Braces are a piece of clothing born in 1822. They were created by the English stylist Albert Thurston who began selling them at his London boutique located at 27 Panton Street to people of high class and of important social relevance. The latter were interested in wearing them for both functional and aesthetic purposes.

In 1851 on the occasion of the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park, London, he received an honorable mention for the manufacture and quality of his garments.

Consider a comfortable garment made of leather or fabric, they aim to support the pants in the correct position, slimming the male figure and above all considered extremely useful. They were soon adopted by the United States and then expanded all over the world.

At the beginning of the 20th century the braces had a new evolution; they were produced with stretch fabrics and equipped with buckles able to be adjusted at will by the wearer.

They were set aside by many for a few years in conjunction with the First World War as during this period uniforms with belts were adopted and made mandatory.

Until the 1940s, the habit of wearing the uniform belt remained, and this habit continued to prevail on suspenders, now considered old-fashioned.
