With sleeves rolled up, yes. I only own 2 short sleeve dress shirts and these haven't gotten any wear in over 2 years. I'm never buying short sleeves shirts again, unless they are tee shirts.

A dress shirt tucked into jeans looks foolish. Or dad-like. It's just an awful look.

Preferably a button down collar
I often wear a Gitman Vintage or BB slim fit oxford with raw denim.
Another way to wear it -- find a beat-up old BB oxford, wear with faded 501s and a bridle leather belt with aged brass buckle. Insert feet into dirty bucks = be a chick magnet.
The key here is that you need to be in shape. That automatically excludes about 80 percent of male population.

I take it back. This is a little appropriate.

all that one needs is a cell phone clipped to the belt to complete the look.

My personal rule is that if I'm wearing a button down shirt with jeans, if I'm wearing a jacket, I tuck it in. If the shirt is the top layer, whether over a T-shirt or over nothing, it's usually untucked.

This doesn't load for me. It loads for a flash, then vanishes.

It say basically, "Wear a slim fit shirt."

How many of you tuck your shirts into your Fruit of the Looms?

Most of you, right?

It took you five pages of posts to finally ask that question?

Finally, the recognition I deserve (and only two days late in coming):

I find you guilty of kiltie.

Untucked dress shirts always look sloppy from any angle.
