I don't think it hides the gut very well. People only think it does. But few are fooled, unless the gut is very small.

I think long, buttoned down shirts look better tucked in and with a belt. Just neater looking to me. But regular blouses, tunics, and such no you don't have to.

No, I don't think it is silly at all unless ofcourse its a shirt that isn't meant to be tucked in.

I think tucking a shirt give a more put together look to an outfit.

I can't say that' it's something I pay a whole lot of attention to, but I guess I'd have to say that prefer "untucked."

Im starting to realize the "untucked look" is more popular nowadays b/c it lets people hide the shape of a bad body. Fit, well built guys that keep a shirt tucked in look a lot better to me. But if I was overweight, i guess i would want to hide the baggage as well.

The untucked look is sort of like a combover. It's more about the person who's using it fooling himself than it is about fooling other people, because most people can see through it.
