I'm looking to purchase a pair of Albert Thurston suspenders, but the only size the online store has in stock is extra-large. Does anyone know if it's easy to shorten suspenders?

thanks,

Jacob

Talk to your alterations tailor. He/she should be able to do this at a pretty low cost <$10.

It is very easy to do. Any tailor should be able to handle it.

Email Mr. Kew at Thurston Braces and he will make a specific size for you. I asked for a specific length several years ago of an otherwise stock model, and he modified them at no cost.
