As a man, you’ll want to look smashing anytime you step out in your neatly ironed well-tucked in shirt and trousers. But you’ve got no idea on how to keep your shirt tucked in.

A few hours of active work and your shirt starts making you look so uncool; every now and then, you’re tucking it in. It kills the swag! Is there a solution? Yes.

This tutorial will teach you how to tuck in a shirt and keep it tucked in always without bunching.

Whether you are a skinny guy or you are wearing a loose shirt that is too big for you, you’ll learn how to tuck in that shirt appropriately.

You’ll be needing just a simple clothing accessory… A Shirt Stay.

What is a Shirt Stay?

It’s simply an elastic band with clips that hold your shirt in place. One end is clipped to the tucked in shirt and the other end is clipped to your socks. And oh, there’s always that awkward moment when you need to roll your socks up because it rolled down. The shirt stay holds both the socks and your shirt in place, so you can do whatever you want without your shirt getting untucked.

Shirt stays are otherwise referred to as shirt garters, shirttail garters, or shirt tuckers. The three slightly differ from each other in terms of appearance. That notwithstanding, they all serve one purpose. They keep your shirts in position all day long.

How to tuck in your shirt: The Military Tuck

The military tuck is a technique of tucking in a shirt often used by military officers. It helps keep their shirt tucked in always, although not as good as a shirt stay will do. One important thing to note, however, is that the shirt must not be too large by the sides.

Here’s a video tutorial on how to tuck in the military tuck.
