Two links where you can see the white suspenders that I'm very keen on.
I'm pretty sure those are fight straps. The strap is sewn into the jersey itself, then hooks onto the pants. This prevents people from pulling your jersey over your head and getting a huge advantage during fight. Or, in Rob Ray's case, prevents you from taking off your jersey so your opponent has nothing to hold on to.
