How To: Make Your Own Suspenders

Friends, the Twenty First Century is here, and belts are simply not the only option for keeping your pants up. We've re-embraced the bowtie, and goshdarnit, we gotta get the suspenders back in style. There was, of course. the brief suspender revival of the late eighties/early nineties that accompanied the horrid braided leather belt/Patrick Batemen trend (I'm looking at you, Tim Allen), but let's move forward.

The always excellent Running with Scissors offers a great step-by-step for making a pair of suspenders from scratch, including the y-shaped braces and adding the appropriately spaced buttons to your pants.Her instructions are designed for suspender-wearers of a much shorter stature than most full grown men, but the technique is completely transferable to any sized fellow.
