I usually wear short sleeved button down shirts and when I do, I leave my shirt out. However, when I wear a long sleeved button down shirt, I DO tuck it in.

Whether I tuck or not sometimes depends on the length of the shirt. If the shirt doesn't hang too far down, I'll leave it untucked, but I think it looks ridiculous to have a shirt untucked when it hangs halfway down to your knees.

I also think body type matters. Fit, trim guys should tuck their shirts in, because tucked-in shirts accentuate their fitness. When you've got it, why hide it?

If you're fat, probably untucked will hide being fat better. If you have a nice mid-section, everything looks nice on you usually. I tuck or untuck depending on the shirt and what it looks like in either configuration. Not a big deal.

All depends on the style and cut of the shirt. You can go either way on this. If you're going to a nice restaurant wearing a blue blazer or sport coat to go with the button down shirt; let's say something conservative like a light blue Brooks Brothers shirt, then tuck it in. If you're going out to a party or a club, and you're wearing a designer label with a more casual look, you can leave it out. Wear the appropriate shoes to go with whatever combination you choose, and match your shoes to your belt.

Bodysuits...I had a bunch as an adolescent in the early '90's. Wore them with my colored Guess jeans (shudder).

I am more into construction type guys (my hubby is an electrician) so they would look kind of ridiculous trying to be GQ as it is.
and it is girl's like you, that guys like me thank.

I hate tucking shirts in, it is annoying, I don't like the pulling when you sit down, ugh. It just isn't comfortable. I feel like a stuffed penguin.

I like jeans preferably Levis and a un-tucked shirt, be it button down or pull over, then I am a happy camper......if I am comfortable, I am happy, if I am un-comfortable, I am miserable.....

Tucking in shirts is not casual wear. Jeans are inherently casual. Therefore, no tucking shirts into jeans. Tucking is for formal attire with dress shirts and dress pants. IMO.

All I know is, my DH has a pot belly and he thinks if he doesn't tuck his shirt in nobody will notice. I would much rather he still tuck the shirt in. I even point this out to him on others when we are out and about, but he still persists.

Jeans

<jerks and spits coffee out>

No, no, no, no, no, noooooooooooooo.

The poster 2 posts above got it right. If the dude is fat, tucking in will make him 6 months pregnant.

I don't like shirts tucked in unless you need to dress very formal or professional.

So never into jeans.
