T-Shirt Tzitzit
#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>
===T-Shirt Tzitzit===
#It is preferable not to wear the tzitzit on one’s body itself.<ref>Rivevot Efraim 4:15:1 writes that it is disgraceful tot he mitzvah of tzitzit to werit on one’sbody directly as an undershirt, rather one should wear on top 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 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>
