I totally agree!!!

It just makes a man more handsome, GQ, and more aproachable I think. And it also shows that his hygiene is real good too (he does know how to dress and wears good clothes).

I mean, don't get me wrong, but the muscle man type shirt, shorts, and sandals look is good too (BUT only for the pool, the lake, or the beach).

I think it depends on the outfit & the guy (age and body type)

This.

Some button-down shirts were just meant to be worn tucked out

I'm working for a family right now and the guy came out yesterday to go to work with a t-shirt tucked into his jeans. He is in his 40's, slim build. I must admit, I looked twice and thought, what??? That looks stupid. He drives truck, it would look good not tucked.

I guess it really depends on the person's shape. If you have quite a big tummy, better let the shirt out of the pants!

I really think it depends. I think it looks silly whenever I tuck my shirts (t-shirts) into my pants (jeans or cargoes usually). My SO almost always tucks his shirts (t-shirts) into his jeans and I think it looks fine.

I agree about button-down shirts--I think they look much better tucked in, and kind of sloppy when they're not tucked in. I think most button-down shirts were made to be tucked in.

When it comes to t-shirts and polos being tucked in though, I think it depends on the body type of the wearer and the shirt itself.

I remember as a kid going somewhere with my best friend and her family (who were all always at least decently dressed, if not well dressed), and her father tried to get her brother to tuck his shirt in--but he was wearing a sweat-shirt! I remember my friend's brother arguing with their father that you can't tuck in a sweatshirt because it looks ridiculous (and it did).

If the T shirt is nice and fitted on a small or toned waist, then it looks great. If you are a little thicker then no, do not wear it tucked in.

I prefer a man who does tuck in this shirt when he wears jeans and a button down shirt. It's more handsomer (if there is a word...HEHEEHE!!).
It's also more proper. I was taught to have my shirt tucked in, and have never wavered. It just looks neat and tidy out in public. Now, if I'm all alone in my apartment just lounging around, that would be a different story sometimes.

Depends on your cultural background and location. In Europe for example, tucked in shirt is considered very rural and redneckish, so really depends who and where...

Does this look untidy and non proper?

I think for guys, the tucked shirt in the jeans is a country thing.
