I Wear Men's Sock Garters

    No Question About It.

    There are two things which can ruin the appearence of a gentleman.  One is unshined shoes, and the other is sagging socks.  I have an aversion to both so I've been wearing garters since I was about 15.   I don't feel properly dressed without them on.  For me, they are the...

    28 Years And Counting

    I've worn garters since I bought my first pair at the age of 25. I saw them in a Brooks Brothers case and had to have them. I didn't even know they were still made. For years, I was afraid to let anyone know I wore them, since it was something associated with old men. Now...

    Garters Were A Plus With My Girlfriend

    Maybe because my dad wore them, and because I found OTC socks really uncomfortable, I got into the habit of wearing sock garters for work and whenever I wasn't wearing jeans, shorts or a bathing suit. When I started dating a certain girl from work, she noticed that I was wearing...

    Choices

    How many of you wear single grip garters? Double grips? Shirt stays? I have all three but still prefer my single grips.

    I'm thinking about trying out sock garters, I decided on the color black already and did some research, what would be the best type, one strap or two straps?

    Today, I wore a pair of Albert Thurston sock

    garters to hold some socks up over my long johns. What I like about these particular garters is the fact that they are a good half inch thicker than the usual fair . I have two pairs, one dark blue with white edging, and one black with white edging. Being that little bit thicker...

    I love wearing sock garters over long johns.

    It's the ultimate in 'old men's wear', especially if one's long johns are dependent upon one's braces for support! Everything was utilitarian in our great grandfathers' day: Form and function, but delightfully pleasing none the less. Why wear over elasticated hosiery, suffer...

    I have worn sock garters

    since I was 16 and gifted a pair by grandfather, who thought it was time for me to dress like a man. I do not feel properly dressed unless my socks are sleek and supported correctly.

    No More Sagging Socks

    Just Like My Dad And Grandfather.....
