Even a button-down shirt...left open, worn over a T-shirt, looks better out than in. But if you button the shirt up all the way, then yes, tucked in looks more presentable, but isn't any more comfortable.

I prefer the "tucked in" look myself.

One thing I'd like to add, however. Men need someone (but who???) to teach them to get their jeans fitted properly before tucking in their shirt. It's amazing how a man who *should* be wearing a size 42 waist squeezes into a pair of 36 or 38's and lets their entire belly hang over the top. They end up with the waist of the pants down around their crotch because the pants can't be pulled up any higher. I see this quite a bit. Definitely not a good look with a tucked in shirt!

Button down with jeans is more country but def not bad. Button down with nice pants is fine. Not button down with jeans is geeky. Nonbutton down with cargo...depends. That's final.

Depends on the shirt, but un-tucked is much more comfortable.
Some guys looks like stuffed chickens when their shirt is tucked in and everything is too tight, blech !!

Dress shirts with dress pants seem to be tucked in more often. Although, casual dress can be untucked.....

Right now, I admit it , I am un-tucked..................but I am comfortable.

I see nothing silly about tucking in a shirt.

Interesting point.

When I'm wearing sneakers, I usually wear less formal shirts and leave them untucked. But with the same pair of pants, if I wear dressier shoes, I'll also wear a dressier shirt and tuck it in.

When I was married I was instructed to always tuck my shirt in. Polo shirt, tshirt, doesn't matter. Mowing the lawn, going fishing, no matter what, I HAD to have my shirt tucked in. I was told "only unkempt slobs leave their shirts untucked". Now that I am both single AND retired, I refuse to tuck any shirt in, and threw out all my ties. I am gonna be comfortable.

I don't think it is silly, either. However, it is a personal choice so do what turns you on and don't worry about others.
