Good idea but they have a couple of issues for me.....

I totally agree with katybug on everything she reviewed on these suspenders however I think I found a very good alternative to wearing them inside-out. First of all the back strap hooked on a belt inside-out will be off centered because the hook is backward it wont hook over the back belt loop properly and looks awkward. Second, if you need to adjust them after a period of time you can't because they will be backward. You would have to take them off to do adjustments properly. The leather back piece at the Y is UG-LEE!! and raw tan colored. I thought about this a while and came up with the idea of dying it black! All of my button suspenders have a polished black piece so why can't this one? I found some Kiwi black liquid wax shoe polish in my cabinet and applied it liberally. The raw leather soaked it right in and the polish left a semi-glossy shine. You can still see the PERRY emblem but it isn't near as noticeable (See attached photo).
Also it depends on the thickness of the belt whether or not the clips slip off when removing the pants. I wear a Dockers Men's 30mm Glazed Top Braided belt and it is rather thick so the slipping off part isn't a problem for me.
One other note - The back strap at the bottom of the "Y" is 2 inches wide whether you purchase the 1/12 or 2 in suspenders. I guess maybe for extra support in the back because of there only being one strap. All my other suspenders aren't made this way. For this reason (along with the ugly back piece) I give these suspenders 3 stars.
