Vintage Sprung Link Traditional Armbands/Sleeve Garters. Metal. 3 Colours available

‹Return to Previous Page


These rarely seen items are an absolute must to hold ones shirtsleeves in the exact position required to reveal just the right amount of shirt cuff and yet keeping your shirtsleeves in exactly the right place.

As you will be aware a Gentleman doesn’t wear ostentatious jewellery or flamboyant items of attire, however certain accessories have always been essential to maintain the perfect image. Armbands compliment your shirt, and of course keep your sleeves in that all too important position.

Positioned correctly at the elbow it is easy to adjust the sleeve length when dressing and to not have to worry again all day…

Some details from the web:

Circa: 1930’s
