If you're wearing a button-down shirt, I prefer the way they look tucked in (even when you're wearing jeans). When a grown man is wearing jeans with a button down shirt and it's not tucked in, it just reminds me of a 5 year old whose mother tried to dress him nicely but he'd rather roll around in the dirt.

If you have a good build, show it off by tucking the shirt in. That looks better than a shirt hanging halfway down to your knees.

I can remember the '50's, yes, I can, when guys wore chinos and t-shirts (white preferred). The shirts were always tucked in and the short sleeves turned up twice. Egad, they were H.O.T.!

Shirt not tucked in? Screams either Lazy or Hiding Something.

Depends on the shirt, whether it's made to be tucked in, the overall look, and the context of the outfit.

I used to cover a lot of rodeos and bullriding. You will not see a guy on the rodeo circuit with an untucked shirt. It's all western-style with mother of pearl snaps, tucked into Wranglers with belts. Certain tops were not made to be tucked in (athletic jerseys, sweaters, fleece pullovers, etc.) Others are more negotiable. Buttonups are the most likely to go either way.

For women, there is more variety in the style and cut of tops, and tucking in or not tucking in hinges largely on the cut of the top.

Looking at both pics, Ines Sainz desperately needs pocketed jeans, IMO. Regardless of what your butt looks like, the denims-sans-pockets (particularly in light-wash denim) look is perilously close to W/T.

Thoughts? Especially from the ladies.

I think it's ridiculous. Jeans are suppose to be casual and to me tucking in your shirt says anything but casual, but then again I don't like shirts tucked in anytime (for myself or a guy). I wear business casual clothing for work (and hate it by the way I am way more of a jeans and t shirt kind of girl) but I don't buy shirts that need to be tucked in. I am more into construction type guys (my hubby is an electrician) so they would look kind of ridiculous trying to be GQ as it is.

Good for you!

Your (ex?) wife sounds like a commandante.

I don't have a problem with tucking or not tucking. I don't tuck in t-shirts, but sometimes I tuck in my polo shirt when I'm wearing jeans, and sometimes I don't. It's not really a big issue for me.
