No. 2 American Buffalo Snap-Hook Suspenders

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

Colonel has redesigned our popular No. 2 Snap-Hook 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

Colonel Littleton’s No. 2 American Buffalo Suspenders with solid brass scissor-type snap hooks 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.  Col. Littleton Logo embossed on back shield.  Three solid brass scissor-type snap hooks attach to your belt loops for easy wear with most pants.

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.”

    These beautifully crafted suspenders arrived neatly packaged and in perfect condition. I love the extras included as well. These suspenders are a Christmas gift for my fiance to wear on our wedding day this June. I will enjoy seeing him (and the suspenders) wear over the years!

    I received these suspenders quicker than expected. I will use the suspenders as a Christmas gift. It’s not for me so I can’t write about its functionality or comfort but what I can tell is that the product looks very fancy and high quality. I also loved the packaging! I really hope that I will win the gift certificate so I can buy more products from the website. Everything looks beautiful and very well made! The gift is for my husband and I will write a follow-up review once he receives the gift. I hope he will love it!

    Ordered a pair of the No. 2 American Buffalo snap hook suspenders and got them the next day. As I unpackaged them, I noticed the quality of the workmanship that went into making the suspenders, you will find no better quality! I immediately put them on. A breeze to adjust and they look stellar with my No. 5 leather cinch belt. Have received multiple comments on my belt, I am sure I will receive as many comments on the suspenders. Some folks say I am little paranoid because I wear the suspenders with a belt, but I feel more secure with both. The best part was the made in Tennessee Moon Pie that came with the suspenders, it was also high quality and fresh! You cannot go wrong with a Colonel Littleton purchase. Might pick up a wallet next just to get another moon pie. Thanks for reading this review and live happy.

    Received my No. 2 Buffalo suspenders today, I am thrilled. They look great. The workmanship and materials are excellent and as advertised. Adjusting them was easy. Should have bought these a long time ago.

    I have owned a pair of these great suspenders and have used them daily for over five years. I even have a second pair for “backup”. They are easy to use with any pants from jeans to dress pants, and clip on and adjust very quickly. I’ve been asked many times where I got them, and recommend them to everyone. My well-worn soft pair developed a small problem with the elastic, and Col. Littleton’s customer service not only repaired them in a timely manner, they sent a free gift and a hand written note. They are the standard that other companies should emulate. Get a pair. You’ll like ’em!

Our Story

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.
