Why do Amish men wear suspenders and not belts?
First off the Amish aren't the only ones that wear suspenders. Many businessmen, especially ones of the larger variety, much prefer suspenders or "braces" to wearing a belt. Notably for two reasons one: belts don't hold your pants up and are mostly for decoration whereas braces once they are set at the desired length will keep your pants right where you want them, and two: due to the aforementioned reason when wearing slacks with braces you can leave a little extra room around the waist which will make your pants much more comfortable. Just be sure that you don't wear both braces and belts at the same time, unless you want everyone to think you're from Texas.

The Amish people are Swiss and German. They typically speak aGerman dialect until they attend school, then they are taughtEnglish and German. Usually about the age of six. Answer2: The Amish are descendants of a group of 17th-centuryAnabaptists. Their name derives from their leader, Jacob Amman, who…lived in Switzerland. From their study of the Bible back then,these God-fearing people recognized that infant baptism andmilitary service were wrong. Because of their stand, the governmentpersecuted them. A few even paid for their religious convictionswith their lives. Persecution continued to increase, and a numberof them were forced to flee to other parts of Switzerland and toFrance.

The Amish are not allowed to use watches. They are a functional item but threaten the values of community togetherness (this is usually a value that items are checked against when bishops discuss its allowance). Watches are a way for Amish individuals to check the time, and as such, support "rush" a…nd hurry. These contradict the value of Gelassenheit, which encourages yielding and a slow lifestyle. Reflection has nothing to do with the item. In fact Amish individuals are allowed to own mirrors in their homes, they are just usually fewer and smaller. ( Full Answer )

Yes, you should wear braces (suspenders) anytime you are wearing a tuxedo, weather you're wearing a cummerbund, vest or going with the exposed waist look. You do not wear a belt with a tuxedo, and this is the only way to keep your trousers at your waistline.
Unfortunately, yes. Amish women tend to do the same things women did in the ancient times. In other words, Amish women usually run the household, while the men take care of the farm.
look around you. What ever they few comfortable in, and most of the time, what culture dictates. I for one, about 40% of the men do so, wear panties as more comfortable and women jeans since they fit better and nicer looking than a man wearing a potato sack, which are called pants. It is a culture i…ssue, and one must be conforming between culture and society, which sucks to me. What you wear, as long as in good taste nobody should care. ( Full Answer )

Most men of any age no longer wear suspenders, but it is up to the individual's taste in dress code. In the 1940s to 1960s older men wore suspenders and during the 60s they were worn during the Hippie Era as more of a fashion statement.
It does not matter at what age you wear suspenders as long as your pants are not around your knees with your boxers showing. Personally I like clean cute men young and old. So please wear your suspenders and do not worry about what no one has to say.....especially those that have never tried to wear… them man or woman. Sexy is as sexy feel. ( Full Answer )

Depends. The upper-class weapon of the day was the rapier but, thank to the writings of George Silver, many Englishmen still considered that a "continental" weapon and still carried a variety of sword. The sword belt for the rapier was more appropriately referred to as a "hanger". Additionally, a da…gger was usually worn with either, often at the back and accessible to the left hand, as most men (as today) were right-handed. ( Full Answer )

I just wondered the same thing and found this article on the website DailyXY.com: It is always reassuring to find that there are even more obsessive geeks out there than me. I confess to never having thought about this issue. But the idea that there might be a wrong way to do up your belt makes me q…uite giddy. So I have been poring over fashion photographs and found that there does not seem to be a standard: As with many things, some guys go left, some guys go right. I myself thread counterclockwise (that is, the non-buckle end of the belt finishes by pointing left) and I am right-handed. Then I did an exhaustive scientific survey of fashionable men and found that, indeed, counterclockwise is the most common direction among the right-handed. So yes, the left-over-right principle is violated. And interestingly, right-handed women seem to thread their belts in the same way, breaking the principle that women's and men's clothes should be directionally distinguished (as with buttons). The one left-handed man in my survey went clockwise. But it is worth noting that all buckles, even the ones that have some non-standard form of closure, such as the simple stud-in-hole that backs the more ostentatious metal symbols, can be presented facing either way and even turned upside down and lose no function. So you should lose no sleep over this: Any way is fine. And your jacket is going to be closed most of the time anyway, right? By Russell Smith ( Full Answer )
Amish women typically wear solid-color dresses with long sleeves and a full skirt, covered with a cape and an apron. They never cut their hair, and wear it in a braid or bun on the back of the head concealed with a small white cap or black bonnet. Clothing is fastened with straight pins or snaps, st…ockings are black cotton and shoes are also black. Amish women are not permitted to wear patterned clothing or jewelry. The Ordnung of the specific Amish order may dictate matters of dress as explicit as the length of a skirt or the width of a seam. ( Full Answer )
I don't think so. In this area (Lancaster, PA), they have several choices for color. White shirts are worn for important celebrations.
No, because they do not have any. They swim in their underwear, but their underwear is very baggy and non exposing. They also tend to only swim as one gender group, not mixing into coed swimming. They are also very private and do not like outside English to view them swimming, so their swimmin…g holes can have make shift curtains around them. ( Full Answer )
The answer in NO, but they take baths regularly, using most of time a soap they make. The Amish believe natural smells and natural looks, they do not believe in altering what God has made, nor trying to improve on natural world around you.
There is no cut and dry answer to this question, both genders are compelled not to seek mates outside their faith, especially outsider English people in fear they will leave their Amish society. You can only date as Amish person another baptized member, to be baptized is to make a verbal contract… obligation to the community and Amish society to stay. But do Amish woman and men date outsiders, yes, mostly in secrete. If it is known that the Amish person is dating a outsider, everything will be factor in letting such Amish person continue, from the desire the outsider interested in joining, to the Amish persons parents, but the greatest determination factor will come down from highest elder in the community. If a Amish person regardless of their age, does something like date a outsider, against the denial the elder, they first will be shunned and if it continues excommunicated with nothing and no family ties.

