Limited Edition Braces
from Dann Clothing
Wearing these conversational braces is a elegant manner of expressing one's dash, style, and sense of humor in your Furnishings. Many of these hand-loomed silk "Braces"--or Suspenders--- have established themselves as collectibles and wearable works of art. Pick a pair that suits your fancy...and wear them with casual, business or evening attire ......and enjoy the new dimension they bring to your life ! Limited Edition Braces are truly limited and have been known to sell out quickly. Followers of Calvin Curtis and the International Society of Brace Collectors have added to the interest.
I worked for Trafalgar for many years both in NYC as the Ghurka Natl Sales Manager and also as a Sales Rep. I remember the day Marley Hodgson, creator of Trafalgar and Ghurka, came in with loose tapestry braces in his hands and casually announced how he was working on this new Collection. Now 30+ years later....what a following of enthusiasts it has created. (And how honored I was to work so closely with such talented people !)

Braces as Men's Fashion Accessories
|Written by: Dennis Dann
Dann Men's Clothing
Braces--or Suspenders--- for Men are a fashion statement of enduring
style from another era.
Dress Novelty Braces add a little something extra to a Man's
sense of fashion and style.
Back before there were Dress Belts.......a Gentlemen wore
Braces--or Suspenders-- to hold up his pants. In today's world.....it may
still be the case but it is for Fashion rather than necessity. The selection
is extensive........Rep stripes, dots, solids, all-leather, Formal solids,
Formal patterns and weaves and the Limited Edition ones of different
patterns and motifs.
What do Dress Braces go with ? Certainly Formalwear
occasions................and Classic or Novelty braces work well for the
office or other dress occasions. Wear them proudly over a shirt for all the
world to see...........or hide them under a jacket. We carry a huge variety
on our website...even extra long for those over 6'4".......... and are
shipping them around the world. All of our Braces use only high-quality
leather as trim (and are produced by high-quality leather belt companies)
and are the English Gentlemen version with buttons. Since we are in the
Dress Fashion Brace business, we do not sell the "Suspender" with metal
clamps version, for the most part. These are considered a bit more "pedestrian", I
suppose. I prefer the "original" Brace with buttons as part of today's Fashion-Forward Accessory look that most of our customers are going for.
We find there are truly collectors out there..........some who
wear them occasionally...........some, like Broadcaster Larry King, who wear
them constantly and consider them a part of his personal style. Our
patterned Limited Edition ones are truly hard to get enough
of...........usually understated retro patterns........that sell out
quickly. Special, upscale customers understand all of this fuss. Benjamin Franklin, Napoleon, and Franklin Roosevelt all are known to have worn decorated and patterned braces.
This is not "for the minute" fashion...........but an enduring fashion trend of the ages.
