For years, suspender wearers had to contend with clip-on
suspenders that kept slipping off their pants. Many wearers attempted to bend the metal clips to improve the gripping power,
but this quick fix seldom worked. Driven by the frustration of inefficient clips that
constantly let go, Sal Herman revolutionized suspenders with the introduction of his
patented no-slip suspender clip. The clip
features a single, needle sharp pin in the center of the clasp, which pierces and locks
into the pant waistband, without cutting, fraying or damaging the fabric. This simple
solution launched a rebirth in demand for this alternative to the binding, uncomfortable,
and often inability to holdup men's pant using belts. The Holdup Suspender story adds
something new to the 200 year old history of men wearing suspenders.
Over the decades, suspenders maintained a hold in the full
spectrum of the clothing accessory world. First, they provided the comfort of wearing
looser pants, so as not to contend with wearing a tight, restrictive belt (which did not
necessarily hold up their pants anyway). Second they added elegance to business and formal attire. Most attempts to bring them into
the mainstream have failed, because traditional suspender clips did not have the gripping
power to keep them in place and prevent them from slipping off the pants.
In 1996, Herman and his wife Judee began the Hold-Up
Suspender Company. Using the patented no-slip clip, they designed and
marketed a variety
of suspenders which included styles and fabrics for work, sports, casual, dress and formal
wear. In 2002, they introduced an improved new slant-faced no-slip clip. This clip
minimizes the flip-open problem that occasionally occurs when sliding against the back of
a seat. New in 2008 are the Trucker suspenders we call Hip-Clips that
attach at the sides of your pant waistband. These suspenders slip on
like wearing a backpack and this design also eliminates the
patented no-slip clips from getting snagged open when sitting down on
car seats, sofas and chairs. Review the photo slide show below
showcasing some new Holdup Suspender Products..
The Double-Up style suspender has the traditional aesthetic look of button-on
suspender braces, with the
ease of allowing the patented no-slip clips to instantly attach them to your pants without
sewing on buttons. All our suspenders use a clip so unique that they
were granted a USA patent. The Sloops line
jeans was added to the Holdup product catalog in 2004 and in 2008 we
added Sloops Black or Khaki Tan slacks made to be worn with our
suspenders. Sloops (as in NO BELT LOOPs) are designed to compliment and fit the physique of the typical suspender
wearer ~ no hips, no rear end. They may have plenty of belly, but
constantly are reaching around trying to holdup their pants, heading
towards their knees. If nothing else just buy some Sloops™
for the comfortable fit and excuse to wear some suspenders at work or
play. Now for the first time in 2011
