Default To tuck or not to tuck...

To tuck or not to tuck, that is the question!

So, just an informal poll. I usually always wear an undershirt whenever I wear a button down shirt or golf style shirt (not with a tee shirt). I never gave much thought to this but what I do is tuck my undershirt into my boxers (or boxer briefs) and then tuck my button down shirt just into my pants. I always thought that this was just the way you did it. For one thing, it keeps the undershirt from bunching up with my regular shirt.

Ok, my sister in law was staying with us this past weekend and noticed that I tucked and was wondering why. She said "No one does that!" and thought that it kind of looked tacky. My response was "Why are you so worried about what I do with my underwear?" and "Who cares what it looks like cause I am the only one who really sees it other then my wife (who doesn't care)."

My view is too each his own. I don't consider it a fashion thing as it is an undergarment that really isn't visible anyway. She couldn't provide a valid reason why you shouldn't other then it looks "tacky." To which I responded "who sees it anyway?"

So, do you tuck in your undershirt? Thoughts?

i dont think it matters. living in the desert, i really hate tucking in shirts and especially hate wearing 2 shirts. if i didnt have to look semi- professional, i would wear nothing but basketball jerseys or t-shirts with the sleves cut off.

im probably the wrong one to ask. i do know tucking a rolled up pair of socks into your underwear is considered uncool.

I'd say stick with what's comfortable. Personally, whether it's a beater or t, I've never tucked, but hey, to each their own. :)

I tuck my t-shirts into my pants but not my underwear. That's really strange dude! You need to listen to your sister in law.


BTW: Is she hot?

Not regular tee shirts?just the undershirt. When I worked in sales, I wore a suit to work. It was, undershirt tucked into boxers to keep it taught, then the button down shirt which was just tucked into the pants, not the boxers. What would be a good reason NOT to do this?

I don't tuck a regular tee shirt if that's all I am wearing?

And, yes, she is hot, not that it matters much. Her and my wife are both attractive.

There's only one thing that should be tucked into your underwear...and its not an item of clothing

Well I hear all of this but I am looking for reasons. I need a reason why you don't tuck other then "Just because!"



What's the practical reason?

And, doesn't an undershirt constitute "underwear"??

My answer would be that you dont tuck a pullover/jumper/sweater (whatever you guys call it) into your pants.

You would look like a dork.

To be fair, I dont suppose your undergarments are exposed to the general public on that regular a basis so the 'dork' effect is a reduced one compared to the above scenario.

I don't have any scientific reasoning to hand.
