I am searching for this "Hosentraeger"? How do you call this in english and do you know where to buy?
Common name in the US is Suspenders. In the UK, they're known as Braces. I believe the MTFCI carried them or used to carry them.
They are called suspenders You can find them at the other club for $19.95 (+ shipping/customs..)
What does UK call the temporary attachments to teeth used for realignment? Suspenders? Or do they have teeth in the UK?
Old timers called them galluses. The good ones button on. As a wee tyke I hated the clamp-on kind, and the decades have not improved my opinion of them.
They are called braces in England because suspenders are those pieces of undergarment worn by women to keep their stockings up (pre pantyhose). And we all know that no self respecting English man would wear a pice of ladies clothing! :-)
Women's suspenders in the US were called garter belts. The stockings were suspended by girdles or corsets on heftier women.
Steve, you probably know this already, but for the benefit of others, the name 'Galluses' is actually a corruption of 'gallows-s', and we all know that gallows are/were used for suspending!
Thanks to all for the information....sometimes i find we need more pictures......"garter belts...smile"
There's also a fixed length with multiple button holes in them called "Poor Boys"
