Happy National Suspenders Day! Here at SuspenderStore, there's one holiday that's even more special to us than Christmas, Thanksgiving or New Year's, and that's National Suspenders Day! We wear our suspenders every day, but put a little extra snap in our straps one day of the year! Every year, the holiday is celebrated on Oct. 20 to pay tribute to one of the world's best-ever accessories. Here's everything you need to know about our favorite holiday. The History of National Suspenders Day Suspenders were invented way back in 1820, when British clothing designer Albert Thurston discovered the need for an accessory that would help hold up his pants. They really took off, though, when Mark Twain received a patent for suspenders with adjustable, detachable suspenders in 1871. Yes, it's true, one of the most famous writers of the 19th century was also an inventor, and we're forever grateful! Since then, suspenders have been a staple of men's fashion in nearly every decade. National Suspenders Day was created to honor people, pets and fictional characters of all nations and backgrounds who love suspenders. It's celebrated annually on Oct. 20 regardless of the day of the week. Here at Suspender Store, it's our favorite day of the year. Celebrating Suspenders Day in Style Even if you only wear suspenders one day of the year, make this be it! You can go classic to honor Thurston or Twain with some solid-colored dress clip suspenders, or keep it fun and festive with a pair of novelty suspenders. The great thing about modern-day suspenders is that they do much more than just hold your pants up. They come in an amazing array of prints and patterns that help you show off your style. Rock striped, paisley or polka dot suspenders if you're into the classics, or show your big personality with styles in camouflage, animal prints, flames, American flags, sports themes, music notes and more!
