Rated 4 out of 5áby HeavyPants Leather End Suspenders
I love these suspenders. But!
What I am concerned about is the leather used for the front leather parts. It seems to be getting thinner and thinner. This has been the failure point of previous pairs I have owned. I'm afraid they won't last as long as in the past.

Rated 2 out of 5áby ManfromManotick Leather button holders too flimsy and thin
This is my first disappointing purchase from Bean. I bought two pair of the leather ended suspenders and while the back button tabs are robust and strong, those for the front buttons are flimsy, the leather thin and weak, they're starting to stretch after only a few weeks of moderate use, and will (I'm sure) soon break. If the front button holders were as robust as those in the rear this would be a great product but, as they are now, I'll not buy any more of these from Bean. They just don't belong in the Bean line of high quality merchandise.

Rated 5 out of 5áby dano58 just what I needed
I wanted a pair of suspenders for my hunting pants. These are perfect. Most the suspenders I looked at were either too stretchy or the clips were too weak. These have just enough stretch to them to make them move with you so your not choked and the clips are heavy duty which works well on wool hunting pants.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Etownster Not recommended
Like others have previously noted these suspenders are stiff with very little elasticity. They do hold up pants well. The problem is that with twisting and turning and especially upon sitting the bands don't retract and the result is that they are constantly falling off the shoulders. I'm constantly putting the straps back on the shoulder.
Hard to fathom why LLBean doesn't fix this particularly since they have been selling the same suspenders for many years.
Life is hard enough and suspenders should be a solution and not another problem.

Rated 2 out of 5áby RobertofTiffin suspenders great, button attachments weak
the suspenders were exactly as I ordered them and was what I was expecting. The problem comes with the 2 leather button straps used to hold your pants up. The leather is very thin and mine broke or rather ripped out the very first time I wore them. I can still use the suspenders but must alter the straps or buy a new tougher leather button straps.

Very pleasantly surprised; these suspenders are durable, serious suspenders that hold up, stay in place, and classy looking!

Rated 2 out of 5áby theSnuggery Leather ends cheap
The suspenders are fine but the leather used on them are extremely cheap and thin. I am amazed the product passed an LLBean purchaser inspection. My Dad has made new ones as the original leather torn within two wearings.
This product is not up to the usual LLBean standard for quality.

My husband tells me everyday how much he loves these suspenders. He is not constantly pulling his pants up and his shirt stays tucked in. They are very comfortable!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Tedsbean Bright red, holds up heavy pants
This is a good product. The present version is not quite as well made as its predecessor (purchased from you more than 35 years ago) which had gradually become all stretched out with no elasticity.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Caffienated Excellent suspenders.
My husband was hit by a car several years ago. He has hardwear near his waist that makes a belt feel uncomfortable. He loves the suspenders. They keep his pants up in total comfort and they look good.
