Sock garters - Page 3

post #31 of 54
So do they run up and down the fronts and backs of your legs? What happens when you bend your knees (to sit down, for example)? Don't they pull against your pants in those situations?

The only garters should be on women..... I actually have a pair of sock garters which came with my boyscout uniform.

Added an option.

P.s. when there is a Thom Browne wedding, does the "wife" throw a sock garter?

Resurrecting an old thread...

I have tried so many forum-favourite sock brands; 90% of mid-calf socks do not stay up so I decided to try a pair of sock garters.

The question is which online retailer sells quality stuff?

Why not try over the calf socks?

I was also wondering about this. Does anyone have an answer?

OTCs are good for winter but too hot to wear in summer and spring where I live.

Albert Thurston: http://www.albertthurston.com/categoryfast2.cfm?catid=3

Bromleys has more colors: http://www.classicwardrobe.co.uk/Bra...uspenders.aspx

No experience with either, but am looking for some as well...

Thurston's are great and colour doesn't really matter. I wear sock garters just about every time I go out.

I wear Sock suspenders every day. Have doen for 20 years and I couldnt possibly consider going "naked".. Sock suspenders (garters) are quite different than shirt stays that keep your shirt tucked in and your socks i place... RBH PS. I buy mine from Fogey Unlimited

Although mostly unrelated, I think it's great when women purposefully wear stocking garters.
