i have long legs, smaller waist. the length of the pants i need are larges, the waist size I would need to forgo suspenders are mediums, which don't cover a good 4" of thigh above the knee.

I tried looping the suspenders around my head in an X after watching an overweight player do the same, but it felt like i was being strangled, no matter how loose i got them.
In the 80s they made a strap you could attach across the front of your suspenders. There is a pic of Gretzky holding the cup without his jersey on where you can really see it.
