It isn't that big of a deal.

That's what I do, as well as wearing an UnderArmour sleeveless compression shirt. Stays in the whole game.

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




As some have suggested, tucking both of my shirts into my compression shorts helps. I'm a pretty fit guy too, so I have to buy one size shirt to adequately fit the top half of my top half (shoulders and chest), but this leaves a lot of shirt fabric in the midsection/lower back. I've found that, since I had all of my shirts tailored (taken in down the side seams - including the side-panel shirts), there is essentially no bunched-up fabric to come out any more, so they never come out anymore - at all, really. And my pants, at the waist, are extremely snug as well.

I got new pants this year and have had the same trouble. Spent my first game doing the Welmer. Had the pants taken in and that worked for a week or two, until I lost some weight. Then I got out the flex belt, and that worked pretty well. But then I lost more weight, and now I have to wear the flex belt to keep my pants up. Probably time to get them taken in again.

Interesting Velcro Set-up

I was working w/ a new partner last week and noticed that he had a couple patches of velcro sewn on the very bottom of his shirt in the front, and then the matching patches in the front of his pants.

Not sure if it worked well or not, but his shirt was always tucked in.

Myself I either tuck into my UnderArmor or just in my pants and don't seem to have a problem.

Garters! Ouch! I wore those in the military and there were a few times where I "felt" a snap! No way would I ever wear garters! I recommend the rubber belt (I forget what it's called). I had the same problem with my shirt coming untucked, but with this belt, it stays tucked in.

Seriously??? I just never pictured you as "non-vertically challenged". BTW, I'm 6'5", and I always buy the extra length shirts.
