One of the very important features of any trendy man's appearance is that he
appears to be extremely well-dressed. Shirts, on the other hand,
might be a pain to keep track of. It's difficult to keep shirts tucked in
all the time because they're rarely fitted to our measurements. So, whenever
you find them getting loose or tucked out on either side, make an excuse to
tuck them in. That's a pain.
Is there another way? — You could be perplexed. Yes!
What are shirt stays? Shirt stays are elasticized devices that keep
your shirt tucked in and perfectly positioned. Across one end,
the elastic is attached to the bottom of your pants or socks, and on
the other end, it is attached to the bottom of your shirt. The
shirt is kept in place by the elastic pulls on both ends.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF SHIRT STAYS
Delthium Shirt Stays are elastic straps that connect the bottom of a shirt to the thigh;
secured by three clips at the top: one for the front, one for the side, and one
for the back of the shirt. They are often used in the military to prevent the
shirt from untucking during the course of the day. However, many law
enforcement, sports officials, movie actors, and professional business and
sales people wear them. Think live-streaming PGA Golf or World Cup
Cricket, all that bending and stretching, and all those “tucked in” shirts… you
never see those guys untucked!
Delthium Shirt Stays have a unique, Design that won’t loosen, don’t fall off, and
are fully adjustable, ensuring a comfortable fit for all-day wear.
#2 STRAIGHT SHIRT STAYS
This is the most basic and also the cheapest type of shirt stays. This is often
packaged in a set of four elastic ribbons with clips on both ends. There will
be two shirt stays on each leg. Each shirt stay is secured to the
shirt's tail. One comes from the front, while the other comes from behind.
It is worn on the outside of the leg rather than the inside since it
is more convenient.
#3 Y STYLE SHIRT STAYS
These are an improvement over straight shirt stays since they include two clips to
keep the shirt in place and one clip to attach the socks to the other end of
#4 STIRRUP SHIRT STAYS
The clips on the socks are probably the most troublesome of the two
methods discussed above. That part of the difficulty is solved with
stirrup dress shirt stays. Rather than being clipped to the leg, the
bottom section of this type of shirt stay is worn around it like a
saddle. When compared to the previous two solutions, removing the clips at one
end provides some improvement and convenience. The clips mentioned above may
still cause issues.
Different Ways To Tuck In Shirts
A good tuck doesn't have any wrinkles or muffin-topping. The front of your body looks smooth and flat. Your gig line should also be clean and centred. A well-centred and clean gig line divides your body in an even proportion, which gives the impression that
you pay attention to detail. The less excess fabric you're dealing with, the
better. So make sure your shirt is the right size fit to begin with.
The Basic Tuck
We’ve all made use of this technique at some point in our lives. Young boys associate the Basic Tuck with the concept of “tucked in”. It’s pretty straightforward and easy to make into a habit. First, put on your pants but keep them down before wearing your
shirt. The next part is simple- tuck the shirt in, pull the pants up, and button or close the zipper and tighten your belt.
The Military Tuck
The Military Tuck is widely used among men in the military. It’s a combination of the Basic Tuck and additional manoeuvres to make the technique more effective. First, put on your pants, tuck in your shirt and close the zipper- only leave the button open. Next,
keep your legs evenly apart and use your thumb and index finger to pinch any
excess fabric from the side seams. Once done, close the button and tighten your
belt. Check that all folds and creases are evened out.
The Underwear Tuck
The Underwear Tuck works every time- it’s a simple and logical method. The problem with wearing undershirts is eliminated, which the first two methods don’t solve. This
technique uses layering- undershirt, underwear, shirt and pants. Each layer is
tucked in under the item that follows it. At the end, you just adjust your
belt. Friction is used in this method to keep the shirt in place and prevent it
from going untucked.
