KNEE or FULL LENGTH DRAWERS
WHAT you have a right to expect of a garter is that it be (I) COMFORTABLE (2) SECURE (3) DURABLE.
The “ BRIGHTON,” being pure silk, cannot bind or irritate the leg. That’s COMFORT.
The “ BRIGHTON ” FLAT CLASP—flat as a coin—cannot become accidentally unfastened. That’s SECURITY.
The “BRIGHTON” is made of the strongest and most wearful webs woven. That’s DURABILITY.
“ BRIGHTON ” FLAT CLASP GARTERS are to be had in all standard colors, also in fancy striped and figured effects.
