TRAFALGAR LIMITED EDITION BRACES



Wearing the conversational braces pictured inside is, without question, a most discreet

and elegant manner of expressing one’s dash, style, and sense of humor. Many of these

hand-loomed silk braces have already established themselves as collectible and wearable works

of art. In fact, there have been numerous gentlemen willing to purchase braces from early

sold-out editions for several times their original worth. Some notable and celebrated individuals

wore the originals, including Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Benjamin Disraeli, and Oscar Wilde.

Recent limited editions of these braces are enjoyed by a diverse and worldly group of

aficionados–from royalty to rock stars, Supreme Court justices, film directors, sports heroes,

diplomats, novelists, and adventurers. Pick a pair that suits your fancy. Wear them with your

casual, business, or evening attire and enjoy the wonderful new dimension they bring to your

life. But beware! If not already a devotee, you may soon find yourself collecting these

timeless braces.


The intricate designs seen in these pages are woven using only the finest denier silk yarns.

Yarns that are so very delicate, they could not be used on today’s high speed looms. In the

early 1970’s the founder of Trafalgar discovered eight disassembled 200 year-old wooden looms

in an abandoned European carriage house. Originally built like fine pianos each loom was

re-built and refurbished over a two- year period. Today, one of Europe’s finest weavers is

producing these brace fabrics in limited editions, in part, because even the most skilled

craftsmen can only weave five yards of narrow silk fabric a day.


The artistic and sometimes whimsical designs of the Limited Edition braces come from

a variety of sources. Many have been generously loaned for reproduction by collectors, some

of whom were members of the original “International Society of Brace Collectors.” Over

twenty- five are faithful reproductions of pre-WWII New York City haberdasher, Calvin Curtiswho

designed eccentric, often humorous braces for influential men of the period. He created

America Hurrah for Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the early 1940’s
