    Should a Shirt Be Tucked into Your Trousers?

    This idea for a thread, I must say, is blatantly stolen from the German-language Thiazi Forum.

    At first it may seem a trivial question, really - but as the German saying says Kleider machen Leute (clothes make people), style is important, and as such dressing accordingly is a must.

    Now, how do you feel does one dress properly in regards to wearing your shirt - should it be tucked into the trousers, should it be kept outside the trousers, does it depend on the general style of dress, or circumstances etc.?

    Well, discuss this ever-so-important topic as you will!
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    If it's for casual wear then it really doesn't matter imo. Personally, I generally wouldn't during the daytime as I don't think it looks smart enough, but it depends on the circumstances.

    I try to let my style be guided by what is appropriate for the setting. I don't want to look hot and sweaty in a pub for instance, and I don't want to be shivering either. So if it's warm, then shirt tails out, top button open and either cuffs open or sleeves loosely rolled up can look alright. I might even consider opening the second top button as the night draws on, but by then I'm probably starting to look very laid back.
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    would completely depend on where you was going, I would never show up to court or a formal dinner with it un-tucked however when I used to go clubbing I used to leave it out.
    Our own sickness is what has caused todays problems, and our own physical, but above all; spiritual health, will be what delivers us to a new Golden Age.

    Ordnung muss sein. Style and class comes with every educated and proper man. So, yes, a shirt should be tucked in.

    I always tuck in my button down shirts if I have them buttoned. In the summer I might just put them on as an over-shirt and leave them loose though. Tucking in t-shirts makes you look like an idiot. Trust me, a chump in my German class use to tuck in t shirts to try and look paramilitary.

    Generally, shirt tucked in is best and most refined, but shirt worn out doesn't always look too casual or slovenly. I voted it depends.

    Tucked in t-shirts look, to me, very metrosexual and make me giggle.

    It might be necessary.........

    If you have a Permit, or a Duty to go CCW, tucked-out is an easy way to conceal the fact that you are "carrying".
    Of course there are a variety of ways to go CCW, though.
    This is just an easy one.

    Polo shirts: personal taste, I prefer un-tucked

    Dress / sport shirts: should always be tucked in unless the shirt has a square hem (f.e. often linen shirts are like this for summer wear), and is thus designed to be worn un-tucked
