How to Keep Your Dress Shirt Tucked In

Posted on Feb 23, 2022

There’s nothing worse than standing up during an important moment and having your dress shirt untucked from your pants. Looking crisp and clean in front of your colleagues and boss is crucial in the workplace. If this has happened to you before, you’re not alone. This happens more often than you think. The truth of the matter is, even some of the best-tucked shirts can become disheveled and untuck throughout the day.

The good news is, ACUMEN has the solution to keeping your dress shirt tucked in all day. 

If you’ve ever struggled to keep your dress shirt tucked in all day long, here are a few things you can do to keep it nice and tight. 

The Military Tuck

One of the first ways you can keep your dress shirt tucked in properly is by learning how to do the military tuck. Starting with your shirt untucked and your pants unbuttoned, begin tucking in your shirt around your waist. Tuck it in as far as you can, making sure everything is nice and tight.

Next, run your thumbs from front to back removing wrinkles from the front.  Pull the excess material to the back and make two pleats with your thumbs.  The important part, flatten that excess material into a pleat and tuck it back into your waistband, and there you go, you have the military tuck. This should help keep your shirt tucked in.

The Best Solution: Shirt Stays

Tail garters, otherwise known as suspenders or shirt stays, have been around since the 1800s and there’s a simple reason for that. They work. If you’re unfamiliar with shirt stays, here’s how they work. You just clip one end of the clasp to the bottom of your shirt and the other end attaches to your socks, so your shirt stays in place all day. ACUMEN’s Shirt Stays are unique and are part of the patent-pending Set.  ACUMEN Shirt Stays are easier and more secure than traditional shirt stays and will ensure your shirt stays tucked and you don’t look disheveled when it matters the most!

The Quality and Fit of Your Shirt Matters

You can tuck your shirt in any way you want, but if you don’t have a proper fitting shirt made from high-quality material, it will likely untuck at some point in the day.
