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.”

  1. I love these suspenders! I had been looking for a leather pair, but all I could find were the braided ones. Until I ran across this site. I get a LOT of compliments and inquiries on where to find them. I feel like I’m a sales representative for the company. Only thing now is to say they should be offered in black as well. OK Col. Littleton, here’s your marching orders.

  2. I wore bib overalls and suspenders on my regular pants when I was a child and loved them because it was all I had in the late ’30s and the ’40s through WWII! In the times of plenty that followed the war I had “better” clothing but never forgot the feeling of freedom in my bibs and with suspenders! Now in the last half of my 80’s and for the first time in 75 years I feel free and comfortable as I did those many years ago! The look and quality built into the suspenders along with the feel of comfort I am experiencing will be mine for the rest of my life! As with the rest of my leather products from you the look and the feel is mine to enjoy as are the compliments I receive about all of them!
    Thank you again for a quality product! Jim W

  3. Good morning. I guess I can’t say enough about your products. To start with excellence in your customer service and care. I purchased a No. 2 Suspenders and No. 4 Belt and the workmanship is impeccable. The packaging and presentation was pristine. Basically above and beyond expectation. We need more people like you folks that care about American made products and bring our work home. Thank you all so much. -Outdorrsman

  4. I wear these great suspenders EVERY day here on Magnolia Farm. I love them and receive compliments often. Made to last! Thanks!!

  5. I purchased the suspenders for my brother as a Christmas gift and just received the item today. My expectations are by far exceeded. The quality of the workmanship, the grade of the leather to the detail of the stitching is just remarkable. I don’t know if the brass for the hardware is crafter by the Col. Littleton company or not but the weight of the brass is outstanding. You cannot find that kind of high quality weight in products any more. I purchased a gift for my sister also, which I will review in another section. My siblings and I stopped exchanging gifts many years ago. I was so moved by the quality of what I saw on this website I was moved to get the products that made me think of my family. Thank you for quality gifts to present to quality people.

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.
