I never tuck in my shirt, it’s just not my style. It really doesn’t matter to me what I’m wearing or how important the occasion is, it’s just not happening. Hell, I think I even want to be buried with my shirt un-tucked if possible. But I totally understand that some people like to tuck in their shirt and that’s cool with me. I’ll admit it can look nice when someone is dressed up in snazzy clothes.
What I don’t really understand is when people tuck dirty old T-shirts into jeans. Have you seen this? A regular T-shirt tuck is usually bad enough, but recently I’ve been noticing people tucking in the most ugly pro sports T-shirts with holes and mustard stains. The kind of shirt you would feel bad giving to a homeless blind man. The kind of shirt that most decent people would be embarrassed to wear underneath another shirt. Sometimes the image on the front is so big that half the picture is tucked! Would Fonzie still be cool if he always wore a shirt like this instead of a clean white one?
I’m about the farthest you can get from being a fashion expert. So maybe it represents the cusp of a new uberhip fad that is beyond my comprehension. Will it replace trucker hats and mullets as an ironicly kitschy style that only very attractive people or rock stars can pull off? Only time will tell.
