English term or phrase: gig line
The term is from an iterview of a psychiatrist patient as he describes to the doctor how to adjust his genitals in his trousers, I have no idea of a similar term in Czech.Here is the sentence:

Explanation:
What is the gig line?
Answer: The gig line is the alignment of the shirt or blouse with the belt buckle and the fly of
the trousers or slacks.
Gig-Line: The gig-line is an imaginary straight line extending down the front seam of the shirt, across the belt, and down the zipper of the pants. For men, silver tip end of the belt extends beyond the buckle facing the wearer's left; no blue fabric shows. For women, silver tip end of the belt extends beyond the buckle facing the wearer's right; no blue fabric shows.
A perfectly straight line should be made by the shirt, belt buckle,
and zipper flap on the trousers. This is called the "gig line"
