Chapter 84:17
Laws of Carrying: Clothing & Jewelry

17. [The following laws apply when] a garment has two straps or laces which are tied to close it, or when it is closed using two clasps, and one of them is torn off. Although the one that remains on the garment is not significant (because its not useable), nevertheless, if one intends to mend the other one, the one that remains is not considered simply an extension of the garment, rather, it is like a "masa" (an object being carried), and it is forbidden to wear the garment out into the public domain on Shabbos.

If, however, one does not intend to mend the broken piece, the one strap or clasp that remains is not considered a significant [independent] entity, but rather an extension of the garment. Hence, one may wear the garment out into the public domain.

If the remaining strap or clasp is valuable, like a silk strap or a silver clasp, it is not considered insignificant (and thus an extension of the garment) even when one does not intend to mend the broken one. Hence, one may not wear the garment out into the public domain on Shabbos.
