Am I too old for contemporary shirts? - Page 3

post #31 of 34
Thread Starter 

 

Didn't the tapered leg look go out of style after the 80's

 

The shirts i'm talking about are meant to be untucked that's why they are the length they are,

 

This is also funny, I went to another board awhile ago and everyone said never tuck a causal button down shirt into jeans.

 

I never know who to trust, I guess I better find out the demographics on the people replying.  If your from Texas, I guess you tuck everything with the big belt buckle and boots.  If CA, you may never tuck anything in.  If your in your 70's your may be wondering why I'm not wearing a tie and a brim hat.  If your a mom of young kids not tucking looks messy to you.  I'm not sure which advice to take.

Out of style? Absolutely not - it's about what looks good and what doesn't:

400

Above is tapered - it's crisp and clean.

403

The above is straight leg - it's sloppy and messy. It's even worse if you're wearing shoes because it completely envelops them.

Your jeans will last an absolute lifetime as well if they're tapered because they won't be scrapping against the pavement: they sit just above the shoe rather than falling all around it in a big mess.


As for the highlighted text, the people you asked are wrong.

If you think late 30's is old, what do you call men beyond that? Now I feel old ha! But hey, believe in what they say, age is simply a number. Try not to think about your age and just focus on what what you think looks good on you. Untucked shirt and jeans are just fine for me.
