I decided to have another go at designing suspenders. This time I opted for Lilly Pulitzer fabric, instead of silk grenadine. There are two varieties. A pink corduroy with green embroidered bees and a pink, green, white and blue patchwork. Both come with white leather ends, nickel plated hardware and 6 buttons to affix to the inside waistband of pants. They are fully adjustable and should fit men up to 6’2″.
The suspenders would look at home on any man confident (or preppy) enough to wear them. But I think they would work best with a tuxedo, perfect for a deb ball. And just in time for Christmas.
Both colorways are $80 per pair and supplies will last until all are sold. Each pair is unique, however, some pair are similar, so when ordering please list your top 3 pair (use the picture # and description). Shipping will be an additional charge and will vary depending on the destination, international orders are accepted. Payment is by cash, paypal or barter.
I should note that this project was not done in collaboration with Lilly Pulitzer, so these are not made by the brand; but by my own design and initiative. Perhaps I am singlehandedly trying to bring back their mens line… I cannot say for certain where the fabric was produced but the suspenders were constructed here in New York City.
