    Default FS: Poor Boy Braces Authentic material Handsewn

    After many requests for more authentic material & period accurate one peice braces, I now offer these braces for the progressive campaigner. One peice, for single button front trousers. Four adjustment holes from 41", 39.5", 38", 36.5" measured from rear button, over opposite shoulder, down to front button. As per orginal in attached photo, there will be about 4" of brace hanging down in the front. Backing is off white ticking material. Sides are folding in and then I handstitch at 5-6 stitches per inch (mostly) and buttonholes are handsewn with white cotton thread. This period correct material is Civil War correct from Marcus Fabrics. This particular fabric Civil War Melodies by Judie Rothermel. The fabric is substantially more expensive than the homespun fabrics I have used in past creations so price is higher than previous offerings . I do have other colors/patterns that are available as well.
    Email for pics & orders to hbdavis1876@msn.com
    Price is $30 and includes First Class shipping.

    Braces sold, pending funds. I will be making more and posting them as I get them completed. Currently, I have 4 different pattern/colors that I will be using. If sales dictate a larger offering of pattern/color, I may add more in the future.
    Thank you.

    This pair is on hold, pending funds. I will have another pair ready next week, using a different material than the previous two pairs.
    Thank you for all the interest.

    I currently have these 4 authentic fabrics with the names & makers of the particular fabric that I am making these PoorBoy braces from. If there is a particular style you want to order please contact me. I will try to have some in stock ready to ship, but may have to make them. If demand warrants, I may add different fabrics in the future.
    Email hbdavis1876@msn.com or PM with orders/desires & payment information.

    I am just finishing up a pair from the "Reflections of an Era Past" fabric.

    NOTE: I mislabeled one of the styles as Concho Mills and it should be Cocheco Mills.
    Thank you.
