    I have a dress shirt that I also where as a sport shirt. How much should show underneath my jacket? I usually wear a North Face type jacket so I think the lenth is 33" or so? It's definitely a fit jacket type. But the shirt I wear underneath shows maybe 2 inches outside? Just looking in the mirror, it seems a bit uncoordinated.

    Don't know what a "fit jacket type" actually is but if the question you are actually asking is about whether an untucked shirt should be seen below a jacket, the answer is 'none'.

    If the jacket is being worn over a tucked short, the answer is still .none'.


    A photograph would have been a big help.

    This will more shirt showing underneath

    Here is an example of similar shirt but imagine the shirt going down to the groin area more

    The shirt in the top one is ok - looks like an irrelevant accident. However the short going down "the groin area" in the lower one looks like a dreadful mismatch.

    Why? Is it just too long?

    What would the fix be? Wear a shorter shirt or wear a longer jacket?

    I think style questions go right out the window when wearing a North Face jacket.

    Style is not fashion.

    Tuck in your shirt or wear a longer (grown up) jacket. An untucked shirt that is longer than one's jacket just looks sloppy and you're not going to get a proper shirt that's shorter than your jacket untucked (if you do, it will probably show your stomach when you lift your arms up).

    Yeah, what's wrong with wearing a sport shirt underneath with sport shorts?

    ^If it's warm enough for shorts, ditch the jacket. If it's cool enough for pants, tuck the shirt in. Problem solved either way.
