    I wear the Hidden Tailor.

    All right old timers on O/R....who remembers this topic coming up before a few years ago. An old member (banned) said the Hidden Tailor made you look like a "fart sack full of doorknobs."

    I will wear the hidden tailor from time to time. I used to not have a problem of my shirt coming untucked. As I loose weight though, the damn thing untucks itself while I'm walking!

    I wear nothing, the shirt stays we used in the Marines have a tendency of snapping balls in a foot chase, and we end up wrestling or running somewhere every night so I don't even bother. Although I have been out of uniform for the past 2 years or so I don't bother, I may throw them on when I put on my dress uniform and am getting an award that is about it.

    I don't use any of that stuff. Between the underarmour and the bodyarmour, I just make sure my duty belt is snug, and if I have to retuck, then I stop for a cup of coffee. I do have to get my shirts altered due to my neck size. That might be why it usually isn't a problem.
    The six o'clock rule
    I tell them to act according to the six o'clock rule, a phrase that causes most of them to say, "Huh?"
    I tell them to use this little test before they decide to do something. If they were to do what they're thinking about, and it became the lead story on the six o'clock news, would they be proud? Would their department be proud, and would their family be proud? It's a simple way to live your life both personally and professionally.

    So, you bunch of sissys wear garter belts? Do they hold your pad in place, too?

    I don't do anything, and my shirt stays 90% of the time. Sometimes i'll have to retuck it a bit after a resistance.

    Some guys out here use those elastic bands that clip onto your socks.

    Those elastic bands are otherwise known as "nut crackers" when they snap. Been there, done that, wont ever happen again.

    I use them, but I run the band down the outside of my thigh to the side of my sock. I've had them come loose, but they don't hit my man parts. I also set them so that when I stand there is very little tension on them. If you try to pull my shirt out, it will pull the tail back in. In the back, if I bend over, it pulls down. There's some kind of rubber on the inside of the trousers that's supposed to help. It catches the shirt sometimes. I undo the clasp on my belt, lift my trousers by the belt, and the shirt drops right back in place.

    Our Dept's pants have a triple row of 'rubber texture feeling crap' sewn into the waist line. They just bite on the the shirt and I have never had an 'untucked' situation. We had the same pants at Loomis, and I love them.. no extra apparatus to add to the shit I gotta clip on anyway...

    Just looked, but no brand name in the trousers... just "Assembled in Honduras" ... that figures

    For me, it's because of my neck size (18 or 18 1/2). The uniform companies think that because my neck is that big, I must be a fat-azz...And thankfully I am not. All that extra material on the sides just don't fit right and promotes the untucking of shirts, hence the tailoring.

    I have wanted to contact the makers and ask them about this most shirts over about a 17 neck come with a 100 waist.
    Lead from the front and always remember those who came first.
