No wonder you're divorced.

Exactly. It's hardly an earth-shattering issue.

So today, I have the Timbz on so i am untucked, and comfortable. !!
Jeans are an article of clothing that can be very casual, or a little dressier, depending on what accompanies them. I have a couple of nice pairs of jeans, and then some ratty ones too. The nice ones can be casual if worn with sneakers or more casual shoes, and sometimes with them I wear a polo shirt or even a t-shirt untucked. But I can wear those same jeans with nicer shoes and a button-down shirt, tucked in.

For me, it depends on the shirt. I'd never tuck a "baby doll" shirt in. It would give me a balloon waist! Same with cropped tops.

I don't think people should ever tuck in shirts. I know from a business stand point people think it looks more professional, but I think all shirts look better out, personally.

T-shirts are bad, yeah, but it's really funny when people tuck in jerseys and other obviously no-tuck garments

It totally depends on what you are wearing. You simply have to take it on a case by case basis and look at accessories etc. No hard and fast rules when it comes to fashion

I think the no-tuck movement has grown so big because our waistlines have also grown. It helps hide the gut when you leave everything untucked.
