No. 1 Leather Button Suspenders – Button Model
Real men may not eat quiche, but they do wear leather button suspenders. Check out John Wayne in the movie Stagecoach (original version) and Tom Selleck in Quigley Down Under– two of my all-time favorite movies.
Actually, I’ve been fond of suspenders since the 1970s and a fairly extensive collection. Col. Littleton No. 1 Leather Suspenders are not like their English counterparts – braces – which are, of course, very dressy. Mine are casual and made to be worn with jeans and khakis.
Made in the Col. Littleton Workshop of our vintage brown polished leather with solid brass hardware. Adjustable design so one size fits most. Solid brass prong hooks allow for 8 inches of adjustment to the leather suspenders straps on the front. 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. Khaki colored elastic back strap increases comfort and mobility. Traditional Y-back design. Col. Littleton Logo embossed on back.
All-in-all . . . a serious pair of leather button suspenders.
Perfect for everyday wear or dress them up for a wedding (perfect groomsmen accessory).
Total length adjusts from 40″ to 49″ (measured end to end)
Leather suspenders straps are each 1.13-inch wide.
Color – Vintage Brown
GIFT Packaged in a brown gift box.
Handcrafted in Lynnville, TN USA from U.S. full-grain steer hide leather.
Warranted through the natural life of the suspenders.

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.
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.
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.
