    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...

    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 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.

    New To This

    After reading all your stories and seeing pictures on flickr, I ordered a pair from fineanddandy.com on Monday. They arrived yesterday and I'm wearing them today. They're great! I think they're kind of sexy, too. Adam

    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...

    Just Like My Dad And Grandfather.....

      I was raised by my father. He was a marine and  very classic and conservative in his wardrobe. As was my grandfather. This was expected and passed on to me. Both my father and grandfather wore sock braces. They were solid colors and some had stripes. As an adult  my career...

    Choices

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

    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...

    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...

    No More Sagging Socks
