Real men wear suspenders. Suspenders are like scarves. Some may scoff, but we know the truth. There is something about a pair of shoulder straps that simply defines masculinity. At my sister’s wedding, all the groomsmen wore suspenders and and received compliment after compliment during the ceremony.
I have actually been fond of suspenders since I was a little boy. My grandfather wore them every day without fail throughout my adolescent youth, so in receiving these beautifully crafted pair of leather suspenders, I was extremely satisfied and excited to see people’s reactions and put them to the test.
Project TransAction is an Etsy company that started out in Jamaica Plain, MA. Jacob Vaughn Gushue (Owner, Maker, And Designer) started out screen printing clothing for friends during high school, which then developed into a business. The company puts time and meticulous detail into their products and It is hard to rival their oak-tanned leather–that is both strong and soft–and the brass hardware found on these suspenders.
I prefer the clip-on suspender clasps personally, unlike the trigger snaps seen on these suspenders, due to ease of use. But after sewing buttons on the pants that I thought would go best with Project TransActions product, and buying the button end leather attachment, I could not have been more satisfied! I was proud of the outfit and how the buttons contributed the overall style to the suspenders.
Although I have only owned them for three months, the wear is nonexistent, leading me to believe they will last a long time. All in all, this product is of good quality and I plan on recommending them to anyone who shows interest. Do yourself a favor and buy a pair for yourself; you will not be disappointed.
