The real history of suspenders

With the release of 1980s Wall Street, Wall Street saw the imitation of his clothes, and with the spread of print media, a quarter of the world's financial capital tycoons wanted to be like their heroes. And just under the power suit, there is always a harness that makes the tycoons' suit trouser line as rigid and straight as the outline of their faces.

Baps were first born in France, when people wore high-waisted pants that wrapped around their entire abdomen. The strap was born to fix the pants of the time and was a functional necessity for everyday clothing, known as braces in the British and suspenders in the Americans. The cause of film and television publicity, as if early Europe and the European gentlemen liked to use it.

The real history of using braces dates back to 1820, when Albert Thurston in Leicestershire, England, invented a trouser suit accessory that perfectly solved the problem of men's trouser descent, helping gentlemen fix the waist to the ideal waist. Albert Thurston was also the earliest professional harness manufacturer and the pioneer of the Y-shaped harness. Since then, harnesses have gradually become popular in upper society, and the habit of using harnesses has continued to this day.

The strap was originally invented to solve the problem of men's trouser slips. The strap can also play a good role in keeping the pants in an ideal position, ensuring the trouser line is stylish, and making the pants look straight and upright. But for a more fitting suit waist, there is no need to use enders.

Compared to the belt, the strap is obviously more suitable for men with fat or a belly because the strap is "carrying the pants on the shoulder", while the belt is "holding the waist of the pants", which is harder for men with a more obvious belly. Because the strap is to transfer the pressure to the shoulder, it solves the problems caused by the temporary change in the pants allowance and waist circumference before and after the gentlemen and avoids bondage to the waist.

But for a long time, people did not seem to use the practicality of the harness to the extreme. In the 1980s, with the release of the film Wall Street, Wall Street imitated his clothes, and with the spread of print media, a quarter of the world's financial capital tycoons wanted to look like their heroes. And just under that power suit, there is always a harness that makes the tycoons' suit trouser line as rigid and straight as the outline of their faces.

Rock player David Bowie's (David Bowie) thin white Duke performance in Germany once again lifted the playboy effect, pushing the strap to another throne.

The resonance for the symbol of the former working class stems from the American TV series "Little House on the Prairie—Home on the Prairie" and the British rock band Chas & Dave. The emergence of rogue gangs and skinheads in "A Clockwork Orange-Clockwork Orange" also helped the film gain many fans.

Before Albert Thurston invented the harness for high-waisted trousers, gentlemen's trousers were fixed with suspenders (like female stockings), but in the 19th century, the harness was part of the underwear and was not decorative. Albert Thurston pioneered the invention of the harness that can be worn outside, so that the strap began to have both decorative and practical functions.

The style and material of the harness used by men have already become complicated by the single choice of the past. At present, the brands are mainly divided into Y-shaped and X-shaped, as there are H-shaped, but H-type is less simple than Y-shaped and X-shaped, and the material has evolved from the original woven nylon to denim canvas merino wool; the pattern has more polka dot stripes or even cartoon patterns.
