WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- A Westchester resident has solved a problem for men many might never have realized could be fixed.

Rafael De Oliveira of White Plains is the creator behind Tucked Trunks , a boxer brief for men that keeps shirts neatly tucked in without the use of magnets or other gadgets like suspenders or garters.

How it works: You simply grab your trunks like you would grab any other traditional boxer brief and tuck your shirt into the dual waistband of Tucked Trunks which contains a rubber gripping that holds the shirt firmly in place.

There is also a button holding feature that secures the last button of the shirt into the boxer brief keeping it perfectly tucked in.

The invention has been four years in the making and went officially live online seven months ago. "It has been a journey, to say the least," said the White Plains High School grad. "I quit my 10-year career at Scarsdale Medical Group to pursue this full time."

So far, he said, Tucked Trunks has been well received by the gentlemen community which has helped his startup grow. The product was featured, in fact, on Business Insider within a few weeks of its launch.

De Oliveira said he's been humbled by the experience and outpouring of support -- all from a simple frustration he had with his shirts always looking messy.
