What do you think about clip-on suspenders? Are they completely worthless? Do they keep your pants up worse than buttonable suspenders?

I've been wearing a belt all my life, but I've been thinking about trying suspenders. I would like to start with clip-ons as pants with suspender buttons are rare(unless tailored).

I also would like to ask, is wearing suspenders with jeans acceptable?

They are not worthless because many times the trousers do not have suspender buttons like you said.

I am looking for some in 1"-1.5", clip ons. What's a good make of them?

Totally acceptable......if you are a peformer in the Ringling Bros Circus!
No clip ons....Get them done the right way or don't do them. NO braces with jeans!

The proper way to wear suspenders or braces are the buttoned ones. The pants would therefore have no belt hoops. Clip-on suspenders are costume. Most people outside this forum (or any clothing fora) will never know the difference so if you want to wear the clip-ons as a test then try it. Wearing them with jeans wouldn't be your first choice unless you want to be theatrical.

Which perfectly proves the point that you shouldn't wear suspenders with jeans.

If you are going to wear them, wear a sweater or vest so they can't be seen. And, never admit on any men's clothing forum that you do it.
