Garment Doctor: How to Keep Your Shirt Tucked

View Comments

“Hey Guys,

How do you keep your shirts properly tucked-in all day? Every time I raise my hand or reach up for something at the office, I have to hit the bathroom to unzip and re-tuck my whole shirt.

Surely you have a better solution for this everyday problem?

Thanks,

David”

Hey David, great question.

Believe me, we understand your frustration. Good news is, we have a simple solution.

All of my bespoke trousers are made with a rubber grip-tape sewn to the interior of the waistband. In combination with a well tailored shirt and snug pant waist, the rubber strip provides friction and tension to keep the shirt from slipping out of the trousers.

For non-custom pants, I often have my tailor sew-in these rubber strips. Some tailors carry them, otherwise you might have to pick up a small spool from your local fabric/trim shop.

As with many things in life, sometimes the best solution is the simplest one.

Thanks, as always, for reading. 

Yours in style,

Dan Trepanier
