Hosenträger (Suspenders)

Feldhose are designed to be used with Hosenträger (suspenders). Typical suspenders of the period had leather tabs that buttoned to the trousers.  We do not believe there was an official military issued version, the army often bought items like these on the open market in whatever pattern or quantity they could acquire.
