Does tucking your jersey make a difference?

When you're 6 years old like my son and playing on a 8-9 year old team, you tuck in your jersey.

Has zero to do w/looking cool and everything to do w/keeping your hockey pants up, jersey from getting caught around your knees, and butt-end out of you shirt.

Jersey tuck all the way!!!

Are women's jerseys cut differently? I had no idea.

To what?

I always thought if I tucked in my jersey it would be tighter, I always found wearing a tighter jersey meant pucks wouldn't stick to my chest and I would give off more rebounds from shots that hit me there.

For example, when I kind of crouch down on my butterfly trying to squeeze the puck in my chest, lets say the puck pops back loose and I have to lunge for the puck, I find that the jersey tends to get stuck over my pants and I'd have to go against its resistsence... maybe thats just cause my bum is so big... haha

and this happens for any kind of leaning forwards in general...

when I tuck my jersey in, i find that no matter what i do, my jersey just slides in and out of the pants and it never gets stuck.....

i do it exactly like price does his jersey here....

They can be, if your team buys a specific female cut. They're sort a A line shape, rather than straight

tucking your jersey in is just a non verbal way of communicating to everyone "hey look at me im a loser"

Perfect, then it is conveying exactly what I wanted it to.

How about a full tuck under suspenders, what does that say?

I think it's a comfort thing. I cannot remember who said it but they would say "Look good - play good." I was very particular about how I dressed/felt before i got on the ice. Hockey players are so damn particular.

I always did the one side tuck. I just liked the way it felt. I wasn't trying to be "cool" or anything. I would tuck one side in if i was training on the ice w/ just me and a skating trainer. Nobody else had to be in the arena.

Whatever makes you feel comfortable - do it. Some guys, especially hockey players, don't give two *****. Some guys take 20 minutes to tie their skates because it just doesn't feel "right" the first 10 times.
