Truth is hot men can wear whatever the hell they want, but they know they’re pretty much the only human beings out there who can pull off SUSPENDERS in the sexiest way possible. Okay now, my dearest boys, get off the celling, and onto earth, cause I was only joking.
ALL men can wear suspenders. Cause all men and women are gorgeous in my book. (bet you didn’t see this one coming, but it’s true.)
So they’d better put these old-school accessories on cause it’s one of the biggest trends out there at the moment.
Also it helps them keep their pants on.
Or maybe not. But don’t cloud your thoughts on steamy scenarios now, what I meant was SUSPENDERS for men have become such a stylish and statement accessory that it’s got less-to-nothing to do with utility, and more, if not all, with STYLE.
Before coming across JJSuspenders brand – a company that designs and sells fantastic suspenders styles for men – I had no idea these accessories came in so many colours, and styles: leather, with buttons, with clip-ons, skinny suspenders, wide suspenders, solid suspenders, stripe, pattern… the sky’s the limit. No wonder the sartorials are bringing them back, it’s literally a style blessing and fashion-game-on-heaven for all those men who love to keep it classy, but cool and statement at the same time.
So boys make sure you check out their shop here – JJ SUSPENDERS – and have a look, cause… you know… hot men do wear suspenders. Just saying. You’re welcome.
Wherever you look these days, if fashion’s on your mind, they’re there: beautiful looking men, with brilliant style, polished yet borderline lumbersexual, with one thing in common: SUSPENDERS. Also, rings on fingers help, polished shoes, beards, slicked back hair… you get the idea. Billy Huxely, Justin O’Shea and so on.
When it comes to suspenders though as easy and conventional as they may look, the business of styling them is pretty tricky.
Rule #1 Never wear suspenders and a belt at the same time. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES. Unless of course you lost a bet, then you gotta honour it.
Rule #2 Always pick the right suspender style for the occasion, outfit, body type, and personal look.
The suspenders that go for office, might not go for a weekend casual look, or a night out. Think Michael Douglas in his 80s-90s film. The guy was always playing some wolf of wall street in a suit and suspenders. I doubt he was chilling in the same attire at a picnic.
For more casual looks you can certainly have fun with leather suspenders, skinny styles, coloured, printed. Try them on, see how they fit your body types & how they match your shirt.
Speaking of which, suspenders do tend to look so much better with a shirt, BUT if you got the swag you can totally pull them off with a T-shirt as well. It’s all about experimenting and having confidence.
The days when suspenders were not too mainstream or fashionable are looooong gone, and while I myself was a bit skeptical about suspenders in general, well… on men, they tend to look good. Ok, great actually. I’m sure all y’all are already rocking them. It’s not the first time I’m the last to notice something that’s been right under my nose for the longest time ever.
Not anymore though. My eyes are wide open for this one.
