I only like this look with a blazer or cardigan, something to hide the mounds of material that bunches up in the back. So many guys embrace the half tuck now and it can look very contrived.....but with a blazer and a nice belt and just enough material to show the belt buckle, but hang.....its a good look.....

I agree with the half-tuck for guys, especially with a very proper shirt - it's uber hot.

I'm not really sure on how to pull off the tucked or even half-tucked look...when I do tucked it looks like I'm a member of those high-school AV clubs, and when I do half tucked it looks like I'm trying too hard can someone please give me some pointers?

dress shirts
presumably you have dress shirts as I do
meaning there is a curved tail at the back and in front there are 2 longer sections, 1 by each trouser pockets on the left & right?
untucked means leaving all or part of these fitted tails OUTSIDE the pant.
for me its ALL about the FRONT untuck.
its getting a little too popular now but I will continue to untuck until may or june or so.
starting in june Im going back to fully tucked, and for fall 2005.
some people do a rear untuck but that to me is sloppy & silly.
if you have any more untuck questions fee free its another look ive been doing for along long time.
but its nice to TUCK lately [and next summer as I planned] just to confound the super trendies with their purposeful un-tuck.

I almost always tuck my t-shirts/shirts in. I like belts and I like showing off belts. Also, I hate having an untucked top half as it makes me look wider around the waist. I think if you have my body shape then you can get away with tucking even the tightest of tops in. However, my sister can't get away with tucking tops in as it just emphasises her not-so-flat stomach.

On the other hand, if I'm wearing super-tight jeans/a bodycon skirt then I tend to pair them with a baggier top to balance things out, and most of the time I don't tuck the top in in that scenario.

If I do the 'half tuck' thing then 99% of people I see tell me I forgot to untuck my shirt when I went to the toilet -embarrasing!!-

Being absurdly short of waist, 99.9% of the time I cannot tuck. It just looks bizarre (^(oo)^)

I do the half tuck thing, when I have a blazer / cardi on top of the t-shirt / button-up shirt. I like the half tuck look, I think it looks 'effortlessy stylish'

I tuck and don't tuck. It depends on the type of shirt if I tuck. Of course when wearing a dress shirt together with a suit I tuck, but when wearing a polo shirt or a denim shirt, I mostly don't. I also like the look of wearing a vest over a non-tucked shirt.

Oops.

I thought this thread was referring to the type of tucking drag queens do. LOL.
