    Really? You live in PA and would ask that question?:D I always wore my riggin jeans a couple of sizes too big in the waist. You could move more freely and it helped the chips fall through;)

    I do not wear them myself but if you carried alot of items with you like wedges and a tape or who knows what else, the suspenders might just help keep your pants up.

    I'm a minimalist, I don't wear them.

    I find that wearing elastic waist band shorts work really nice to keep them up, my preferred shorts have elastic along with a string that I can cinch up.

    Another one for the forestry & logging forum?

    Even I wear rigging pants in the woods with suspenders. Pants stretch out in the waste, and then they sag and become a safety problem.

    I heard this gem from a hooktender, talking to his boss, " I told him he better get suspenders and stop sagging. NOBODY needs that much room."

    Gots to be able to contort and move around quickly in the brush. Also, when jeans get wet, they will want to droop and the suspenders stop that. Think of all the stuff that fallers:bowdown: have to carry on a belt and we mortals even carry stuff in pockets.

    Besides, it is the style. But, there are special suspenders for the faller caste, and the plainer ones for the rest of us, and both should be the button ones.

    Don't you know? Every log truck driver used to be a faller. That's what they'll tell you. :msp_smile:

    Maybe belts don't come in their size....? Also notice that all of them are high water style too?

    I wear either bib overalls or ####ies brand Perry suspenders on regular jeans when doing any kind of heavy work, or when working the garden or working on c/s/s firewood.

    I just hate when jeans keep drooping the more one bends and lifts wood or whatever.

    Just sayin'...

    ***Wow...can't print the brand name because it gets censored!!"***

    I don't like my shirt coming untucked, and I wear a harness and falling belt with all my #### hanging off it. Tried a belt once, but it wasn't very comfortable with the falling belt over top of it.
