View Full Version : Garand Picture of the Day, 21 May
Check out the "tailored" shirt on the Marine on the right. I thought we invented that style in 1965. I guess we didn't. I remember going to the base tailor shop. We would put our shirts on in-side-out, the tailor would pin them up and then sew them. Some guys would get their trousers done, but they were not allowed to be very tight. The shirts could be as tight as you wanted.
Not sure about that, the Marine in the picture.
Back, back, back when I was in during the earlier 60's, we were taught by our DI's to pull the shirts tight on the front from the back, make two "flaps" in the back, then tuck them into our pants real tight.
It was considerably easier to do when one had a 32" waist. Kinda harder today when there's more "waist" in the front.
We also did the two "flap" thing on our utilities berfore we had them tailored. The Marine in the above picture shirt was certainly tailored...look at the sleeves, shoulders and chest. You can't get that by tucking in two flaps. He does look good....see all the squids "checking him out".
