Although there has been similar trouser supports during the last 300 years, it is accepted that the modern style of trouser braces were first invented in 1820 by Albert Thurston. They were very popular due to the high cut of trousers that made belts impractical. Since the nineteenth century they have come in and out of fashion alternating with belts and elasticated waists. Today, they are generally seen as part of formal dress and as such often accompany ties or bow ties.
Our range includes silk and elasticated fabric braces, many of which are a good match to our bows and ties. All our braces are at least 35mm wide (with exception of boys braces and "skinny braces") and most of our men's braces have four legs for firmer grip ("X-Style"). Bulk orders are available, please contact us for further details.
