Dave from SuspenderStore here with Drop Clip Suspenders. So, what's a drop clip? Is it a clip that you drop? No, it's a clip that is dropped lower than normal. So, what you have is this little piece of leather between the material, whether it's elastic or cloth or silk, and the clip itself. The leather drops the clip further down - hence, why it's called the drop clip.

Now, we tend to see these on dressier suspenders. That leather piece is a nice, tasteful touch. So, you'll find these on our dressy suspenders like our satins, plaids like I'm wearing, argyles, jacquard weaves, grosgrain and also if you have any silk suspenders that have clips. So, the dressier ones will have the drop clip on them. It will also dress up just a nice basic elastic suspender like these 1.25-inch all-elastic suspenders. The drop clip tends to make them look a little dressier, so you'll find folks buying these for something like a wedding but it's still only a $15 or $16 suspender - so, it's a great deal!

The drop clip can do a lot to dress up suspenders and give you a great accent. Check out our huge selection of drop clip dressy suspenders at SuspenderStore.
