These things are great…until one snaps and hit your left nut. I teach science shirt. Then again maybe it’s not a problem because those who would wear this…have no nuts. Jack Brady well if you never used shirt stays in 7 years you weren’t in the Marines I’m sure other branches are different but we had them on every time we were in our dress uniforms and every time I worried about them hitting me in the nuts… every step made me nervous. We don’t wear these exact things and if I saw any of my buddy’s wearing these in uniform I’d probably make fun of him we have shirt stays not these weird things.. Ours don’t look like that lol. My husband is a retired Marine and I just showed him. His comment is – much better than the ones we wore. The ones that went from socks length of leg up to shirt. Ones that if they came undone at the sock you got shot in the privates (LOL I cleaned his comment up some there). Carol Vance Palmer: Yes, standard Marine Corps issue. I’d still rather use the ‘old’ style, rather than the band around my upper thigh…and, I’m sure Private Palmer knows that ‘pain is weakness leaving the body’…SF Marine!
I teach science shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweatshirt, ladies tee.
Ronnie Grove, it proves that Marines are concerned about their appearance. I teach science shirt. You won’t see a Marine with saggy clothes, unevenly tucked clothes…. they are always looking sharp and clean. These might be nothing new. But they appear to have been an exclusive item for the military. Perhaps making them available to civilians is the new part? They’ve got the “old school” style (bottom of the shirt, to the top of the sock), the “stirrup” style (bottom of the shirt, wraps around the arches or heels of your feet), and this newer style where they strap your thighs. The Marine Corps calls every variation shirt stays lol. And like everyone else is saying, they’re not new haha. The army didn’t have shirt stays…but they have Battle buddy rubbing lotion, O.D green sunglasses, Ranger hair gel, every colour berets to match their skivvy shirt, and lots of badges and patches like boy scouts….Go Army Doggies!! Oh yeah, those are my favourite attach em to your sock and bottom shirt and they rub out and pull on every single leg hair on the way down.
