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 5 by 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 5 by 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 5 by 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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by clokey clips or buttons??
Good product. My choice was button type, more secure with style. Wide straps with backing, measure for good fit. Would prefer the Y style, but they hold yer pants up!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrampsB Second pair of suspenders
These new LL bean suspenders replace my former favorites purchased over 25 years ago. The straps are even better and stronger and the clasps are bigger and stronger.
