I'm in my mid 20s and almost never tuck a shirt in. I know you are supposed to tuck a dress shirt otherwise it would look sloppy. But if you are wearing dress pants or chinos, you should ALWAYS tuck in your dress shirt correct?

My other question is... is it wrong to tuck in dress shirts into jeans? I think it looks very funny and i googled it and many people say it looks bad. I enjoy wearing button down casual shirts with jeans and never tuck it in the spring and summer. Those shirts are like Lacoste/Armani Exchange though so those aren't suppose to be tucked ever right?

And during the fall, i like wearing my blazer with jeans with a dress shirt untucked. It's those blazers where you can wear with anything unlike a suit jacket where you need to match the pants otherwise they look tacky as people call it. But if you are wearing a blazer with jeans, untuck is the best thing right?

Would i be correct to say that you should only tuck a dress shirt in if you are wearing dress pants? I think anyone that wears t shirts or polos and tucks it into jeans look horrible.

I think it all depends on the shirt itself. If the length of the tails is longer you would not want to wear the shirt untucked as it would drape too far down and would just look stupid. But I think there are some dress shirts with shorter tails where you could get away with leaving them untucked.

Depends on the shirt, the jeans, your opinion etc. I think you can go either way on this one. Btw, what brand a shirt is doesn't affect whether or not you tuck it in. Also, BUY BETTER SHIT!

Unless, blazer, jeans and shirt are all noticeably casual, then no, it is not the best thing. It looks like you forgot to tuck. Ok, that's probably just my opinion.

No. Refer to my previous answers, along with Chakmak's post. Also, next time, try the search engine before starting threads on topics that have been answered before. Most won't answer such repetitive threads, including me most of the time.
