I can't be the only guy out there with this problem. Everyone knows the style now is to wear button down shirts or polo shirts not tucked in if you are wearing jeans. This means if you are not a tall guy the shirt can possibly go down to the bottom of your butt almost which in my opinion looks horrible. That's just how a lot of manufacturers make their shirts now. They make them for guys around 6 foot. My question is has any average height guy out there (5'9''ish) found a brand that isn't too long?

For me, Express, Guess, Banana Republic (some), or Nordstrom in the Rail department. Some shirts are really meant to be worn only tucked in. BR has both business and casual shirts and has different fits. I have some BR shirts that are only for office days and others that are good as casual shirts. If you were born in 76 these are good alternatives. Not too old looking, not too young looking. I always cringe when I see guys my age dressed in A&F clothing...

CK, Kenneth Cole, Perry Ellis and lots more. Get them slim fitting

This shirt is slimish fitting and cut to be untucked. Notice the bottem is flat/level all the way around





This shirt is not slim fitting and is not cut to be untucked. Can't really see, but no doubt the sides are kinda like and upside down U....where the sides are short, while the front/back are long. Not made to be untucked, but people do so anyway.

What's wrong with AF. Just gotta make sure the reindeer is tiny so theimporterswife and ladies as such won't notice it

In fact, they make polls which are a good fit. I once got a lacoste polo and trashed it in a month coz it was way too loose. 110 bucks and worthless.

Vineyard Vines fits well too. Brooks brothers, one really has to fish the fitted ones out on their website. They have some incredible tailoring on their clothes.

Good post. I like that shirt. Think Im going to head over to Nordstrom or Macys to pick up a couple. That is how outside worn button ups should be done.

Not a thing. If you are under 25. Over 30... Unless they have clothes without the logo, like jeans, then it's probably OK.

They did have that store Ruehl. Interesting concept. It was like shopping in a house, in a mall. I they shut Ruehl down though.

Agreed on Brooks Brothers.

Club Monaco is a good source as well and since they're not nearly as prevalent, less likely to run into your "twin" while out which can be embarrassing...

What about Nautica? I've seen some nice button shirts by them..but remember we're talking about shirt length here. I agree some brands might not really be apppropriate for a 35 year old but some may disagree on that. I like the grey shirt that was posted. I think going slim fit is a valid strategy they don't generally seem as long.
