Men used to wear sleeve garters. These were very popular more than 100 years ago at a time when  manufacturers only made shirts with a standard long sleeve length.

So the garters as you can see from the picture of a barbershop quartet below not only shortened the sleeves but kept them cleaner when the men were working.

Today sleeve garters are still useful even if clothing now comes in different sizes. Many people just don't fit the standard sizing models used by clothing manufacturers.  Petite women can wear a much prettier version of Sleeve Garters from Harriet Carter (link no longer works). These elasticated faux pearl cuffs add a touch of glamor to a functional accessory!
