Sometimes, tucking in shirts when you are long torsoed makes your legs look shorter because
you can see your waist. If you are going to see your waist, it helps to wear higher waisted pants - it creates the illusion of a higher waist and therefore longer legs (from the point of view as someone who is 5'11" with a 30" inseam).
