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?

Eh.

About the shirts mentioned above. Proper? Yes. Manly? I guess.
I don't think it impacts manliness one way or the other.
No, it just means you prefer to tuck your shirt in
Sew a patch that says "Macho" on the collar and you will be the manliest man in the room!
I don't think you could label the practice of tucking in your shirt as either exclusively manly or unmanly, IMO.
I don't know about manly but I think tucking a collared shirt into jeans without a sports jacket or the like over it looks nerdy.
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)
I like this guideline
Ditto, Greg. You've nailed my typical style perfectly.
Uh yeah, for sure. You can't wear a collard shirt un tucked. That is only for t shirts
Unless you are doing manual labor your shirt should be tucked in and you should be wearing a belt.

If you're a plumber or laborer that has to bend over or squat down on the job you damn well better tuck that t-shirt in and make sure it is a LOOONG shirt.

Should I go for the CPA?

I have long been thinking about adding a CPA to my name.I graduated with a bachelor's degree in history and an economics minor when I was an undegrad.

While I was in the master's program, I received a job offer working for a union funds office as a collections/delinquency coordinator for a multi-employer health and welfare plan. I've been working at this job for 2…See More
