H054376 SUSPENDERS. (Strumpfhalter)

BACKGROUND: The German army utilized a wide variety of long trousers and breeches including the M35 dress pants, the standard straight legged long pants, assorted breeches, drill and field pants, tapered "keilhose" pants and assorted specialized pants designed for specific branch of service personnel such as the Mountain troopers pants and the Panzer and Assault Gunnerís pants. Originally the early assorted trousers were not equipped with belt loops as the standard way to hold up trousers at the time was with suspenders and the weight bearing waist belts were utilized to help distribute the weight of the equipment carried. Eventually many of the assorted trousers were outfitted with belt loops or integral tunnel looped belts as the suspenders were somewhat restrictive although they continued to be used through-out the war.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Nice quality, private purchase, elasticized suspenders with natural tan leather and magnetic sheet metal fittings. The gripper buckles each have the impressed trade name, "Herkules". All complete.
