Indeed, I don't wear dress shirts with jeans; I don't like how it looks. I'm just asking about proportions. edit: normally the dress shirt becomes tight if I flex or move around - skin tight doesn't work if you have any amount of muscle and want to move - so I don't mind if it looks baggy when I'm relaxed. The shirt will shrink when I put it into the wash since I haven't washed it yet.

Or do you find the sleeves to be good, and just take them in a bit and shorten

Since they are slim fit shirts, I'm having the tailor justen shorten and then box the hem.

[quote=Fortysomething;1140303]How much do you have to pay to have it done? I had two taken in th other day and it was $10 each. Not terrible, but I know now that to buy a shirt needing to be hemmed will have to be a great deal (price-wise) since it will have + $10 factor.

It's 12 bucks to have the hems made shorter then boxed.

honestly, i really don't understand the untucked shirt look. to be fair, after work i untuck my shirt because it feels better... but i think an untucked shirt is suppose to look casual and effortless, so i find it somewhat ironic that yall are discussing the ideal untucked shirt length and the need to go to a tailor to get it perfect

It doesn't look casual or effortless if you're wearing an off the rack run of the mill dress shirt that hit at your mid-upper thigh; it just looks sloppy. Some shirts are made to be tucked, some are made to be untucked. Not that weird.

What are some examples of these that wouldn't be hard to find?

No "conventional" dress shirts should be untucked IMO, and usually shouldn't be worn with jeans (but there are exceptions, of course). By "conventional" I mean a dress shirt you would typically be expected to wear to work at an office, etc

Anything else if fair game as long as it's not too long...

Ignore the sloppy tucking, use the pictures for proportion.





What looks better?

I think if I had the shirts made 2 inches shorter they would look better.

top looks better... i don't wear straight hemmed shirts untucked.

Just a few thoughts:

 

For the untucked shirt look, definitely buy and wear a shirt that was meant to be worn that way in the first place.

 

Length - the length at the front should never go past (or even level with) the join of the trouser or jean legs.

 

Don't wear just any shirt with any trouser. Some combos are going to look better than others. Don't force it.

 

For the untucked shirt look, the shirt should be close fitting on the body and arms.

 

Try to avoid getting them altered - they're never quite the same. Try to get one OTR.

 

It's a good look in a lot of contexts - especially layering with appropriate outerwear, knitwear etc.

 

Give an honest self-appraisal of the outfit - you'll instinctively know if it works or not. Trouble is, we often faff around trying to see what we want to see.

Ima get the shirts tailored I already own one, the other was final sale. So i am screwed-double screwed- i have to spend on tailoring and the shirt will look bad still. Im pretty upset i didnt notice the final sale  notice. The tailor i am going to go to I have no basis on any of their work. 

 

See how with the black jeans my shirts look shorter that really got me confused. Maybe im looking at them from the wrong angle. The rise on both jeans are the same . >_>

 

Is it normal that shirts puff at the shoulders after their tailored or do i have a bad tailor?

Shoulders are a very difficult thing for a tailor to alter on a pre-made item - most tailors won't even go there. I wouldn't be surprised if such an alteration ended up unsatisfactorily.

 

I used to get length and width alterations made to shirts, but they're just never the same once altered. They don't hang right. Tellingly, I seem to have binned or sold all those shirts apart from one. It's OTR only from now on - even if it means frustratingly not being able to buy certain stuff.

At 5'6" it really is a problem to get the proper length. There needs to be a place for shorter made clothes. They have big and tall why nothing for short?
