    I usually tuck in my shirt. Of course I only ever wear collared shirts, even around the house.


    I always wear a belt. This means I am always prepared and can quickly unzip it and use it to strike her down before she finishes her sentence.

    How do you feel about the good old front tuck (with obligatory buckle)? Or about people who tuck in T-shirts? I'm a fan of neither. Of course, I'm not a fan of shirt tucking in general.

    I have to ware belts or my pants fall off. But not belts with Texas buckles. 4 to 6 pounds of metal under my navel would just defeat the purpose.

    A nice old leather belt is a necessity with or without tucking the shirt in. I always feel as if I'm half dressed if I'm not wearing one.
    However a belt with a fancy new-fangled buckle is an abomination.
    This is what belt should look like-


    A square buckle looks better of course.

    Typically people with a sense of fashion wear the shirt tucked in and with a belt.

    But yeah I agree, I don't like shirts tucked in and just like that.

    Tucking in = formal, untucked = casual. All a matter of taste and preference I guess. Belts are a must if your pants are falling down. Or, suspenders with a tucked in shirt. Not a t shirt though.

    Why does your family think you dress like a chav again? Dear god man belts cost like 3 dollars at walmart.

    I don't like tucked in shirts. i dont like tucked in polos or even like tucke din button downs except in formal situations. It all makes me think of old people.

    I don't tuck in polo's and I do not own a single button-down shirt.

    Nor, incidentally, would I swap my trusted suspenders for a belt when wearing a suit.

    I thought you only used a belt if your trousers were falling down...

    also theoretically if you own collared shirts you likely own a button down. plus you are not what i would consider old...... old is my father. My father is in his sixties, believes it is the fifties and often tucks in his tshirts.

    Edit: also rhy don't be insulted by the use of the word chav. it was meant in jest and because i believe you said that once about your manner of dress.

    I only ever tuck in collared button-down shirts when I've got a dress jacket and tie to go with it (with belt of course). If I don't have the jacket I say it, take off the tie, and go casual.

    If you're buying a belt for €5,- , then you're doing it wrong.

    A belt is a must, I wear it all the time.

    I've always felt wearing a shirt and tie and not wearing a belt looks a little sloppy. Tucking in your t-shirt looks bad whether you wear a belt or not.

    I always wear a belt, even if I'm wearing jeans and a t-shirt, because I don't feel fully dressed without one.

    The formal and casual thing is how I typically apporach this issue. If it's business related, it gets tucked in, but I'm going out to dinner with friends or to the bar, it stays out.

    The thing I've found hardest to adjust to in WI is where people tuck in polo shirts. That's just ... doing it wrong. Men wandering around with tucked-in polos. I want to take them aside and explain the facts of life.
