    Undershirts?

    I always carry IWB, and have to wear an undershirt in order to keep from being rubbed raw(read love handles). But I have a problem keepin the undershirt tucked in. I heard there are certain shirts you can buy that are longer just for this purpose. Any suggestions?

    I really like the 5.11 tshirts. The tails are long and the material (cotton) is made of wick moisture....

    I am fairly long-waisted, meaning I've got puny treads for legs and a very tall top side. That makes it difficult for finding shirts that work. Since I was 16, nothing has been nearly long enough. Have purchased "tall" varieties since then. Those can add another 2-3". So can golf shirts, which have to be longer given the twisting of the golf swing. For some shirt options, consider Cabela's, which offers a large variety of sizing (including "tall").

    I wear A shirts or what's commonly called wife beaters.. LOL!! They are usually very long and I have a long waist as well. One thing I have found that helps it to tuck the under shirt in my underwear. It usually has a somewhat rubber like waist band so the undershirt stays tucked much better. Try it I think you'll see it works.

    I wear Hanes, the ones that Michael Jordan advertises. They are good shirts and long.

    I wear "wife beater" shirts as well, but sometimes the plain white Hanes T-shirts work for me too, but sometimes they don't always stay tucked in.

    I wear a Cool Max T-Shirt under my Vest, but if I'm not wearing a Vest then I like a Hanes cotton T-Shirt.

    I doubt you'd want to go the shirt stay route just to keep an undershirt tucked.

    How about something like this? "Hidden Tailor" by Flex-belt

    I like the cheap walmart brand under armour...They are long and stay tucked well. I am 6' tall and weigh 260 and the 2XL work great. A secondary benefit is my back doesn't get as sore wearing them either because of the gut support, I guess....

    "wife beaters" tucked into the underwear never ride up for me. You've got an over shirt on, so those pink polka dot undies you've got on are still your little secret.

    I wear Hanes white tees under my work shirts and they don't stay tucked very well, but it's what my company provides. For casual wear I usually wear Smartwool or Patagonia capilene undershirts which fit snugly, wick sweat, and stay tucked in. They are also freakin expensive, walmart under armor does about the same thing but won't last as long.

    While I do usually have an undershirt tucked in, my iwb holster has a flap that goes between me and the gun and even with no undershirt I am quite comfortable. My holster is an El Paso Saddlery made for my Kahr CW9 and was worth every penny just for the sake of comfort
