I just discovered that there is an entire chain of clothing stores, dedicated mostly to shirts that are not meant to be tucked in.

They are called UNTUCKit. https://www.untuckit.com/
25 locations; originally based out of NYC.

I'm not a fan of an untucked shirt. I even tuck in T-Shirts.

My guess is that this style would appeal to the man (and now they have women's clothing, too) with the large stomach.
Rather than wear a tucked in shirt that shows off straining buttons, you go loose and allow the draping to disguise more of your gut.
Makes sense.

Poll
1. Tuck or No tuck?
Tuck, pretty much always
Tuck, usually
It depends entirely on the situation
A bit of both; you can't really spot a trend with me
No tuck, usually
No tuck, pretty much always
Other?
2. By the way, do you do up your top shirt button?
No
Sometimes
Usually
Yes
Yes, if I'm also wearing a tie
I actually leave more than one button undone
None of my shirts even have buttons
Other?

I usually don't tuck in my T-shirts. I also don't tuck in my sweatshirts. However, if it's a colder day, and I wear a long-sleeve shirt underneath a T-shirt, I will tuck in the long-sleeve shirt (but usually won't tuck in the T-Shirt itself). If the T-shirt is really long (I have one or two this way) then I'll tuck it in, though.

If I'm wearing a collared shirt (polo or button-up), I will almost always tuck it in, even if I'm wearing jeans. I usually don't button up the top button unless the neckline is really big on the polo shirt (which I only have one shirt that this really applies to), or if I'm wearing a tie on a button-up shirt.

I also always zip up my pants.

I tuck button-up shirts, but nothing else. If the shirt is cut right, it can look really good not tucked in, but whenever I try to do that I just feel self conscious and sloppy so I end up tucking it in anyway.

And to back up your guess: I have a flat stomach. If it weren't, I could see me leaving it out of the pants.

Tucking depends nearly solely on occasion for me. 95% of the time everything is untucked. Sometimes my tees get tucked in colder months when I will be outside. Dress occasions get tucked shirts.

Luckily my office and my position do not require ultra formal office wear. "Business professional" which I adhere to more than many of my workmates.

My dad is real old school. He still tucks everything. Looks weird to me to see him in a tee with nothing over it and having it tucked. Even short sleeved shirts.

Usually tucked. T-shirts can be 50/50.

I have one collared shirt that has the buttons kind of low so I button the top button. Other than that I never button the top button, even when wearing ties. (and hopefully I never have to wear a tie again)

I tuck in most shirts.
If the shirt - tshirt or shortsleeve buttondown - is short enough, I'll leave it untucked.
Exception is wearing t shirt and shorts or lounge pants just hanging around the house.
If i'm wearing a flannel on top of a T, the T is tucked in and the flannel isn't.
Only time I wear a longsleeve shirt is in an "fancy" occasion and it's tucked in.
I button the top if I'm wearing a tie, but even then I'll usually unbutton it and just rely on the tie.
I saw one of those UnTUCK stores but didn't go in, I was tempted but since I always tuck I didn't know how it would work.

I wear a white undershirt everyday under whatever I'm wearing and that always gets tucked. Other than that the only time I tuck is if it's a dress shirt.

I button the top button of my polos and dress shirts. The latter only if I'm wearing a tie.

No one has tucked in a t-shirt since 1983, and they looked like dorks back then too.

The only people tucking in shirts should be undertakers and stockbrokers.

And I would love Untuckit... if they didn't try to sell me a basic buttondown shirt for $80.

I don't tuck, I'm retired and done with that nonsense. Wear Hawaiian shirts 95% of the time and t-shirts or sweatshirts the rest.

Go to weddings and funerals untucked.

Alas, on occasion, I forget to zip up the pants. modest

Tucking in t-shirts? Really? Even if I had the coolest belt known to man (obviously Batman's utility belt) I still wouldn't tuck in my t-shirts. I'm 6' and around a 155 in good shape and 175 in my current shape and still considered thin by most standards (I just don't have a big frame). It has nothing to do with hiding a gut, it's all about comfort. Also my wife hates the tucked-in look so when the rare event comes up that I need to dress nice, even then it's untucked unless I'm wearing a suit. I do live in Texas where it's regularly 95+ in the summer, for whatever that's worth.

Edit: That said, I completely forgot I tuck in my uniform shirt every day for work. But on the job I DO have a pretty sweet utility belt.

Only tuck collared button up, of wearing slacks. Generally this means I'm in the office. Top button wide, no tie.

There is the partial tuck if you have a pretty sweet belt buckle, but even then, you could only get away with that in Texas.

Very true, but then you gotta put on the boots and hat and that's too much work for me.

Sampling 11 years of photos it appears that wearing long sleeve unbuttoned and untucked shirts is my casual style. Long sleeves because I've been self-conscious about my skinny arms and untucked in order to conceal something I might have on me. I usually tuck in the tee-shirt. Of course, I dress appropriately of out respect for my companions or funerals and other occasions of state.

Today my dress shirt was tucked and buttoned all the way up since I had to attend a funeral and wear a jacket and tie. Tomorrow I'll be back to untucked and unbuttoned at the top. I prefer the casual look.

Your guess would be wrong.

I would not dream of tucking in a shirt. I live in desert continent. Right now (as I eat lunch) the temperature already exceeds human body core, and it will climb further over the course of the next 6 or 7 hours.

Tucking in a shirt would not be a matter of mere discomfort.

I take no small amusement from observing people who do tuck their shirts in (and do up that top button). Ruddy-faced, dripping with sweat (in huge patches under their arms and across their backs), weakened by incipient heat-stroke... No thanks, not for me.

I don't know. I am a large man (much smaller than I used to be, but still very large). I have a 46" waist, but, even at my largest (54") I always tucked in my shirts. I don't find that an untucked shirt "hides" anything, since, on someone my size, there might be a few inch gap between my shirt and pants that is obviously the gut pushing it out. While tucked in, the lines you created are actually better looking.

I wear an un-tucked t-shirt, 100% of the time, and about 90% of the time I have an un-tucked short sleeved button up shirt on top of that. The top two or three buttons on the button up, are always buttoned up with the rest unbuttoned.

It's not a good look, but am I going to do? I hate it when the wind blows my shirt around...

[As a point of total transparency, the last time I did not wear a t-shirt, was 14 months ago, but there was a 21 gun salute involved, and I "had" to wear a suit]

I am enhanced with a very long torso compared to my body. And normal sized arms. This means a couple things: long sleeve shirts don't fit me well. The arms are ALWAYS too long. And usually the shirt is not long enough. As I have gotten older my stomach has gotten bigger which adds to the problem. It is not uncommon to have a shirt that is too big around, but not long enough. I had this problem before I got fatter as well.

Result: Doesn't matter if I do tuck my shirt in. It comes untucked pretty much right away. SO I don't bother tucking them in anyway. Plus to be honest, I think tucking your shirt in makes you look like a tool. But obviously, I am biased.

Not wanting to tuck in shirts and otherwise participate in the dystopian nightmare that is business casual attire is what led me to pursue a career with no dress code.

That being said, I always tuck shirts in when I wear a button down.
