    yes

    someone mentioned BB - I have never found a BB shirt that looks good untucked. Way too long, tent-like fit, poofy arms and low armholes. Their "slim" and "extra slim" fits are decent work beater shirts though. I just picked up a stack of the "slim fit" ones at the 1/2 off sale for work, which I do each year. That is all they are good for ime though; I wouldn't wear them casually due to length and poofy arms.

    ^ The extra slim fit sport shirts I have fit pretty well and have very high armholes and slimmer sleeves. Not as high as an epaulet or gant rugger shirt but still decent for mid tier otr. The dress shirts have also been recut in recent seasons.

    I've got a couple of the ESF OCBD that can be worn untucked because of the amount of shrinking the oxford cloth does over time. I wear them almost exclusively when I;m wearing a casual button down shirt, but I usually tuck, and I usually don't have a problem with the slim or extra slim sleeves being too baggy. Normally having the sleeves rolled up also helps this.
