Australian Made Braces
Our braces are handcrafted in Australia using the finest elastics sourced from Belgium. We offer a multitude of plain colours or fancy patterns, with new released several times a year, so be sure to check in to see what is new.
X-back vs Y-back
Our braces are available in X-back and Y-back variants. This relates to the shape of the back of braces when worn. Although it is a personal preference as to which type of back will suit you best, if you require additional support and comfort from your braces, we recommend selecting X-back. Please note that X-back braces are available in 25mm and 35mm widths, whereas Y-back braces are available in 35mm width only.
Leather ends vs Nickel clips
Our braces come in two end finishes - leather ends and nickel clips. Leather ends or otherwise known as "button on braces", fit to buttons sewn on the waist band of men's pants. Nickel clips are our standard end and feature a pressed nickel clip that clamps onto the pants. These clips feature plastic 'teeth' which means that they do not damage or mark pants. Both styles feature nickel adjusters which allow you to fit your braces perfectly.
Our braces come in two widths being 25mm and 35mm. If you require additional support and stability from your braces we recommend selecting the wider style.
Why own more than one pair of braces?
If you elect to own a pair of braces that feature nickel clips, we highly recommend that you invest in a few pairs - one for each type of pants that you wear. Nickel clips have what we call "memory". Over prolonged wear, the clips will stretch to the thickness of the fabric on the pant's waist band. This can become problematic, especially if they are worn one day on a pair of thick jeans and then another day on a thinner pair of slacks.
Clip replacement service
More often than not, the elastic on our braces will outlast its' clips. At Buckle | 1922 we are all about being sustainable, and we also stand by our product. We offer a free clip replacement service for the life of our braces. Simply contact us if you would like to replace your clips (and/or adjusters). You will be provided with instructions on how to return back your braces. This service is only available on our braces and takes on average 5-10 working days.
