Before Daisy Mae

 L'il Abner must have used these to keep his one suspender up.

Caving to reader pressure Al Capp finally gave in and let L'il Abner Yokum and the woman who had pursued him for 18 long years get hitched. 

Because of the huge popularity of the the comic strip that ran for 43 years it was probably not a coincidence that the image chosen by the TipTop company closely resembled
Dogpatch's most eligible bachelor.

We found no evidence that the company is still in business so perhaps taking a wife really is the most reliable way to keep from losing one's buttons. We acknowledge however that some would say otherwise.

I took a husband, and we are both losing our buttons!
