Description

Description

  • Leather runner ends for attaching to buttons on trouser waistband
  • hand stitched leather fittings (or with our Boxcloth braces in fine goatskin)
  • Broad, comfortable straps 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) wide
  • Gold-coloured sliders to adjust braces for length and comfort
  • Leather reinforcements and elastic portion at rear
  • Supplied with 6 buttons to sew onto trouser waistband if necessary
  • pair of two-button fittings at front, two single button fittings at rear
  • made in England by Thurstons since 1820

 

  • Colours suitable for country wear and city wear

 

  • The length of the braces is measured from the trouser waistband at the front, over the shoulder, and down to the trouser waistband at the back. The braces can be adjusted for comfort and length using the gold-coloured metal sliders. The short elasticated portion at the back allows for some “give” when, for example, sitting down.

 

 

 

In 1820, five years before Nelsons Column was built (to celebrate his life and death on the 21st October 1805 at the battle of Trafalgar) braces and suspenders were first made and sold by Albert Thurston from his emporium at 27 Panton Street, Haymarket, London.
Thirty one years later, in 1851, the nation celebrated the Victorian era, when the Great Exhibition was held in Hyde Park. Albert Thurston received an Honourable Mention for the excellent standard of their products.

By now, Albert Thurston had become a by-word for quality in gentlemens’ accessories, and their braces and suspenders were destined to be sported by kings, princes, presidents and successful businessmen across the world over the next 2 centuries.
