He is probably already over Thom Browne by now The other is simply a brain-dead follower, who has no idea or opinions about style or fashion and is simply following the trends that are fed to him (e.g. wearing an untucked striped shirt 7 years after the Paul Smith look). He buys the once-good ideas only when recycled to the nth degree and available at Old Navy, Gap or American Eagle.
I like your answer, which is very much like pejorative lecture Meryl Streep's character gives about the color cerulean. Still an AmJack is one of boorish behavior, a monied vulgarian, and may or may not be a redneck - just uncouth.

I’ve read this thread all the way to the end and I feel like I have been verbally molested and stripped of my masculinity.

And not, unfortunately, by a hot high school teacher.

What do you guys think about the "preppie" half-tuck?
post #21 of 28
Tuck or don't. Half-tucks and faux-tucks are ridiculous.

Here is a photographic example of the "semi-tuck" as worn with sweater and designed to show off the belt but still look mussed and coolly casual. Note the front and rear views.

The entire sweeater section of the JCrew catalog is filled with similar photos.

Is J. Crew cashemere still made using loro piana yarn? It's incredibly cheap... How's the fit?

That's too "mussed" in my opinion. Looks like you're trying to look like a J. Crew ad. With a casual shirt or sweater that's just longer than belt length, I often tuck the front in a little. Shows the belt, but also keeps it from continually catching. It's really not that big a deal.

For bonus points on that J. Crew look, undo your fly and pull one of the shirt tails through it.

That faux tuck is unacceptable. Its like a preppy emo look where everything is perfectly messy. Use the F.T. to sport the belt buckle and I don't see a problem so long as the shirt isn't that long. I think it only works with t-shirts and polos too. A button down shirt needs to be tucked in or out.

Certainly the best scene in the movie and one of the best on-screen monologues ever. Meryl at her best.

Why would any self-respecting man do this?

Like someone else said earlier, this shows off how a casual faux-tuck can only be pulled off with shorter/slim fitting tops (yes this includes button downs).
