WAYWRN: MC Casual Style - Page 801

post #12001 of 15897
There are too many factors that come into play to either qualify the untucked shirt as a MC casual or SWD 'thing'.

I agree with Roetzel that the slimmer a shirt's fit is, the shorter it may be. As a result a slim fitting dress shirt wil not necessarily be too long to wear untucked. Also, my formal trousers have a substantially higher rise than my casual jeans due to which I don't have problems with the shirts pulling out when tucked in when worn formally.
The more formal the shirt the harder it is to pull off though imo.
The untucked shirt, for me, really is something for the warmer months of the year.

This seems about right, lengthwise.

This is something I see quite a lot in preppy settings. Don't like it.

Here's an easy rule of thumb for the tucked/untucked buttons - with the button down shirt buttoned up to your normal point and tucked in, raise your arms above your head. Does the shirt come flying out of your pants or are you unable to raise your arms fully? Then its too short to be tucked. Otherwise, stuff that fucker in there.

In exactly that context: I'm wearing a 3/2, minding my own business, and I'm told to 'button up' with the greatest condescension, as though I'd forgotten to tie my shoelaces.  I don't mind so much when it's my lip or my fly.  It's happened less since the wedding bands went on, but only less.

crat - i mostly agree with you about the length, but i dont dislike the preppy sweater look or the look with the SC (the first one).

I think that's just because he chose denim and boots. Now, if he were wearing tan/khaki chinos with an untucked gingham shirt or something, I don't think it would be SWD, but I think it would still work as a spring/summer casual look.

Probably right. What would you swap out to make it more MC? (not what I was going for, but still curious)

It's kind of odd how our culture views tucking shirts in as dorky, if you're under 35 or so, but yet there's a huge market for belts.

i generally dont love the shirts with the straight line at the bottom/no curve.

I need to find a way to avoid a crotch shot! Would've gone for a full body if found a place with more space than this tiny room I'm in!
