What is the difference between “braces” and “suspenders”?
Terminology. The term “braces” originated in England and referred to the bands that go over the shoulders and attach to the trousers. In this country, they are commonly referred to as suspenders. There are those who believe that braces have button tabs which attach to buttons inside the trouser waistband while suspenders clip to the waistband of the trousers. In either case, there’s no need to wear a belt!
