    >Design on the left
    Get this kind. Avoid the ones that have all 3 straps together branching out from the center.
    You want the straps separated, with one in front, one on the side, and one in the back.

    >Design on the right
    When I tried this kind, they were Y shaped. One clip on the socks, branching out into two.
    One went to the front, one went to the back.
    This caused the front of the shirt to have straps pulling on it from opposite directions, which caused the bottom button of the shirt to come off and creating a very odd look at the belt line.

      shirt stays changed my life

      i use shirt stays nearly every day at work to keep my shirts tucked in and tight. i use the type that clip to the socks and has 2 clips on the shirt. to ‘s point they have to be situated properly or it can create an odd look, but once you’ve figured it out you’ll never want to go back to wearing button ups without them.

    definitely worth it, once you adjust them properly, you don’t even feel them.
    paired best with suspenders.

    make it easy on yourself to stay crisp and tidy, people will wonder how you do it, and respect you more for it.

    Definitely worth. I personally prefer the right style just because it also helps keep your socks up and left is somewhat uncomfortable and tends to ride up if you’re skinny but obviously your mileage may vary

    Nope, i tried both and they suck. Just buy shirts with the correct shoulder, armhole size and do a military tuck. For socks, buys good over the calf socks or pants that have cuffed hem + long enough to cover.

      you cannot squat and move and stay tidy with just a military tuck.

      also, the confidence that comes with knowing that everything will stay exactly in place and not ride up or billow at all is a benefit you can’t put a price on.

        same logic with people who cry about arm restriction when wearing suits. You wear dressed shirt and socks, potentially a suit jacket, in order to look professional and neat, not to play football or lifting. Also how long does it take to fix up your shirt tuck during toilet break?

          you shouldn’t be wearing suits you can’t move freely in, and when you move freely, you want everything to stay where you put it, so use shirt stays, it’s that simple.

          everything you’re talking about is cope, heck off officebabby

    I’ve worn them as part of my military service uniform. First, get a shirt that is actually tailored and fitted to your waist size and not some billowy off the rack shit. That will do you better than any stays ever will.

    As for actual stays, get the stirrup type. The leg garters will ride up and you’ll have to make multiple trips to the bathroom to pull them back down. The sock clip one *WILL* one day come loose and pop you in the balls. It won’t happen often, but it will happen enough that it’s a thing. I also find that they print a little bit more through pants sometimes. The tugging on the socks can also be annoying. The stirrups just work the best honestly. I paid like $5 for mine, don’t buy fancy ones, they aren’t better.

    I have a pair with a design like the ones on the left.
    I wear them every time I want a clean tuck. They are uncomfy for 5 minutes whenever you put them on, then you don’t even realize they are there anymore.

      >They are uncomfy for 5 minutes
      why exactly? is there a better material or are they all made from plastic?
      I really need something like this but second option won’t work with short socks

    This is a problem created by darted/slim dress shirts and low rise trousers. Fuller cut shirt & trousers with a natural waist rise will give a more natural and forgiving silhouette without any need for cuck garters.

      Shirt stays are old as heck anon, they’ve been a thing since the Renaissance period.
      No matter how high your trousers and no matter how low your shirt goes, it will shift and rise as you move around. It might not annoy you, it might not be that bad, but it will rise.
