Where do the old-school and somewhat nerdy suspenders come from?

After visiting the French Street Festival in Johannesburg, South Africa this past weekend; it hit me. The humble suspenders – made famous on tv by Larry King – emerged in France during the 18th century.

Fashion and trends are an infinite circle. What goes around, comes around. The suspenders may’ve been as relevant in the 1900s as they are today.

Go on, add a touch of French flair to your attire.
