How do people deal with tucked-in shirts on a regular basis? I don't mean that in a fashion sense or even strictly a comfort sense. I mean it in a purely pragmetic, functional way. How do you keep tucked-in shirts tucked in? If I raise my arms above about 45 degrees, they start to pull out. It feels like I'd need at least 18 extra inches of shirt to prevent this, and only then with renfaire-levels of blousing going on. And even with a lot of blousing, there seems to be a natural ratcheting effect which pulls the shirt out sooner rather than later. I don't see everyone else constantly retucking shirts, much less going around with any blousing at all. I don't understand how they can even walk with shirts tucked in that tightly. Is my torso just unfortunately shaped? Do most people just not bend or lift their arms for most of the day? I did pleasantly discover that suspenders helped a lot. I'm unclear on the mechanism, however, and obviously that isn't the normal solution. Is this one of those basic life skills that I missed out on as a kid when I was going through my nihilistic escapism phase, obsessed with nuclear war? Seems like it was about that time when everyone switched to boxers without telling me.
