Choices

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

I can't believe it, I didn't even know summer sock garters existed until I read it here. Now, I just won a pair of vintage summer sock garters on eBay and they have no metal parts, perfect for the airport and the court house, no problem with metal detectors.

I'm always amazed at how efficient summer garters are. They too fragile to do the job, but they do. Enjoy and take some photos to share.

All my garters are from Brooks brothers and havesingle grips. Wear garters everyday with my dress socks.

Single grips for me

I love the idea of the double-grips, and I like the way they look, but they really don't hold up my socks as well as the singles. Since I hate falling socks and garters more than the look of the garters, I have to choose function over form every time.

The irony is that one would think double grips would be more secure. Like you, I have found this not to be the case.
