Hello gentlemen, I thought I may get soem advice on finding a good fitting undershirt brand; I've had trouble with the ones I have found ( hanes and Tommy Hilfiger) not wanting to stay tucked in. I was wondering if a Large-Tall type size may be in order. Im 6ft tall 182 lbs with a slight pudge( Im workin on losing it!) whenever I wear a dress shirt my undershirt always works untucked after a while of sitting and standing, anyone else have this problem?

Thanks

I have the same problem, but when I purchased the Big & Tall sizes, the sleeves of the undershirt were too long and would sometimes show when I wore a short-sleeved overshirt.

Tuck your undershirt into your underwear, your dress shirt into your pants.  That will slow the creep up, but it's really the mechanics of standing and sitting.  Unless  you're willing to wear shirt stays for your undershirts, it's going to continue.

heya brian, 

wanted to quickly chime in here and see if i could help you with your question.

at 6' tall and 182, it sounds like you're kind of slender. my guess is that you'd likely be wearing a size medium undershirt based on your chest size -- maybe size large -- but more than likely size medium. 

there are only a couple of brands that offer "tall" sizes in size medium -- they are stafford and landsend. though, sierra trading post also offers a collection of "long-tail" t-shirts (undershirts) that are cut longer for better tuck-ability.

all that said, there is a good number of newer undershirt companies that offer longer undershirts, and i have some resources on my website that can help you locate them.

out of courtesy to the aom community, i won't place links to my site within this comment reply, but feel free to drop by my site (or google) and search for "long undershirts". you should find a link to an article on my undershirtguy website.

hope the above information helps!

best,

tug

well, my friend -- i actually don't sell anything -- it's just a resource blog about undershirts (:

though i'm sure my advertisers would appreciate your business!

Constantly, I have the same build, except for the stomach, which mine is ripped like Hercules (not really but it sounds good).  I've actually taken to wearing the colored t-shirts instead of undershirts.  Maybe too metro for some but it's ok for me.

thanks for all the help, I didnt know if it would be wiser to find a large-tall size OR locate a brand that runs longer regularly!

I'm about your size (a little taller) and I have also had a hard time funding undershirts that fit well. I don't know if there are any Costco stores near where you live, but surprisingly enough, their in-house undershirts (Kirkland) are the best-fitting and highest-quality undershirts that I've ever owned. Good luck!

Duluth Trading (and others) make long tail undershirts for precisely this reason. 

I've had reasonable luck with Calvin Klein shirts (I'm your height and build, it sounds like). Hanes and FotL always come untucked for me. 

Hanes shirts tend to shrink in my experience and I've had similar issues with those undershirts (I'm 5'11"). Jockey shirts don't shrink (or at least not enough to create an issue). Just my two cents.

I have these problems with my v-neck undershirts. I prefer A-shirts or "wife-beaters" because they are sleeveless and I can buy them extra large and not worry as there are no sleeves to extend beyond my shirt.

I am 6ft, 182lbs. Buy Costco brand Kirkland white tees. Strong, durable, long lasting. If they only made a v-neck......

I recently bought Jockey undershirts and I cannot complain one bit. I have Hanes that I wear when I run out of the Jockey's in between washes and they are by far inferior. Also a good tip that I did not see anyone mention, tuck your undershirt into your boxers before you put on your top shirt. It keeps everything in it's proper place without bunching at the bottom. Hope this helps!
