Our Story

In early 2019, I quit wearing belts. My weight was fluctuating, and I was tired of adjusting my belt every time I would sit down and stand up.

I began looking for suspenders. I couldn’t find an option that would be strong and comfortable enough for daily wear, while being fashionable. I realized I could be the one to make a versatile suspender for any gender, any age, and any occasion.

"We are here to make the best suspenders in the world and have some fun in the process"
-Tyler Farley, Better Than Belts Founder

After months and months of research, the first samples were made in New York City from the highest quality elastic and the strongest clips and adjusters. I wore the samples and friends (and strangers) wanted their own.

Better Than Belts officially launched on Kickstarter, raising 64% of our goal in one day. Friends and family celebrated with a launch party at Pressed Juicery on Boston's infamous Newbury Street. People in the street celebrated by throwing away their belts.


Since then, Better Than Belts has sold thousands of suspenders and earned their  customers loyalty by not compromising on quality, comfort, or design. They manufacture in New York and care about supporting as much US manufacturing as they can.
