My style inspiration comes from iconic male figures, not necessarily from GQ or any other men's fashion source. Although I have never agreed 100% with Larry King's point of view, this award-winning television host has inspired me to rise to the challenge ...and motivated me to wear suspenders.
A few weeks ago, my sponsor sent me a box with men's accessories, including my first suspenders (see video below). When I saw it, I thought about Larry King and his successful career, also thought "I'm not there yet". But, I decided to give myself an opportunity.
Personally, I associate this accessory with success and not necessarily with the 20th century style (fedoras, mustaches, speakeasies, etc.). I learned suspenders look dapper with casual street style looks and cocktail attires. It's a vintage item, but you can pull it off with any style.
The DIBI suspenders I am wearing (shown above) are exclusive to the October 2017 Gentleman's Box. The retail value of this item is $60, but you can get them along with other cool accessories for only $20 when you use my promo code 'MFB5'.
