    The bottom should be this style, though some people disagree and think that only square bottom shirts should be worn untucked. I find that the squared bottom is too boxy, visually widens the hips and interrupts the vertical flow from the shirt to the trousers.

    I also do not press the shirt, the wrinkles add more texture to the fabric.

    Kent, if those are indeed Jantzen, you have just convinced me to make an order from them. How do I contact them?

    When I do the french cuff I make a statement in the cuff itself by either wearing odd cuffs or have then only done up on the outside (so it flaps a little).

    Both send the concept to me, of I am aware that this does not go, and going past that to make it go....I'm going beyond the stereotype.

    I do agree on the very well fitted shirt, it really pulls the sharp image in, broken nicely with the u shaped untucked-ness.

    Let me be a contrarian here and put this out there: Don't you think the whole untucked shirt thing is a bit past its day? I am in the NYC area and every guy, who knows zilch about style, puts on the uniform of faded jeans and untucked striped shirt for the weekend. I remember being in Italy in 1998 seeing this style for the first time (as the Italians are always way ahead on style). As members of this board, do you think that this "style" is past its day? Myself, I stopped doing this back in '03 when I realized I was starting to look like everyone else. Clearly, a tucked in shirt is much more neat and, IMO, presentable. Usually when every Kyle, Todd, and Scott adopt a style and its gone mainstream its time to re-examine the situation.

    Be forewarned: don’t expect your order to come overnight. Ricky is like god: he works in mysterious ways.

    Kent: how many tires did it take for Ricky to get the sizing right?

    I like to tuck buttonup shirts. It's my preference but when I see a guy untucked that has a well fitting shirt (a la Kent Wangster) then I think it's a good casual look. Most guys who are untucked are doing so with an ill-fitting shirt so it just looks bad, and would probably look just as bad tucked in with its mushroom effect at the waistband.

    Woah woah woah there Sally, no one said anything about faded jeans and striped shirts. And keep those squae toed KCs in the box.

    I dont think you can disregard an untucked shirt due to the AmJack. Must I stop wearing odd jackets also? It was here before and will be here after. And anyways, the Italians are still doing it, specifically the Milanese, so in your logic it must still be ok

    Cheers,

    Sazon: Yes, it's very important to differentiate yourself from that look. Darker jeans are less casual and therefore not as incongruous with the more formal shirt. Also, the shirts that I wear with this style are even more conservative than what I would wear with a suit: only solids and very subtle stripes. When you have a jacket on you can wear a bolder shirt but when you're showing so much shirt by having it untucked a bold shirt may become too offensive to the eye. Tucking in with jeans seems wrong to me. I don't think I can pull it off.

    Jon: The first shirt was wearable, the second fit well and the third and all the ones after are perfect. It's time for you to hop on the bandwagon.

    Ditto.

    It really is. I've been reading about other people ordering Jantzen since the AA / Modernman transition days...

    lol, I was wearing shirts untucked with jeans before 1998. (and people have been wearing shirts tucked into jeans for god-knows how long, too) You're talking about two bread and butter items of clothing which have two ways of being worn; nobody is breaking any boundries by tucking or untucking.
