Hmm, my pants fit fine. They aren't loose in the waist.

A co-official recommended those suspender type things. They seem like they'd get annoying though. And that flex-belt always creeps up and starts to show on the outside of my pants...or am I not wearing it right?

I have a 6-pack so I have no belly to "help keep the shirt in place."

Does anyone have any other ideas to help keep your shirt tucked in?




I use the flex belt I got from honig's. I really like it for 2 reasons...

1. It keeps my shirt tucked in
2. Later in the season after all the pounds I've lost from working games, it keeps my pants up...

You wear it with the nubby part away from your body...that holds your pants in place.

Six pack or pony keg?

I've got at least a 12-pack myself, but I'm working on it.

As for the flex belt, it only works for me with my sansabelts (I also have a pair of pants from Honigs), because they have a "groove" on the bottom of the wasteband that I can fit the belt into - it does the dual job of holding my pants up (they are a hair big now that I've lost weight) and keeping my shirt in.

I have the same problem as you, though (creeping up) in my other pair of pants. They're tighter so I don't have any problem with them otherwise, but I can't wear the belt with them.

I have worked with a guy who had his wife sew a piece of old shirt from the bottom back and then connects like a babies onezie in front with snaps...work great for him. However I suspect he gooses himself everytime he has a call.....

So why would your shirt hang out?

You're not wearing hip-hop low rider pants.

Just get the tall size shirts. If you're only 6'0 you shouldn't have any problems with these coming out. I never do.

Lace

Sew some nice, dainty lace onto the hem of your shirt. You will be sure to keep it tucked, always.

The "suspender" things and the garters are the same. They connect to your shirt and then either your socks or there is a kind that loops around your foot. If placed correctly, they work and will not bother you. You will never worry about your shirt coming out of your pants.
