The Military Tuck – How to Prevent Your Shirts From Bunching

20 Feb

Ever wanted to figure out how to stop your nice shirts from blousing and bunching up. You have three options, buy slim fit shirts, get your shirts tailored, or use the military tuck.This method  is to take the excess fabric from the front and back of the shirt and hide it in the side-seams. Here a how to from agoodman.com.au

Steps:

  1. Unbutton pants and place the base of your shirt neatly downward. Your shirt should not be scrunched into your pants as they’ll easily come untucked.
  2. Pinch the shirt at the side-seams and pull tight to collect the excess fabric.
  3. Fold this excess fabric backwards. You want both back and front of your shirt to sit flush against your body; no bunching (you haven’t pinched enough fabric) nor pulling (you’ve pinched too much fabric).
  4. Button your pants up, tightly securing the folds against your body.
  5. Adjust if necessary to neaten the shirt.

It helps to think of this method as placing your pants over your shirt, rather than tucking your shirt into your pants. Obviously, this technique only works for shirts that mostly fit, and just have some excess fabric in the body. If the shirt is a size (or more) too large, this method won’t work and it will need to be altered by a tailor to make it fit correctly. From A Goodman
