I tend to do the half tucked look a la Rihanna.

It depends on the style of the top I'm wearing and where I'm going.

Well, I agree with you. I don't like the look of a tucked in shirt. Looks too...well, I just don't like the look.

The Cubans have this one right. They have their shirts, (I forget what they call them, left Miami a few months ago and am quickly forgetting things...that's not a bad thing), that are not meant to be tucked in. I think it looks so much better. Even when they dress up nicely, those shirts look nice not tucked in.

I HATE having to tuck my shirt in, (like for work). It's restraining, uncomfortable and I hate the look.

It's what we are told looks nice, I guess. If we were told that shirts untucked looked nice, we would think that, instead.

The shirts are called "guayabera". They have them for women too and are very nice! Those you definitely DO NOT tuck in.


Guayabera, Mens Wedding Shirts, Linen Shirts | Cubavera

I love them in linen, but they come in cotton as well. In PR and Miami you can get them custom made!

A white T into Black or blue jeans = yum! = casual
A white oxford shirt into same = YUM! = casual (more better with at least 2 buttons undone!)
A polo shirt or "guayabera untucked = okay = very casual

I think there's a big difference between being casual & sloppy/messy/lazy/frumpy

Jeans around the base of butt or plumber's butt jeans - FORGET A BOUT IT!

I agree. If it is a formal situation, you shouldn't be wearing jeans anyway. You can dress up jeans, but never ever are jeans considered formal wear.

Basically, jeans w/tucked in shirt look pretty dorky 90% of the time, gut or no gut.

If the shirt/t-shirt is too long, tucked in just might be a better idea. Sometimes I will wear my linen shirts with jeans. Those that are short, are good either left loose or tucked in. Those that are longer, are better tucked in or the alternative will be a sloppy look. The same applies for t-Shirts. Some of them are designed to be tucked in (especially with the longer tail end). But I would never tuck in any of my slim fit t-shirts as they also happen to be just right in length.
