at the front lines of the Cold War. The look and feel of these suspenders is one that will appeal to anyone who likes vintage style, military fashion, or just enjoys a pair of suspenders.
The attachment points of these suspenders have a metal adjustment clasp that will allow you to adjust for size. With the material being made from an elastic fabric, you will be able to wear these suspenders and have them fit crisp and tight. The ends of each suspender leg have leather attachment straps that are designed to be used with either suspender buttons or belt loops for a universally compatible fit.

First thing that must be noted in regards to these suspenders: These are designed to utilize metal loops sewn into trousers as attachment points, a hallmark of East German Military Gear. The pair I received is an immaculate New Old Stock, which even has a faint blue stamped issuance code present, something I have not run across in other examples. These suspenders work with all forms of East German trousers, and are a must-have if you purchase any such pieces, as most surplus dealers only have the trousers, and not these increasingly hard-to-find suspenders!
