What to Consider When Choosing Workwear Braces

Trouser braces are an important part of the workwear. This guide helps you make informed decisions about the braces to purchase, especially when choosing a pair of Hosenträger von Stihl to wear.


Build and height are quite important to consider when choosing the type of workwear braces to purchase. For instance, most of “off the peg” braces are cut to 40 to 42 inches, which are quite small. The standard sizes should be generous enough and be at least 44-inches in length. The common width of braces is 35mm. In fact, some workwear braces can be thicker at 50mm or 40mm and 25mm are considered to be slim braces.


You should note that workwear braces are available in a wide range of materials, including silk, box cloth, and elastic. In fact, a quality brace ought to be elastic enough.

The alternative and probably the most popular are clip-on braces. These are quite convenient as they do not need buttons to be on the waistband of trousers. They simply clip onto the waistband of the trouser.

You can find brace clips in gold or silver-colored metal. In this case, they range from the thin plain clip through the heavy-duty clip that is 1-inch in size. Also, the quality of the clip is quite important. They need to hold the trouser material firmly and not tear trouser material. In addition, they should be easily unfastened and fastened repeatedly. You can find cheaper pairs of braces but have poor quality clips.


The main shapes of braces are Y shapes and X shapes. In fact, the type of brace is determined by what braces look like when wearing them. Some braces form letter X, and others form letter Y. Most men favor X back braces because they offer a better fit. They have two sets or clips of button loops and can attach to the trousers.

It does not matter whether you opt for Y back braces or X back braces, you will realize where the material meets at the back; it creates a joint. The joint can be made of metal, plastic, and leather and keeps them in place. Ideally, the metal and leather joints look better as compared to the plastic ones.
