the 3 roll 2 jacket is pretty uncommon as a look in the UK, and for the style he is trying to get you are lucky the top button of his shirt is unbutton.

It's much the same in Canada (well, the parts I know -- not too familiar with northern Quebec or the prairies) with respect to 3/2, though we're almost universally accepting of an undone collar.  I've actually had certain condescending old farts tell me to 'button up' my jackets, putting me in the awkward position of delivering a potted lecture on trad aesthetics or pretending I only speak German.

people say this to you? in what context?

I have a serious question, not trolling, promise. Is it bad form around here to leave your shirt untucked? Is that the tipping point that takes you from MC Casual Style into...you know...next door with the SWD rabble? Not trying to start Jets/Sharks war, just inquiring. I tuck my shirt in from time to time as well.

I wouldn't say so. Untucked shirt with rolled up sleeves is fine in summer imo. Much depends on the individual items though.

for the most part, yes, imo, shirt out pretty much sends you over the line around here. most certainly not saying it cant look good, it can be great, but i think it is one of the things that rarely is considered good form as a MC look. the only untucked fit here i can think of off hand was from hendrix.

When it comes to untucking a shirt, the outfit immediately becomes more casual (in most any case I can consider, but there may be exceptions). It can work well for casual summer wear, and most people are more forgiving of the fit of that shirt, since billowing is less apparent. However, I think the length of the shirt needs to be more precise. You really can't pull off an untucked shirt that's too long in the body without it looking like some kind of middle school painting smock.

From my experience - I should have listend to the tailors who told me earlier - you can't wear the same shirt tucked and untucked.
A shirt that wears great tucked will look silly untucked because it is too long and a shirt that has the right length to be worn untucked, I like them to sit at about mid placket in the front and mid pocket in the back of my jeans, will constantly pull out of the pants if you try to wear it tucked in.
Thus I would recommend getting both a fall/winter/spring wardrobe with shirts long enough to tuck in, you will wear a sweater ontop anyways in central Europe that month of the year, and a small wardrobe especially for summer.
Also I think it's a great think to mix weaves and fabrics.
Classic oxfords for the three quarters of a year wardrobe and lighter fabrics like Royal Oxfords and Linen for summer.

+1 When I think of an untucked "dress" shirt (i.e. one that is too long), this picture comes to my mind:

It's really unlikely that a proper fitting dress shirt will be the proper length, and that look just tells the world you messed up your slacks and grabbed the jeans out of your trunk. Either that, or you had to answer the door and didn't have pants on.
