You may be a genius, but your stament on suspenders is wrong. They are just downright sexy. Especially on a crisp white shirt. Humphrey Bogart, Benjamin Franklin, Mickey Mouse, and even Larry King are known for wearing suspenders. First reports trace back to 18th century France (and who doesn't love French products and style?). They were originally ribbons attached to the buttonholes of trousers . Are the DIY brides getting styling ideas? Fun fact, before the 1940's were considered an undergarment never to be seen by the public., along with half of what is in fashion today. ;) Suspenders have had their good days and their bad days. From women sporting them during the 'unisex' look of the 1970's to falling out of favor in the early 20th century and finally making its way to the hipster [wedding] scene, suspenders have endured the test of time.
