What was silly were those shirts we ladies had in the 70's that had the snaps on them. So we would look all nice and tucked in. Anybody else out there remember those? A simple trip to the bathroom turned into an exercise in contortionism. What were we thinking to put up with something that uncomfortable?

I trust by now everybody has figured out where the snaps were. We were a bunch of grown women wearing "onesies".

LOL, they actually came back in style during the late '80s or early '90s. I remember wearing them and they were a pain in the neck. So glad that fashion has died out.

I have very long legs and a short torso so for people with my body type it looks silly. If you are overweight it also looks silly.

Tucking a dress shirt into jeans is totally acceptable. If you're 60.

Persoanlly like shirts tucked in. I often find it strange that overweight people think not doing it makes them look slimmer;its doesn't .

Agreed. Tucking in looks more put-together.

I don't tuck in anything except button up dress shirts or sometimes polo shirts, in the rare occasions I wear them.

I think tucked in shirts always looks silly unless its an undershirt and you have another shirt over it to keep you warm. But if the tucked in shirt is showing it looks funny and outdated. Sometimes when a guy is wearing a dress shirt with a suit type jacket over it than it will look ok.

Rules rules rules. Arbitrary rules. They make no real sense.
