With all the new styles emerging and the idea of the one kind of shirt tuck being lost somewhere in between, we are still fans of the old school way. Think of it this way, you do this chore every single day, so why not do it the right way? The Ideal Way To Tuck Your Shirt In The goal of an ideal shirt tuck is to make your torso look flat and smooth. In this case, wrinkles are a big no-no and so is excess showcasing of the dreaded muffin-top. © theartofmanliness A proper tuck should have a clean 'gig line' which is a military term for the line formed straight down your upper body. A properly tucked shirt should sit so that the cloth with the buttons lines up precisely with the fly of your trousers. Your belt buckle and trouser button should ideally be in the same line. © telegraph uk One must also know when to tuck in their shirt as there's more than one kind tuck out there. They all depend on what kind of shirt you're wearing, the occasion, comfort and more. Here are a few types of tucks you can experiment with and nail the perfect tuck every single time: The Loose Tuck © Wikihow Loose tucking is the most basic method of tucking and one that every man knows.

Use your favourite belt to accessorize and you're good to go. The Underwear Tuck © thedistilledman The name of the method might suggest differently but this does not involve tucking your shirt into your underpants. Don't do that under any circumstances. This is a layered tucking method for when there's an undershirt involved. Method: In an attempt to get a creaseless finish, tuck your undershirt inside your underwear. Then tuck your shirt in the way you normally would. This should put an end to all the extra fabric bulging at your waistband. The Military Tuck © theartofmanliness.com Used by the armed forces, the military tuck is a foolproof shirt-tucking method. When the fabric of your shirt begins to bulge out of the waistband, wrinkled and unruly, it doesn't make a good impression. This method cancels out that problem and will give you a perfectly in place tuck all day. Method: Follow the same procedure as the loose tuck but run your thumbs around the front to the sides of your waistband before buttoning up, smoothening any creases. Pinching the fabric at each side and folding it back on itself will create the ideal fit. Tucking is such a simple step but it can impact your whole look. Ensuring the best fit possible to your clothing is in your hands now. Quite literally. Cheers!
