Having braces or suspender buttons in some of your key pairs of pants or trousers takes a minute of work for a lifetime of pleasure and stylishness. There's nothing wrong with clips, and in fact our Dublin 1" Suspenders come with combo clips giving you the option to use standard clips or button ins, but having the choice to use button ins is a fantastic, fashion-forward option that very few utilize. Your best case scenario is to know, or be someone awesome, who has the skill to attach buttons on the inside waist of your trousers - sew them in pairs, two sets in the front and one in the back. The two in the front should be 1.5" apart from each other, while we like the back buttons to be 2" apart.
For the other 95% of us, you can take your pants and the buttons that we put in the box, to any tailor. It will take them a day and maybe $20 - $25 to fasten them (invisible to the outside). Once you button in your braces you'll see the immediate benefit. With twice as many points of pull, they're easier on your pants, and good people will instantly appreciate the dedication. Remember, near the end of the work day or the end of the party, suspenders can spend part of their time relaxed and worn down... we hope you like compliments.
