"They where a great idea before the ability to order shirts to a custom length when access to tailors was hard or too expensive. If you want a good fitted shirt order it.  If you want to look like you ordered a shirt to long, use them. "

"I agree, they are not meant to be an accessory of showmanship but one of necessity. It is far cheaper to get a good pair of arm bands and use them then it is to pay to have all your shirts tailored."

"They've been made of steel for a while. I've got two pairs of steel sleeve-garters. Personally I reckon they'd be more comfortable than cloth elastic ones (and certainly longer lasting)."

Hey, I'm really glad to see another guy on this board defending chastity! I'm also glad to see you provided Alex Romo a link to chastity.com -- that's an awesome site! You can't go wrong with Jason and Crystalina Evert! Of course, whether or not he'll read it is another matter. At any rate, keep up the good fight! God bless.
