    I recommend shirt stays.

    If you need it today your local Men's Warehouse should have it:

    I like these...work great under t-shirts etc. You'll have to check length, but mine don't ride up.

    I wear cotton undershirts. Tuck them into your underwear. I know it looks totally geeky, but I found that it works.

    I live in the KCMO area and wear an undershirt of some sort almost all of the time. I am 6'3'' at 202 right now so I am somewhat sensitive to shirts riding up.

    With a collared dress shirts and a tie, I like the all cotton offerings from Costco -their Kirkland brand. For collared shirts with no tie, I go between cotton v-neck t- shirts and random colored logo t shirts depending on the color of the collared shirt

    With a logoed t shirt etc, I have used cotton /poly tank tops C9 brand from Target with much success. I rarely go with just a t-shirt and no undershirt.

    With all, no abrasion to the skin and some sweat absorption which is key for dress shirt preservation in the summer here where we can have 80/80+ days (80 temp and or 80% humidity, May -Sept.)

    I personally do not like the feel of the compression shirt. They are all poly and really hold stink unless you wash them in oxy clean. Having said that, them definitely provide abrasion protection and smooth everything out a bit to include love handles etc.
    While I am sure that Under Armor is a fine brand, I have found that in all manner of poly based wicking/compression offerings, Target, WalMart, Amazon. etc sell store brands that provide 70-100% of the performance at 30-50% of the price all day long.

    I know more than one pistolero that tucks their compression shirt into their underwear as opposed to over their underwear to keep everything "all tucked in." if the cover garment rides up a bit, you can be in the position of telling the word you wear Calvin Klein, Marty.

    Tell us what you end up doing in the end.

    YMMV greatly

    Edited to add: if you in fact have an extra long torso finding something that fits would be paramount and I would note that UA does sell Tall offerings. Thx Blues for the update on those.

    Well, in defense of the UA, I bought six of 'em for under $15 each when I purchased...and the sleeveless versions don't hold stink. And being sleeveless, are not encumbered by the type of shirt they ride under.

    YMMV, but they should not be thrown under the bus imho.




    ETA: I don't wear dress clothing on any sort of regular basis...so take that into consideration, since I don't have to worry about it showing under a white shirt.

    Fruit of the Loom Men's Stay Tucked V-Neck T-Shirt. They come in XLT. I'm 6'6" and have no problem with them coming untucked.

    When wearing a suit or dress clothes I do the same thing. Wearing cargo pants and using a rigger's belt or similar, I have found that I don't need to tuck it in my chonies.

    Undershirt of choice is Hanes cotton, one size smaller I would normally wear. After they go through the dryer, they fight tight but are cool in hot weather.

    I am most comfortable using a loose-ish triblend t shirt as my undershirt with casual concealment shirts; they also do a decent job of concealing by themselves if it's frigging hot.

    I wear a medium undershirt with dress shirts (typically Duluth Trading) but a large triblend.

    Most of mine are printed (I make my own on sites like CustomInk, for example), but here's a US-made source:
