I've recently been shying away from t-shirts and trying to wear more long sleeved, collared, semi-dress or dress shirts. I've been tucking them into my jeans, something I haven't done very often throughout my life, but it is begininning to grow on me.
What do you guys think? Is tucking in your shirt manly?
As a young kid, I used to tuck all of my shirts in, whether they were dress shirts or t-shirts. It didn't even matter if I was wearing long pants or those freaky 70's-80's short shorts (with the stripes down the sides? I hate my parents now). Looking back at the old pictures, I'm surprised I didn't kill myself early on; thank God for my complete ignorance of fashion, I guess.
As a teenager (and up until very recently), all of my shirts went untucked (unless, of course, the occasion was formal). It was easier, looked more casual (which seems to be the Holy Grail of teenage fashion), and simply more comfortable. I'm still most comfortable with that look, but I have been trying to tuck my button-down shirts in more, especially at work (I'm a programmer, so dress code isn't a big deal). I've actually found that I feel more grown-up and put together when my shirt's tucked in. This may not be the case for everyone, but it works for me.
Manly, though? It all depends on how you feel about it.
Technical definition - if a shirt has a flat bottom, don't tuck it in - i.e. when you lay the shirt flat on your bed, the bottom hem for the front, back and sides are all the same.
if the shirt has tails - i.e. not a uniform bottom hem, the back and front are lower than the sides - tuck it in.
I personally like to leave my shirts untucked with the sleeves tastefully rolled up to have a more casual look. (also I have a really hard time finding shirts that fit my torso with sleeves long enough to fit properly)
