  • Keeping your Uniform shirt tucked in

    Good evening,

    I don't know the exact name of this item. Basically you clip it on to your uniform top, then clip it to your socks. It is suppose to keep your shirt tucked in and looking good....instead of having it bunched up and hanging over your duty belt.

    Any Officers/Recruits utilize this? How does it feel, is it comfortable?

    I was thinking about getting a pair...I just started the Academy and am having a hard time with my shirt, especially after just getting a vest.

    Thanks for your opinions, be safe.

    They are called shirt stays.

      They are great but can pinch your leg hair on occassions. This is what I use.

        Hope the shirt stay does not come undone and snap you in the man area.

          If that happens, then you're wearing them too tight.

              I have used both (no not at the same time!) I prefer the one that fordman linked, easy and efficient. For me the "stirrup kind" were kind of a PITA. Plus with the belt style that fordman linked I found easier to take a deuce when the time came.

                I almost bought a hidden tailor once but as I was playing with it before purchasing it fell apart. That kind of turned me away. It seemed real cheap. Also, i have seen officers with the hidden tailor and their shirt still comes out and then you can see the weird white belt.

                      I first bought a hidden tailor, and it snapped as soon as I put it on. I traded it in for shirt stays.
                      The stays have come undone before, but never have they "snapped" or hurt my leg hairs. I heard a tip once. For a more secure fit on the uniform side of the stays, get rid of the little buttons and use coins. I used nickels. The stays do not come undone any more.

                        1+ for the Vanguard Shirt Stays

                        I love these; they keep my shirt tucked during my whole shift, even with getting in and out of the vehicle. At first they were a bit uncomfortable, but once I broke them in, I could not tell they are even on. I tried the hidden tailor but did not work for me.

                          Go with the Vanguard stirrup-style stays. Helpfull hint; cut small holes in the bottom of your shirt along the creases where the stays attach. They will never come undone.

                            I had one that did that. I will agree that the button is not the best design. I have had three in 2 years. I had one break after a week but I was able to return it.

                              As a basketball and football official, we used a rubber belt (any store that sells sports official clothing will have them) that went over your shirt and underneath your pants. It is much quicker than the shirt stays when getting ready.

                              How do you think officials move their arms so much and their shirts never come untucked?
