The Tie Bar Gets Into the Suspenders Game
- Najib Benouar
We come bearing great news for the trads: the stalwarts of reasonably priced neckwear at The Tie Bar have just launched a line of suspenders—known as braces, to the real heads.
Sure, suspenders have been living a pretty quiet existence since their last heyday in the Gekko era, but every so often, in the more tweedy corners of menswear, you’ll still find trousers with a few well-placed buttons where belt loops would be.
And if you happen to have a pair, here’s your chance to strap in. Or if you’re just considering dipping your toes, they’ve got a few clip-on options, too—which are a bit more acceptable than a clip-on would be in, say, the bow tie world.
