I became a Police Officer in 2009 and while in the academy, I realized that I needed to wear a set of shirt stays to keep my uniform shirt tucked in. I wore a pair of shirt stays for a few years and it became very frustrating. The shirt stays that I wore were not durable, would break easily, but most of all, they came undone when I had my uniform completely on.
There were times where I would be fully dressed running tight on time when one or multiple shirt stays would pop off. I would have to get partially undressed to readjust them. This also happened while on duty, getting in and out of my patrol vehicle or on a foot chase, making it very frustrating. Sometimes the shirt stays would pop off and I wouldn’t realize it, consequently losing one or more straps. I could remember times when other officers and I would complain about the shirt stays. As time went on, I realized that I was not the only person experiencing this frustration. Because of this, I created Shirt Stay Plus ®.
At first, I made a set for myself, trying out different materials to see what worked best. One of my fellow Police Officers saw them one day and asked, “Hey, where did you get those shirt stays?” When I told, him I made them myself, he was amazed and said he wanted a set. Next thing I knew, word spread around the department and everyone wanted a set. Then and there is when I knew I had created a great product!
My shirt stays are made with a durable elastic strap, an adjustable buckle, and metal clip with nylon teeth. The elastic strap is comfortable and feels better on your legs. The adjustable buckle, similar to the ones used on a back pack, ensure that once adjusted it will not readjust. The metal clip, firmly grips on to your shirt and socks to keep your shirt tucked in and looking good. My shirt stays are stitched with multiple threads, ensuring durability, and they made here in the USA.
My shirt stays have been field tested by Military, Law Enforcement officials and Business professionals. My shirt stays are better quality, will save you time and money, and relieve you from any frustration you have experienced with the other shirt stays sold in the market!
