    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.

    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.

    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?

    Untucked dress shirts always look sloppy from any angle.

    This is cheating, you are wearing a blazer over the shirt.

    I say all of the above look ridiculous.

    the above example doesn't count. If you have a blazer, tie, tie bar, and a pocket square of course you'll be tucking in the shirt...it doesn't apply to what people have been discussing.

    I'm going to go out on the limb and say going for all that detail and going sock-less is awful. In my opinion (I may be the only one) think pants without socks is always a bad combo.

    Jeans need a little tapering, otherwise looks good
