To Tuck Or Not To Tuck.

This is a common sight now a days.

Not just Shah Rukh Khan, but even the aad aadmi looks like this:

I simply cannot wear a shirt which has not been tucked in. I do wear safari shirts which are not tucked in.

I do believe that the normal shirt deserves to be tucked in. The power of brain washing I guess.

Or is there something more sinister at work?

    I am a “tucker” as well , even with T Shirts ! Guess we are “old fashioned” and definitely not part of the “Y” Generation !

    • Rummuser says:

      Nandu, I can assure you that I am glad that I am not of the Y generation. As fascinating as the hindsight may be!

      • Nandu Pillai says:

        I think there are some who begin with tucked in shirts but when they lift their arms or bend or whatever, the shirt tails give up & slowly migrate out , so they just leave them in despair . But I tell you what , on the rare occasion I go buying new shirts , I wish I adopted a hanging out style – shopping would be even quicker !

        • Rummuser says:

          I am increasingly wearing kurta/pajama as the most comfortable. I use tracksuit bottoms or knitted shorts and tea shirts for the walk/exercise routine and rarely wear trousers/shirts.

        • Nandu Pillai says:

          At home I am always in white cotton Kurta+Pyjama – most comfortable . I have given away so many of my “office” shirts after retirement ; my driver often looks better dressed than me now !

    Any blog with with Shahrukh is a winner in my book! As for shirt tucking… I think it depends on the situation…

    • Rummuser says:

      Nice to see you here SRK fan. I agree about the situation, but I wouldn’t quite agree to SRK style of unbuttoning the shirt would you?

    Long time non-tucker here. Something about feeling the wind rush up under the shirt and bathe the body… 🙂

    I’m a cold creature and tuck in to avoid draughts! I am told by you know who, that it is old fashioned!

    LOLOL! I love that cartoon. and true reverse psychology. works every time. well. almost.
    sorry rummy. i’m a non tucker. but NOT a half tucked half outer. that’s just stupid looking. and i think it would feel weird!
    but. they think it’s sexy. kinda like the pants that drag 3 feet from their crotch. who thinks THAT looks good?

    On the whole, I don’t like men untucked when they wear collared shirts. Looks stupid – other than on the very young. or when, like your first photo, they are in a state of advancing undress. Oh, my, yes, bring it on. T-shirts – that’s different. They look stupid tucked in – unless a man’s waist line is immaculate. So Nandu whose waistline – so I gather from photographic evidence – is swelt is safe.

    I myself am both a tucker and non-tucker. When in Miss Moneypenny mode (pencil skirts and heels) I do tuck my immaculate white shirt in. When I am full of abandon in my own abode where few will find me I love wearing oversized men’s shirts. Covering your bottom they are like dresses. And generous.. So the question of tucking never comes up. Lush.

    May I suggest, Ramana, that soon you may raise the subject of belts, braces and shoes, and man bags.

    Yours,
    U

    • Rummuser says:

      That is a top class idea Ursula. I shall indeed write about belts and braces, shoes and men’s bags.

      At home, you may try a lungi to go with your outsized shirts. It is the most comfortable dress that I can think of to wear at home. (http://rummuser.com/?p=6367)

    I’m not bothered one way or the other. Tuck it in, leave it out, who cares? There was a fashion in the UK at one time to leave your shirt out, so that’s what I did. But the style since then has been to tuck it in.

    it depends for me – on the season and type of shirt related to what is on the bottom half….what the occasion is and how I really want to look for the world 🙂
