Our history of leather accordion straps begins in France. Although this time in the 18ᵉ century, the first vintage hook-and-loop suspenders were little more than decorative strips of fabric attached to the buttonholes of men’s pants. However, that all changed in 1822, when a London merchant, Albert Thurston, first brought them to the public’s attention, marketing them as “brooches”. At that time, vintage accordion clip-on suspenders were exceptionally popular, because due to the loose style of men’s pants at the time, they were a functional asset for the savvy gentleman, lest his pants end up around his ankles.

While this was by no means the death of vintage leather braces, it did result in a shift in popularity towards the belt. There was, however, a major difference between the two at the time. Although belts were undeniably part of outerwear, until the 1930s vintage leather braces were still considered underwear.

Still worn as underwear, it wasn’t until the 1930s that men began to push the envelope and wear them over their shirts, finally reaching their stylistic peak as we know it today. Elegant and practical, our Modern Gentleman vintage leather braces accentuate the shape and sculpt the silhouette, styling and affirming your feminine and masculine curves. These leather accordion straps will follow you everywhere: summer or winter, they will be the essential fashion and chic accessory for the gentleman and the gentlewoman and will magnify your peaky blinders style.
