I really appreciate how the suspenders have strong clips that eliminate the wardrobe malfunction that occurs when the suspenders have clips that simply lack the jaw strength necessary. I don't like boring suspenders. I believe suspenders should reflect the personality of the wearer. I have the flamingo suspenders as well as the pineapple suspenders. Both elicit approving comments from others. I needed a third pair to better rotate my suspenders and felt the nautical theme would suit me.
