Quote from Irvin S. Cobb (June 23, 1876 – March 11, 1944)
“A sudden violent jolt of it has been known to stop the victim’s watch, snap his suspenders and crack his glass eye right across.”For that matter, did you have any idea that anybody cared about suspenders anymore? Well, Sal Herman does. Herman, founder of the Hold-Up Suspender Company, knows his product is far more than the exclusive accessory of truckers, farmers, skiers, groomsmen, and Larry King. However, even though Herman predicts the Hold-Up brand should break $2 million in sales this year and move as many as 100,000 pairs of suspenders. Sal offers over 220 styles of Hold-Up suspenders — featuring his no-slip clips and composite plastic Gripper Clasps — including models for teens, girls, bikers, and pregnant women. His latest brainchild is a super-soft pair made to be worn underneath one’s clothing, called Under-Ups. From western wear type leather suspenders to satin finished dual clip Double-Ups for office wear and wedding Sal has the largest collection of styles and colors.
