Tip-of-the-Day: Rubber Band Man

Here's a pet peeve of mine...You know when have the perfect shirt tuck-in, all the way around, perfectly placed...then you bend over or reach up for something, and your shirt pulls out at the sides and billows around your waist? Yeah, I hate that.

The fact of the matter is, with your everyday movements your shirt is bound to pull out of your pants and look sloppy around the waist. However, there is a (very clever) solution to avoiding this.

Have your tailor put a small, ribbed rubber strip on your trousers' inner waistband. This "sticky strip" this will keep your shirt from sliding out of your pants.

My boys at Michael Andrews Bespoke include this feature in all of their pants...and trust me, it works great!

No more need to continuously re-tuck that pesky shirt tail.

Yours in style, SB
