You can wear our suspenders with anything, but we wanted to share a few of our favorites. Some items are exactly what we’re wearing in photos, and some are the same brand + similar styles because some of our favs have sold out. We've also included some of our favorite brands that are making pieces just screaming to be paired with suspenders.
1) Cotton Slub Sweater, Fair Isle - L.L. Bean
On sale for $59.99
2) Short Sleeve Button Up - Duvin
The most complimented shirt and suspenders you can possibly own. Combine the two and you are the life of the party, guaranteed.
3) Long-Sleeve Polo - Faherty Brand
To say that this is the best polo in the world would be an understatement. This shirt is the perfect fit and looks good with everything. Layer it with a sweater, cardigan, blazer, or wear it on its own. You'd think the vertical suspender stripes would clash the horizontal shirt stripes, but somehow they just look amazing.
4) Cowl Neck Sweater - Anthropologie
Womens. Need we say more?
Aimé Leon Dore (ALD) is putting out some of the most amazing clothing I've seen in a long time. This sweater is simple yet brings something new to the table, and is begging to be paired with a set of suspenders. When ALD dropped these pants with suspenders attached, we thought it was a pretty cool look. Pair our suspenders with any pair of pants to flex all winter long.
Mens. This Rowing Blazers piece has had my attention for months now. The wide corduroy and color make it pop. Plus, it's made in New York. Pair with our suspenders for a real 'I support New York jobs' look ;)
About Better Than Belts; Suspenders for the modern human
Better Than Belts (BTB) was founded by siblings Tori and Tyler Farley who are alumni of Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. Tyler’s weight fluctuated due to health issues and he grew tired of tight belts. He wanted to buy suspenders but found everything on the market to be costumes / novelty goods, formal wear, and construction apparel. No clothing brand was making a suspender durable and good-looking enough to replace a belt. Cue BTB, a modern suspender that is comfortable and versatile. As he neared launch, Tyler recruited his sister Tori who has extensive experience with startups, growth marketing, and analytics. The BTB Kickstarter raised $11,400 in one month, bringing the project to life and spreading quality, genderless suspenders to our first wave of dedicated customers. The suspenders are made in New York, USA of the highest quality components sourced from around the globe.
