This is a Chan shirt that is mostly a copy of a Jantzen one. Pre-crash, we were discussing just how short a shirt could be so that it would look good untucked and will not come loose when tucked. Most felt that 30" (for my 5'9" height) would be ideal but I decided to experiment with 28". I think this looks much better untucked and I assure you that when tucked it never comes loose. I think it's possible to chop off another inch and still have the shirt stay firmly tucked. I intend to try that with my next order. Another issue was the matter of darts in the back of the shirt. As you can see, they really tighten up the back and reduce the space near the hollow of the back. When I had Chan copy my Jantzen shirt I instructed them to add the darts. We weren't certain how to specify this when ordering from Jantzen but now that I think about it, one should just be able to say "please place two darts in the hollow of the back, 8" long, 1/2" deep." One concern I have, however, is how would the darts look with a striped pattern? Oh, and there was also the issue of whether it's possible to wear a French cuff shirt untucked with jeans. I certainly think so, though perhaps leather shoes would've been better than the sneakers.