I seen that term used, referring wrongly, to the belief that Amish are successful at business matters. It is now a gimmick that con artists use to get your money, to say they will teach you Amish work practice, as a way of running your company to get ahead. Amish for one are suffering in this econom…y like ever one else, and a great many need government aid to get by, that is why they are diversifying from farming alone to other business. And for second matter, only Amish in the United States get away with using minors as their main workforce, unless your talking about third world country. Amish also depend on handouts, they act as large communal community to some degree helping each other over hard times, and they are all ways seeking aid from their English outsider neighbors that say they will repay and never do. These are not good business practices, nor are they ethical or even legal to the common man. So "Amishism" is a rouge term, to express a false idea that Amish have good business sense, and some fraudulent person is willing to sell you those secrets. ( Full Answer )

Yes. The same underware as everyone else. However, they never hang it on the wash line outside, for the sake of modesty.
The answer is not that simple. I have been with many different Amish Women. Some of them wore a type of home sewn tight t-shirt type under garment, and others just let their melons flap freely in the breeze. But my favorite is the one Amish lady I was with who wore a tight spandex body suit under he…r Amish clothing. She had several body piercings and was the wildest ride I have ever had. She just used her plain outer Amish "shell" to conceal the crazy nympho that lurked underneath. ( Full Answer )
Hell no, they get it for free. And that's no small thing because no one bakes like an Amish chick. And not just the white stuff: rye, multigrain, and raisin are no problem, and all of it is delicious.

That is the only way to wear a tuxedo properly! The suspenders (braces) are buttoned in an they help the pants (trousers) hang correctly. The cummerbund should be worn semi-tight and with pleats up. It is put on after the braces are in place and it covers the waistband. If you choose to wear a vest,… you should also wear braces even though they will be hidden. ( Full Answer )

Try wearing a plain button-up shirt and find suspenders you clip onto the skirt. This would look great with Docs, Vans, flats, strap-y sandals, etc. and a cute floral skirt.
What I did, was: poke out the lenses of cheap 'ray-ban' looking sunglasses, and put scotch tape in the middle. Then wear as short of shorts you can with knee sock and a button up shirt. If your dad has a bow-tie, that would be cute too :D
Louis likes to wear them for fashion because his bum is so big I know his pants don't need to be up anymore!
I wouldn't exactly call what the amish wear "uniforms." It is a sort of dress code, though. Each Amish community has a kind of rulebook called an Ordnung which dictates much of Amish daily life. Ordnungs are different in each community. In some communities, the Ordnung is as strict as to determine t…he type of thread used to stitch the clothing. When it comes to the clothing, only young children can wear more vibrant colors, like pink, depending on the community's Ordnung. When children get older the girls have to wear bonnets that their hair (in a bun) is "tucked" into. Women always wear dresses, and I believe they also wear aprons most of the time. Men wear pants and long sleeved shirts (depending on weather?) with suspenders. Men often wear hats, as most farmers wear. Married men grow beards. Women don't shave legs. The list goes on and on. If you want to learn more you can look up an Amish documentary on Netflix- more interesting than it sounds. ( Full Answer )
Yes, Santa likes suspenders and he wears them often. Especially theones with little candy canes on them that Mrs. Claus made for him.

The purpose of suspender belts are to hold ones pants up and keep them from falling. Many men wear suspender belts as a fashion accessory, underneath a formal suit.
No. If there is a good reason to take one's hat off, it's no big deal, but you wouldn't work in the fields or barns, or work construction jobs with a naked head.
The purpose of wearing suspenders is to hold up pants or trousers. Suspenders are straps that are worn over the shoulders. The straps can be either elasticized at the attachment ends or the straps can be entirely elasticized. The straps typically form a Y or X shape at the back.
Amish life is very traditional, almost like life was 150 years ago. This means that gender roles are also very traditional. For women, custom dictates that they will not have careers or work outside the home. Their primary role is as wife and mother. Women are expected to perform domestic duties, su…ch as cooking and cleaning and sewing. Amish girls are allowed to go to school, but only till the 8th grade. (The same is true for Amish boys.) Unmarried young women are allowed to be teachers, but early marriage and having a family are the norm. For the most part, the men have the same gender roles you might have seen on the frontier in the mid-1800s. Men are considered the head of the family, and make the major decisions; women are expected to obey them. Because men are the ones who support the family, they are the ones who work outside the home, in occupations like farming, building and construction of fences or homes (but only within the community), artisan and craft-work, and raising and caring for animals (since the Amish reject most modern technology, the care of horses is important, since they are used for transportation). Men are also the religious leaders and direct the worship services. ( Full Answer )
