High quality button braces, made in Finland! Better start sewing on buttons on your trousers if they don't have them already, as only barbarians, men of low moral fibre and the Finnish army uses clip-on braces!

These have the whole package:

  • Classic Y-form, does not slip off even if you fail to have wide shoulders.
  • Button-on fastening, will fit every button width thanks to the traditional "free floating" design.
  • The adjustments won't slip by themselves and the workmanship is excellent overall.
  • Last but not least, these are made in Finland, which means by buying these, you not only support us, but an old local brace-maker. So, no profit for shady foreigners, except Belgians who supply the materials.

Size info

The sizes mean the maximum distance between the leather end pieces from the back to the front. So, measure your size with a measuring tape drawn from the back of the waist, over the shoulder, down to the front. Very simple.

If you plan on purchasing a pair of trousers from us along with the suspenders and naturally don't know the how high the waist will be, you can pretty safely use one finger width down from the belly button as the indicator.

The leather is of a good quality as seem to be all other materials. Button-on fastening really does fit on buttons of every size and stays on nice and secure.
Super-super comfortable! I really am going to sew on buttons on all my trousers now.

Really nice high quality product. I use them on the BW moleskin trousers for field use and just to look smart. I used a little leather grease on the leather parts of the suspenders just to keep them in nice condition.

I wear them everyday.
Not only they are of good manufacture, not only is the price real good (for Europe) but it's also a rare brand to offer a choice in length (110cm/120cm/130cm) as most other brands aren't designed for low (hip) hanging jeans.
These are also a great introduction to the world of suspenders as they stretch enough to make the sitting/standing transition easier. The classic expensive models using silk sure look fancier (eg: Trafalgar or Brooks Brothers) but they won't stretch as much when you sit up/down, giving you constant pain in the shoulders at the end of the day. The Helsingin Olkain are a breeze to adjust and the elastic band will stretch enough to fit you but without deteriorating either.

So if you live in Europe you will find that these are very affordable and well made compared to the rest, as we have few suspenders brands left.

Great quality at a reasonable price. Great looks and they keep the trousers up as well. The sizing is generous. I could have gone for the shorter size without any problems.

Iskin nämä kiinni BW-molskihousuihin, ja kyllä täytyy ihmetellä, kuinka toimivasta yhdistelmästä on kyse, kun on varusesineet suunniteltu tiettyä käyttötarkoitusta varten. Nämä eivät lähde itsestään irti niin kuin jotkut koukkuhenkseliviritelmät, eikä säätöjen vuoksi näitä tarvitse riisua. Säätöjen hammastus pitää tukevasti kiinni, eikä raavi henkseleitä pilalle.

A rare thing these days, a quality product made like they used to be made and for actual use and not just a fashion statement with a price tag.

Great value and superb quality. I bought a couple pairs of vintage Finnish wool pants that fit OK with a belt , but I decided to try these braces instead, and WOW super comfortable and more stylish! Now I want to sew buttons on all my pants!

ns. kunnon hyvät, kuten täällä päin on tapana sanoa. En löydä mitään kriittistä sanottavaa.
