untucked shirts with jeans - Page 3

post #31 of 41
What do you do when you're wearing a light waist-length jacket over a button-up shirt with jeans? I had this predicament last night and ended up tucking just the front in (performing a proper full tuck in public might get one arrested). When the jacket was open it was fine to have it hanging, but when it was zipped (it got colder later) it would look ridiculous to have the tails hanging out the front.

Probably best to just avoid this combo in the future.

Wow, those Japanese shirts really are nice.

Ben Sherman used to make shirts that were designed to be worn on the outside, I'm unsure if they still are designed that way:

personally i would never wear a dress shirt with jeans because i don't believe in tucking ANYTHING into a pair of jeans unless it's a bottom layer. unless you're james dean or getsmart it's quite a difficult task to tuck a shirt into jeans without looking like a mid-western tourist decked in kirkland gear.

how else do you show off your belt???

really it just depends on the overall look, where i'm going, etc..

I think the key is the length of the hem. Shorter tails can be worn un-tucked no problem. I have some Robert Graham shirts and a couple of Theory shirts which look nice un tucked. But when they start looking like a tunic instead of a shirt.... tuck it in.

Exactly. In the past, I have had shirts shortened by my tailor so that I could wear them untucked. Vintage Western shirts, for example, almost always came with extra long shirttails to be tucked in.

My tailor will shorten a shirttail in the original design of the hem for a mere $18, it comes out looking quite good if one is so inclined to turn a tuck-in shirt into a non-tuck in shirt.

This is basically my stance on this whole thing, fwiw...

I'm not a fan of drizzt's untucked shirt, blazer, and jean combinations. They aren't AmJacky... something about them just doesn't do it for me. It's not the length of the shirts that's an issue. I'd just like them a lot more with the shirts tucked in, and a thick casual leather belt.

I have that problem too...I have a great leather moto that I wear all spring and part of the fall, and it is constantly making me scratch my head. My solution - every time I go to the bathroom to shoot up, I either take off the jacket and untuck or put it on and tuck! Although in a leather moto, you don't really run the risk of looking like a missionary or a tourist. So I guess I could just tuck and leave it. I'm serious. And diabetic. ;}

Well, now you'll never grow up to be a good terrorist. Generally, I just wouldn't wear a collared shirt with a moto. There are particular cases where it can work, but if you're wearing it normally and just not sure if you should tuck it or not, probably best if you just wore a couple tshirts instead.
