I spent 15 years in United States Marine Corps. One of the things Marines are known for is how good they look in their uniforms.
Let me give you a behind the scenes about the process to look that good in those uniforms. It involves a little pair of scissors and a whole lot of time.
You see, take all those extra threads that hang...
Make a fist. Squeeze it tighter. Tight enought to make your knuckles turn white. Squeeze it even harder.
Then let go.
