Tie?

When did the Army start tucking their tie into the shirt? And Why?

BUT, those ties are not tucked in. They are just being worn under over coats and jackets. I could post a pic of myself from about 66 with the tie tucked into my Class B's

Don't know when,
but as for why:
While in the army we did it in order not to be caught by the tie during barfights or by moving parts of whatever nature
and because girls downtown told us it looked übercool

Since the tie was worn only with the Class A or Class B uniform, it wasn't tucked in to avoid "machinery". People working with machinery wear work clothing/fatigues.

It was tucked in to avoid flapping in the wind, the need for tie bars, and to make everyone look uniform in the ranks, instead of a tie hanging down to the waist of a little guy and a lot higher on tall guy.

Tucking it in also kept it out of our chow.


BTW - the troops during WWII kept their ties tucked in, too.

Class "A" Uniform

Here is my picture from 1967, I can't tell if the tie is tucked in, if I remember right it wasn't. And we never wore a tie in our khakis. Even in the Army Guard in the late '80s we only wore a tie with our class "A" uniform. I missed the khakis, I thought they looked better than that light shirt and slacks.

You guys are always awesome on these really important military issues.
