    Hi All,

    what's a good luxury long lasting shirt than can be worn untucked? I'd prefer button down.

    For untucked, does the shirt need to be cut differently at the bottom?

    [​IMG] Firstly, you won't get a lot of love here for untucked, formal shirts, but since you've asked... Untucked shirts should have a straight(er) hem and tend to be shorter in the body. Fairly good examples can be found at Zara and TM Lewin's John Francomb range, off the top of my head.

    The right size Charles Tyrwhitt don't look too bad untucked, I wear a Medium when tucking but I also have two Smalls that look better worn casually and untucked.

    Dress shirts shouldn't be worn untucked. Sport shirts can.

    That's a matter of personal opinion. That's like saying you can't wear sandals with jeans...if it looks good, go for it

    There isn't any luxury shirt as you ask should never be worn untucked, beside i think it is more comfortablew tucked in then out since the shirt keeps the pants and belt from chaffing the skin.

    Ralph Lauren Black Label shirts work well for this (but the dress shirts, sized by neck, are a bit on the long side). Some Purple Labels might too, depending on your build.

    Also, the OP never mentioned "dress" shirts, rather "luxury" shirts. RLPL makes both dress and casual shirting, but I'd consider all of them "luxury."

    RLBL shirts are actually designed for this; it is mentioned in the marketing. Something like "elegant both when worn tucked and casually untucked." Also, see comment about them being long, as they are perfect for tall people, like myself (6'2"). For me an untucked shirt needs to be about 32.5-32.75" to not feel too short.

    In practice, the marketing is true, and after picking up many RLBL shirts I had a number of their features duplicated in my MTM shirts. As someone in my early twenties, there are many times where a tucked in shirt is too formal, and a shirt that goes perfectly from the office tucked in to this application is a great value.

    You'll need a Cuban Shirt. There is no other type of shirt (Except Polo Shirts and T-Shirts) which can be worn untucked! [​IMG]

    This post gets a special sticker: [​IMG] Reminds me of the posts on AAAC where the Colonel Sanders wannabes talk about "dungarees" and how they can't be worn in public.
