Where Can I Get A Pair Of Strong Braces?

Help....I am tired of the braces I have at present coming loose and twanging off my trousers. I have scoured Amazon looking at various pairs, but there doesn't seem to be any that boast of remaining clipped on tight. They vary in price and of course I wonder if the more expensive ones (they vary in price from a couple of quid up to the thirty quid mark) are capable of doing the job intended which is to keep the trousers up reasonably tight. Short of sitting and sewing buttons on all my trousers and buying the button on type of braces, I cant see an answer unless anybody knows of a pair that would do the job.

The Amazing Braces option is certainly a full belt and braces solution:)

...and certainly much more pleasing to the eye than the mole grips that woodchip recommends attaching to each clip...

Thanks all for the replies. I have ordered a pair of the amazing Braces. They sound like a sound idea to me. I hope they arrive in time for my night out. Otherwise it will be pliers to the fore.

How did you get on with the Amazing Braces?

BT. Sorry for not coming back earlier on this. I bought a pair of Amazing Braces and they are no doubt the answer to the problem. I wore them with my evening dress having got my lady friend to sew on some loops for my belt. Dress trousers don't have loops for belts. I found the braces "amazing" what more can I say?

I have since bought another pair so that I have one pair for every day use and I have them on now, the other pair I will keep ready for the next time I attend a black tie Doo. By the way looking at the label on this second pair I bought it seems they are manufactured in the USA. Makes a change from China I suppose. But I recommend them to anybody who needs a reliable pair of braces...

So thanks for the tip and thanks to everybody else for trying their best to make a fool out of me etc.

I have been in touch with the firm that sells the braces and suggested that they make them in a bigger selection of colours than they presently stock. In fact I suggested that they sell them in regimental colours. I reckon they could make a killing. I could sell at least a dozen pair in our Association.

In case anybody is looking to buy a pair of these braces, you can also try the site of "Perry Suspenders" in the USA. I got the name from the label on the amazing Braces I bought, and googled the US site.

They have a bigger choice of colours and patterns etc. also they have a set that looks like a gun toting holster, which only has two fixings, one at either side. (If I carried a gat I would buy them). Prices looked reasonable too, but no idea what postage would be.
