You should definitely tuck in the button down. There's no two ways about that. I don't know if you have a really awesome tie you want to show off or not, but you could always wear a tie and a shirt under nice V-neck sweater and look nice but not come off as overdressed for school or hanging out or whatever you plan to be doing with your tie on.
As alternative to the v-ncek, how about a thin cardigan? I think that looks very sharp. And definitely tuck in that shirt in any case.
whats so bad about it? i mean its nothing great but its not awful
It's a business tie and a dress shirt at a party. It's jeans with a business tie and dress shirt. It's the sartorial version of the mullet. Business up top, party on the bottom. An oxford shirt with a button down collar and it's a totally different story.
The most important part of style is understanding situational dressing. If you're bent on wearing ties, get a job that requires you to wear one. Go to restaurants that insist that you wear them. At the very least, adjust your entire wardrobe so that a tie wouldn't look entirely pedestrian.
I think it's a tricky thing. SuperBobo succeeds because there's a fascinating and almost offhanded combination not only of patterns but also of textures. I think a jeans-and-tie combinaton often can look a little contrived, forced. Unless you're willing and able to push the envelop as SuperBobo does, I'd rather just see jeans and v-neck/cardi with tee, or v-neck/cardi with dress shirt/tie and dress pants.
noob here (obviously) but is it really dat serious. wear it how u wanna wear it. me, i wear ties with button down shirts NOT tucked in, top button not buttoned, sleeves rolled up, with fitted jeans, and chucks. sometimes a wear a button down sweater vest with it and i get compliments all the time. my advice would be to make the look your own. the only deciding factor is that you just be confident with it. if u wear it and realize u don't like it, just change it next time u wear it. but again, i'm just a noob.
