In a world full of class, a man walking around with an untucked shirt or even a shirt that is half tucked can make him look like a rebellious schoolboy.
In fact, nowadays, menswear is about the fine and neat details, and a nice tucked shirt is a great way to show that you are a grown man, who takes care of his appearance and aims to look classy as well as neat. Here are some ways to keep your shirt tucked in.
Buy a Shirt That Fits You
In fact, if you get an oversized shirt, you are going to deal with the problem of having an excess fabric that is going to hang over your trousers. This feature is called “muffin top”. Moreover, muffin top-ing is not a really nice think to look at and will not make you look good. Here comes the importance of having a shirt that fits you and by doing that, you will make it harder to untuck with small movements.
Find The Ideal Length
Just like you need to fine one that fits you, you also need to find the right length. In general, casual shirts are typically made in a way to be shorter, however, dress shirts are typically made longer in length which makes them easier to be tucked in.
The General Tuck
This the simplest, easiest kind of tucks. All you need to do is unfasten your trousers and push the shirt into them. Moreover, try to tuck it evenly so that you avoid the clumps.
The Military Tuck
This tuck is great if the shirt you have is a bit loose, or a size bigger than yours. This tuck is made so that you won’t have to take your shirt to the tailor. Once your trousers are unfastened, push the fabric to the back of the shirt. This way, the front will have no creases nor excess fabric. After that, create a crease to tuck in the excess fabric to the back of your trousers.
