"Braces" or Suspenders c. 1790-1820

Hand sewn braces, or suspenders, for men's trousers.
This style is the same as those described in Kannik's Korner trousers pattern  KK-4303. The pattern was based on information from January 1812 French Imperial decree relating to uniform of foot troops, as well as contemporary illustrations.

These are made of linen, with linen and and/or cotton webbing, with brass buckles. Entirely hand sewn by Fritz Kannik and local friends. They are adjustable at the front tab and buckle. They must be worn crossed in back. Buttons must be sewn to the trousers waistband in front and back, total of four buttons required (not included).
Approximate 1-1/4" wide by 36" long.
