    I can't stand squared off shirts. To bolwling-lane-esqe for me. They always seem like they should have a dragon, flames, or flaming dice on them.

    But if they DO have dragons, flames, and/or flaming dice.....

    The title is how i dress casually when not wearing a pull-over or T. I was wondering if there were any brands that were meant to be worn untucked. I am rather broad of shoulder so BR etc. when they fit, fit like sails. Was wondering what brands to look at on some upcoming trips. A.P.C or agnes B. I was thinking of. Thats about the limit of what I am willing to spend since I dont want to flip out if I spill beer on it. I have about a 17.5 neck. I haveone shirt that fits really well its a bcbg shirt but i dont think he makes mens clothes anymore.

    All my Theory, Hugo Boss and Armani Exchange shirts have a cut that looks best untucked...

    Takumi makes beautiful handcrafted shirts in Japan that are meant to be worn with jeans. Take a look at their website at www.takumiclothing.com

    Very elegant - wonder what they go for.

    like most things, it's situational. if someone's wearing a true dress shirt, one that drapes down to their thighs untucked with a pair of boot cut jeans just to show the world they're a little bit serious, a little bit rock n' roll, they're 100% jerk. however, intentionally short button down dress shirts (though i would be skeptical to even call them that) by steven alan, band of outsiders or oak nyc look great untucked.

    personally i would never wear a dress shirt with jeans because i don't believe in tucking ANYTHING into a pair of jeans unless it's a bottom layer. unless you're james dean or getsmart it's quite a difficult task to tuck a shirt into jeans without looking like a mid-western tourist decked in kirkland gear.

    Flat head shirts look great untucked ( as established ) but most western cowboy style shirts are cut a smidgin shorter and look best untucked. All my western shirts tend to be shorter in the body. Most of my normal shirts look crap untucked, if its a jermyn street fit its probably too long to hang out. That said I do have a french connection linen shirt thats great untucked, so Id guess more casual shirts ( linen, grandad collars and the like ) look cool untucked.

    Where can you buy Takumi???? How much are the shirts and jeans????

    I liked this quote, "I will make one last attempt to hook up by trying to coax two big girls who are also ordering gyros to coming back to my place for 'after hours'! When they say no I will make fun of them for being fat!"

    My preference, too, is for a slightly rounded hem instead of a squared-off bottom. It looks more natural. Squared-off makes me think of Kramer.

    I'm having a sport-shirt with a short tail tailor-made for me, and hopefully it will turn out so that I can wear it untucked without looking like a jackass.

    I always wear dress shirts untucked unless I'm wearing a suit. I feel weird if they're tucked in, but most of my dress shirts (except for ones to wear with suits) are short so it's not an issue.

    I usually go with a dress shirt, unbuttoned and untucked, with a t-shirt under it. Usually the pants are light khakis, and a pair of sandals as well.

    Im completely on the fence about this.. If I have a sweater,coat, or blazer over my button-up, I always tuck in ; both with jeans and slacks.
    Though in the summer when its just a button-up, it depends. Im 6'3", and wear Medium shirts, so if im not tucking in , the shirt tail goes below my belt about 3 inches, which doesnt look too sloppy.
    I dont know why I feel akward tucking in, I see other people and they look fine. But on me I just dont 'feel' it.

    Perhaps you fear giving off the "Hi, my name's Chet, and I've been in youth ministry for three years!" vibe. I know that's my concern when in the same situation.
