Shirt Clips


Textile professionals use shirt clips to fold fabric samples securely. Both metal and transparent plastic versions of these clips can be found.

Tie clips are an effective way to prevent your tie from flapping around. With multiple types available and each featuring its distinctive construction, each type offers its own set of advantages and disadvantages.


Y-Clips are small clips that attach to the side of towers and enable you to adjust their positioning. Constructed of black powder-coated metal for durability, these Y-Clips have been fitted to vehicles manufactured prior to 1998; most 1C Towers were done with them until 1994, while limited numbers continued using them up until 1998. Their use on cars manufactured after 1998 has not been tested and should be done so at your own risk.

Scaling can be accomplished using the Scale X and Scale Y properties, which represent horizontal and vertical scaling in percentage terms. You can also combine scaling with other transformations, such as rotation or location, to produce dynamic effects.


Straight is an umbrella term describing individuals who are sexually attracted to members of the opposite sex, as well as those who hold heterosexuality as normative. The history of straight in this context spans medical terminology, lavender linguistics, and community slang usage.

“Straight” as an adjective denotes level, upright, and unbent surfaces that extend in one direction – accurate and honest. As a noun, it refers to narrow channels connecting two bodies of water or people who identify as cisgender with their birth gender matching their current gender identity; or it could refer to people cisgender within an LGBTQ community who identify with one gender rather than both gender identities – although some believe the term has negative connotations for LGBTQ individuals because it implies they may be unnatural or abnormal in any given sense of the term as nouns!


The stirrup, in both its English and Latin forms, refers to two lightweight frames or rings designed to support a rider’s feet while mounting and dismounting their horse. Fastened directly to their saddle by bands, stirrups are traditionally constructed of iron but today more commonly made from durable stainless steel or lightweight composite materials; sometimes even heavy-duty colored plastic can be found as long-wearing versions with safety features that reduce stress on joint ligaments or facilitate leg positioning more easily. There are numerous styles of stirrups ranging from traditional Fillis stirrups all the way up to “safety” peacock stirrups designed with features to reduce stress on rider joints or make proper leg positioning easier to achieve.

Stirrups were initially invented to increase horse’s maneuverability and enable riders to remain on their mounts in combat – an essential aspect of knightly action that led to its rise. Furthermore, cavalrymen could utilize this device as well to hold onto their position in the saddle and strike fear into enemies when charging against them with lance in hand.

Stirrups can be found in many construction applications, from reinforcing concrete columns and beams against deformation by brick and mortar weight to supporting additional reinforcement to columns and beams with their enclosed steel rings that support them. Their curved designs help it withstand bending for added strength, making a stirrup significantly stronger than straight bars of equal diameter.

Stirrups typically feature hooks at both the top and bottom to enable them to latch onto longitudinal bars during concreting processes, helping prevent them from moving during this crucial step and improving the overall strength of columns or beams. In addition, their curved shape further increases the shear and torsion resistance of structures.

Two-legged stirrups, consisting of one single stirrup that does not cover all longitudinal bars, are a popular choice in commercial construction projects and provide both structural support and temporary worker support on an elevated work platform.

Shirt Stays

Shirt stays (commonly known as shirt garters) are invisible under your trousers and use an elastic strap to keep your shirt neatly tucked throughout the day. Popular with law enforcement personnel, military members, and security professionals – but also great for anyone wanting a professional appearance! Shirt stays are great additions for anyone interested in maintaining a put-together appearance and paying attention to detail.

Straight, Y-clip, and stirrup styles all work similarly: each provides the same functional benefits. Some types offer adjustable straps to ensure a perfect fit, while others are constructed from either soft or hard materials – the harder ones being more durable while soft cloth will likely feel more comfortable against your legs.

Straight shirt stays are the most straightforward and least costly type. Each leg receives two elastic ribbons with clips on both ends, one clip attaching to your shirt tail and another clip connecting with socks or feet. The elastic is thick enough and strong enough to keep your shirt from untucking when moving around frequently, while their easy application may result in accidental slip-offs if not spread evenly across both legs.

Another variation on the straight shirt stay is Y-style shirt stays, which have clips at both the front of your shirt and the top of your socks. Although difficult to put on at first, these stays provide greater security and offer a better fit than straight stays.

FancyBoy is an impressive newcomer to the shirt stay market, debuting on Kickstarter as an adjustable Y-style shirt garter with unique colors and patterns. Nickle-plated for corrosion and rust resistance, these garters will hold up well over time, though some customers have reported durability issues with clips over time. In general, however, users say their shirts still hold up after some years of use.
