you can always cut for short. Maybe not the sleeves.
Anyhow its easier to cut than to add. BTW, for big and tall theres: regular clothes tall, very tall from big and tall. If you fall between the two catagories your screwed.
Im in my 20's and my torso will look short if I tuck in.
I don't think dress shirts, like legit dress shirts, should be worn un-tucked. if someone wants to add 'personality' or 'flare' to their dress shirt in my opinion it best be done through the way you wear your cuffs and what you do with your buttons.
Agree - some shirts just can't be worn untucked and others are specifically designed for it, e.g. Folk shirts, which sometimes have a detail of some kind at the base of the garment, clearly meant to be on display. I have one or two dress shirts and they'd look like nightgowns if I wore them untucked.
I just bought a Glanshirt shirt. I basically wear all my shirts untucked except for when I have to wear a blazer with them.
It's a little long though, not sure if it's too long but I have a small frame and I like how the untucked look makes me look streamlined.
It's a tartan style in dark green/ navy, which is smart enough to look nice with dress pants as with jeans.
For now it's long but not overly long. It's not a straight hem and the front and back just reaches the inside leg.
Any opinions on the length? I haven't washed it yet. It's a 100% cotton woven shirt, I don't know if it'll stretch during wear and/ or shirnk after washing.
I think it looks ridiculous, to be honest. David Beckham or not. Never settle for a compromise in clothing as I have learned over the years (from being a newbie here, I went to working in high-end menswear just a couple months ago): do it the way you want it. If it's too long and the cut of the shirt allows it to be tailored, let it be tailored. If it is too long and you can't bring it to a tailor without destroying the fit and look, then sell it.
More often than not, these cases where you can't make up your mind about clothing, turn out to be delayed throw-aways.
