Fogey Unlimited is proud to supply Albert Thurston Traditional Boxcloth Braces

Boxcloth,sometimes called ‘buckskin’, was the ultimate fabric for keeping out the cold in the 19th century. Since then it has continued to be woven in Yorkshire, then finished by being shrunk to half it’s original width, which tightens up the cloth allowing it also to be used for making the ultimate classic brace, and these are they.

Over 180 years of traditional British craftsmanship

In 1820, five years before Nelsons Column was built (to celebrate his life and death on the 21st October 1805 at the battle of Trafalgar) braces and suspenders were first made and sold by Albert Thurston from his emporium at 27 Panton Street, Haymarket, London. If you want to know whether any of your ancestors fought on the British side at Trafalgar

Thirty one years later, in 1851, the nation celebrated the Victorian era, when the Great Exhibition was held in Hyde Park. Albert Thurston received an Honourable Mention for the excellent standard of their products.

By now, Albert Thurston had become a by-word for quality in gentlemen’s’ accessories, and their braces and suspenders were destined to be sported by kings, princes, presidents and successful businessmen across the world over the next 2 centuries.

Into the twentieth century, Thurston’s reputation for quality and style has continued to grow.When asked for his reaction to the outbreak of war in 1939, actor Sir Ralph Richardson replied that he had gone straight to his tailor on Savile Row and purchased half a dozen pairs of Thurston braces in case they might be in short supply.

These are the “Rolls Royce” of braces and are manufactured by the oldest brace manufacturer in the world, Albert Thurston
