A Conversation for Hosiery

I understand that suspenders and the suspender belt are UK English terms. For the benefit of our American cousins, this is known as a garter belt and should not be confused with the suspenders sometimes worn by American gentlement to hold their socks up.

Indeed, sock suspenders were in an earlier draft, but got lost along the way...why a garter belt when they are nothing to do with garters, I wonder? And isn't it odd that there is so much difference between our terminology for underclothes?
