#At a cemetery one must tuck in one's strings. <ref>Shulchan Aruch 23:1, Kitzur Shulchan Aruch of Rav Rephael Baruch Toledano, siman 9, laws of Tzitzit in a cemetary, seif 1 </ref>
===GarmentT-Shirt Tzitzit=== #One may It is preferable not to wear one's Tzitzit under one's clothes even if it will touch one's skinthe tzitzit on one’s body itself. <ref>Halacha Brurah 8:33. Sh"t Rivevot Efraim 4:15 quotes several Achronim however who hold :1 writes that it may be a disgrace is disgraceful tot he mitzvah of tzitzit to the Tzitzit to sweat onto them werit on one’sbody directlyas an undershirt, and himself allows being lenient rather one should wear on a hot day. Halichot Shlomo 3:11 says that this would not be a disgrace at alltop of an undershirt. Sh"t Teshuvot Vehanhagot 1:25 says if you wear them specifically as an undershirt to stop the sweat from wetting your shirt than then he is unsure if it would even be obligated in Tzitzit, so one should try to refrain from doing so. Piskei Teshuvot 8:22 fnt. 196 makes a similar point.</ref> Some poskim hold that the halacha is that it permitted to do so.<ref>Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach (Halichot Shlomo 3:11) holds that wearing tzitzit on one’s body isn’t disgraceful to the mitzvah. Also, Halacha Brurah 8:33 quotes his father, Rav Ovadia Yosef, as holding that there is no concern of wearing a tzitzit on one’s body and it isn’t considered disgraceful to the mitzvah. He explains that it isn’t an issue of being a undershirt since one put it on primarily for tzitzit and secondarily it also is an undershirt. [http://www.hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=19979&pgnum=47 Or Letzion 2:2:4] agrees. </ref># It is critical that the sides for the tzitzit be split majority of the way and not closed like a regular undershirt. Otherwise the garment isn't obligated in tzitzit. When determining the size of the hole the armhole is considered as though it was closed.<ref>[http://www.hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=19979&pgnum=47 Or Letzion 2:4:4]</ref>
