Tucked torso wear

Post by squatty on Wed Apr 10, 2013 10:50 am

Is there anything wrong about tucking your torso wear in your pants?
I tend to tuck any shirt and T-shirt I wear in my pants, and anything else which is tuck-able, except jackets or thick woolly clothing (which are not meant to be tucked obviously).
I ask because recently someone in Tehran told me "Dude do not tuck your T-shirt in your pants, it is the way very low class people dress" and I was like WTF I'm dressing like that since ever.
I don't know why they don't like tucked wear, it gives a more clean and trimmed look IMO. and also makes you appear more manly and muscular.
I noticed many people in west tuck their wear too, including Mark Rippetoe, now is he a low class people?
And what does tucking your wear have to do with being low/high class?
I told that person "F*** class, I dress the way I like"

I used to tuck my shirt in my pants because I would look really skinny if I didn't. Now that's not necessary anymore.

There's nothing wrong with it, f*** everyone who says there is. I HAD to do it because my upper body is really short so shirts were always way too long, I looked stupid.

Don't give a **** about what people think.

Tucking your shirt in or not won't determine which 'society class' you're coming from...rather the price of the shirt you're tucking in or not :D

Don't worry about it. The only time I don't dress casual is when I'm MADE (wife) to.
She does dress me better than I dress myself, but I'm hardly comfortable.....

Nice fitting shirt tucked in+nice leather belt+trousers or jeans+smart shoes=smart looking guy. 8 year olds playing in the garden don't tuck their shirts in. Men do.

An slightly better looking tucker:


:mrgreen:

IMO people who hate tucking are either homophobes trying to camouflage their asses under their shirts (we had one kid in school who was afraid of tucking because he felt insecure of getting raped), or are just jealous of the neatness dressing of us tuckers.
Anyway, most people in my area tuck anything they wear just like me, but Tehran people are just a lot different than my area.

I might add that i'm studying economics in Luxembourg...so one day I'll probably work in a bank and have to wear suits all the time. I'm just enjoying my tuck free time till then :D My idol for the next 20 years is Don Draper, after that I'll switch to Roger Sterling ;)

Dress shirt / button down shirt = tuck into pants.

T-shirt/polo/sweatshirt = do not tuck into pants. Basically if you could wear something with a suit, tuck, if not, don't tuck. That's a good rule of thumb.

It will also depend on the local customs in your country.

I won't answer this, no matter how much I may or may not be burning to... but let's just say that Rippetoe is famous for a book that promotes the squatmorning, not for his guide to sharp dressing for men.

I tuck my T-shirt in while working because the tool belt tends to pull my shorts down and Plumbers Crack is not cool

:^: X 2 against plumber's crack for sure!

I also tuck but under the right circumstances. If I happen to be wearing pants that call for a belt (rare, but will happen more often with my new job in an office environment) I tuck the undershirt, but not the overshirt if it's a sweater or something like that, but I will tuck if it's collared or button up shirt.

I usually don't tuck the undershirt into my exercise pants or shorts unless I'm doing HeSPUs or going out into the cold.

This. I'd never tuck a normal shirt/Tshirt. Only collared shirts... and not always. I just use a 'scale' of sorts. Sleeves rolled up and shirt open/untucked, wearing jeans is lower on the scale of looking sharp than sleeves down, buttoned up, tucked in, wearing slacks... etc.

As for Rip, I think his forum is one of the most retarded and close-minded of all internet strength boards. He himself seems like good people but as he says, is good for nothing now except for commenting on squat form vids which is kinda sad. I think he's a cool guy with good advice in general but if I thought of 'class' I would not think of Mark Rippetoe.

Everyone called me an "annoying troll" there and Rip banned (via deactivation...) my account (despite claiming he never bans anyone). his excuse was "Well I didn't ban anyone! I just deactivate some usernames..."
He is very ill tempered.

Yeah, if you oppose the idea of gaining 100 lbs. of fat for every 75 lbs. gained on your squat, the cultists can get quite touchy...

Not to mention that after a year or so, once the chubby guys can deadlift almost double bodyweight, they get all stuck up and try to write/advise like Rippetoe does.
