No. 3 American Buffalo Interchangeable Button/Snap-Hook Suspenders

American Made, Adjustable, Leather Lined, American Buffalo Interchangeable Snap-Hook/Button Suspenders – GREAT NEW DESIGN

Colonel has redesigned our popular No. 3 Suspenders, improving their quality and overall appearance.  The natural character and uniqueness of deep, rich wonderfully-textured, full-grain, Tobacco Brown American Buffalo seems perfectly matched to the casual nature of these suspenders.

Not only did he give them a new look . . . he gave them a leather lining, which provides a double thickness for a more substantial look and feel.  He then added quality-boosting edge stitching, presenting a more finished look and adding to their durability.  A new solid brass adjusting slide bar completes the look.

Functionality and Design

If you like having the option of wearing your suspenders with buttons or snap hooks, you’ll be a fan of our No. 3 American Buffalo Suspenders which come with buttons and solid brass snap hooks and may be worn interchangeably.

Colonel Littleton’s No. 3 American Buffalo Suspenders are an easy, stylish addition to your wardrobe.

“Actually, I’ve been fond of suspenders since the 1970s and have a fairly extensive collection.  I wear my Colonel suspenders almost every day.  These suspenders are not like their British counterparts – braces – which are, of course, very dressy.  Mine are more casual and made to be worn with jeans and khakis.”
– Colonel Littleton

Front suspender straps feature solid brass prong hooks to allow for eight inches of adjustment, so one size fits most.  The elastic back strap in the traditional y-back design increases comfort and mobility.  The Col. Littleton logo is embossed on the back leather shield.  Seven brass suspender buttons are included which attach to your pants like the top button on a pair of jeans.  Or, you can have regular buttons sewn on your pants to hold your suspenders.  Three leather-lined American Buffalo buttonhole tabs are included.

A set of three solid brass scissor-type snap hooks is included which attach to your belt loops for easy wear with most pants.  This gives you the choice of wearing your suspenders with buttons or snap hooks.

Handcrafted in the Col. Littleton Workshop, Lynnville, TN USA with fully leather lined, full-grain, polished American Buffalo and solid brass hardware.  This special polished leather is both vegetable tanned and hand tanned to a smooth finish and destined to develop a rich patina over the years.

All-in-all, a serious pair of suspenders handmade to last.  A great addition to your personal wardrobe or the perfect gift for the groom, groomsmen, husband or Dad.  Gift packaged in a brown gift box with the Col. Littleton Cameo Logo.

When it comes to American Buffalo, Colonel says,
“Expect a leather that is unapologetically rugged with more character, nicks, scrapes and variations in color.”

  1. As a teenager I worked summers for a well known regional, fine harness maker, so at age 82 I know good leather craftsmanship. These suspenders have excellent design, workmanship and quality materials. I have finally found a suspender that I am proud to wear. Thank you for an outstanding American made product. W. M. Durrett

  2. Love the suspenders. They are of great quality and look good too!

  3. Very pleased with the braces. I wear braces all the time. For work and dress. They are very comfortable. I have other leather braces and these are the nicest I have seen.

  4. Folks really need to have options with their “braces”. That is why I choose this product. I have worn suspenders most of my adult life. Had some good ones and some not so good. My wife sent this link to me and I saw your suspenders. The material and workmanship were obvious, and the style fits me. Am very happy with my selection. Thanks.

  5. Routine excellent craftsmanship, quality materials and design along with speedy shipping and as promised delivery for Col. Littleton and his team. Sets a high bar of expectations for others to meet.
    Sharp looking to boot!

    As always the Moon Pie is the finishing personal touch.

Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

Our Craftsmanship

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
