Most men first attach their braces to the back of their trousers, put them on, and then attach the men’s braces to the front of their trousers. You can then easily adjust the size with the help of the sliding clamps. Read more about attaching men’s braces here.

Until the beginning of the 20th century it was not intended that the men’s braces were visible, they were more or less regarded as 'underwear'. With the arrival of the belt, the men’s braces are no longer seen as an essential part of the male outfit but are worn as a fashionable accessory. It feels great to leave your jacket at home and wear your men’s braces on a shirt, possibly combined with a bow tie or tie.

Unlike women, men have few accessories at their disposal to enhance their outfit, so make the most of men’s braces!

Excellent tie, silky soft material and extra long as advertised. Allows taller folk to tie knots that use more length.
Thrilled with the tie….absolutely perfect colour and quality. Service and delivery were without fault. About to order two further ties!

Excellent service and quality. I ordered replacement leather ends for braces. They arrived within a few days and I am very satisfied.
Sometimes the quality of on line purchases is not what is claimed. This company seems to be honest and what it says is what you get.

I attend many motorsport awards yearly and wanted some braces that were in fitting. These were just prefect.
Quality is of the highest standard and beautifully made. Very pleased with my purchase.
Order process was simple, delivered in a timely manner and communication was good.
I’d highly recommended and would definitely order again in future.

I ordered a pair of braces for my husband as part of his Christmas gift. He was over the moon with them and they are of really lovely quality. The colours in the two-tone set I chose go really well together and he\'s already worn them multiple times over the holidays. Delivery was also very quick!
