Biker Style SuspendersSpring is right around the corner, which means it’s time to get the ol’ bike out of the garage, give her a dust off and start dreaming about beautiful afternoons spent cruising the countryside.
Bikers are known for many things — looking tough but actually being some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, having strong ties to fellow bikers and always maintaining an epic personal style.
Along with handlebar mustaches and embroidered leather vests, bikers are also known to incorporate suspenders into their apparel choices. There are two main reasons why most bikers choose to wear suspenders — one, because they look cool (of course), and two, because they help keep pant waist lines in place while riding down the highway. Style and substance; it’s no wonder suspenders are so popular with bikers.
When choosing the type of suspenders suit your needs, there are a variety of options to choose from. Luckily, SuspenderStore has you covered.
Y-Back vs. X-Back
Prefer to keep things streamlined in the suspender department? Y-back suspenders have front straps that meet together in the middle of the back and lead down to a single attachment point, making them a simple and classic option.
X-back suspenders, on the other hand, cross over each other in the center back and have two separate attachment points on the rear waistband. Some people believe this method provides a more secure hold — give them a try and see what you think.
Leather vs. Elastic
Another choice to make is if you’d prefer leather or elastic as the suspender material.
Leather is an especially popular suspender choice in the biker community because it goes so well with the classic biker appearance. Leather vest, leather chaps — why not leather suspenders, too? Add this accessory, and your look will be complete. Sonny Boy leather suspenders are particularly popular with bikers since they are both sturdy and easily decorated with conchos to add additional personal style.
For those who are looking for more function than form, elastic is a choice you can’t go wrong with. Elastic suspenders come in a myriad of different colors and patterns, and will stretch to accommodate any movement as you take daring twists and turns through gorgeous mountain passes. Patriotic flag suspenders, colorful flames suspenders and skull suspenders are among the many popular novelty patterns available.
