    all that said, i do (obviously) strongly disagree with you last statement.
    tucked-in is just the most elegant of all options.
    lol, I love the 2nd pic! Are those pants or knickers?

    I like the link in Russel's post... I think Clint is showing his age, and the ultra-high rise pants that go near his armpits and tucked polo just make him look like he's about to check into a nursing home.

    yes, in the early seventies, flared pants where all the rage. no flared pants? you boring old fart!
    did they look better than straight, naturally tapered legs? of course not.
    fashion moved on, flared pants became the laughing stock, and straight, naturally tapered legs continued to look good regardless.

    I'm not a huge fan of polo shirts... this is the only one I own, but in black. This particular shirt would not look good tucked in IMO, so I think it also depends on the shirt.

    It really depends on the situation.

    Golf course, brunch, work place casual = always tuck.

    Date night, hanging out with the guys = untuck.

    Date night could really go either way, depending on the polo/outfit and rest of the situation. But it's rare that a properly sized polo, nice belt, chinos, and loafers/boat shoes will look anything but put together with a tuck and you can pull it off in all of those situations. Untucked isn't nearly as versatile.

    Untucked shirts have been in fashion for at least ten years. Posting photos from the 1940s just proves how outdated the tuckers' opinions are. (And please, no comments about timeless fashion. That is an oxymoron.) So far, tucked has not come back in, for ANY type of shirt, whether T, polo, or dress. (Golf is renowned for its poor fashion sense so this does not apply to anything on the course.)

    Polo shirts aren't particularly in fashion in any case, but if you want to rock the Mr. Conservative Weekend look I guess it works.

    And yes, I'm a fashion professional so I do feel justified in my strong opinion.

    fashion? i was not talking fashion. i was talking style.

    and to show you that you're not entirely right about tucked-in being out of fashion as well, here's a fairly recent image from someone who is more fashionable than you, me, or anyone else on this forum. ;-P

    i think style is far more important than fashion in any case. please present me with some images of people who wear their polo/golf shirts untucked with equal amounts of style as in my pictures and i will humbly bow to you. ;-)

    I see now that the OP is in France, and you are in the Netherlands. This could definitely be one of those things that differs across the Atlantic, like hem length etc. Nevertheless, touché:

    by the way, i wonder if the op is still on this thread. it wouldn't surprise me if his interest has dwindled some time ago and he is long gone. :-D

    Depends on the polo shirt and pants. I tuck if the shirt is plain (minimal to no design, just the small brand logo eg. Lacoste) and I'm wearing a pair of khaki pants. It's a nice, comfortable alternative to long sleeves and dress pants during the warm days of Spring.

    I do not tuck when wearing jeans.

    Untucked for me. It depends on the length of the polo.

    My polo has a long back and leaving it out looks stupid. I am 55 years old and have been lifting weights for 35 years and and physically fit. So tucking in would look better for my physique and reflect my mature age. However, I live in San Diego...and casual - even for business is still a pair of flip flops and shorts...it's hell getting old with a body of a 30 year old athlete...and trying to dress your age while not looking it. So, if the length of the shirt supports untucked (square bottom not hanging below your your butt) - I will leave it untucked...if it's too long, looks like a dress or is a collared button dress shirt..tuck the bad boy in.

    Of course, the shirt has to fit right. Make sure it's not too large. (James Bond always keeps his tshirts and polos untucked!)
    Agree - do not tuck, please. Looks quite awkward. But then, I come from the land of grunge....

    If jeans, no. Especially if it's a cotton polo. Those things suck, no offense if you like them.

    Golf, tuck it in regardless of how nice the course is or isn't. Besides, you'll play better.

    Work, tuck in...regardless of policy, so no jeans either if polo.

    Form fitting polos look silly regardless of how cut you are. Make sure you don't look like you borrowed your little brothers shirt.

    That all being said married man to married man, listen to your wife....90% of the time with style she is right.

    Wear dress shirts and bust them sleeves up if you need to tuck.

My pants do go all the way to my shoes though... and I wouldn't be caught dead in those shoes lol. Usually Sperrys or Rainbows, I do have some darker colored LS polos I wear in the winter with boots on occasion though.

    I like untucked shirts they gives the cool look. It depends where you going and what you wearing a traditional shirt or modern cut shirt.

    Untucked for the most part, it's less constraining.

    I know we're in the "style" forum, but the key words for me in maitiu's original post were "casual" and "wife".....no, not "casual wife," that's a different topic

    Casual: My wife worked in retail for a few years, so in the beginning of our marriage, I was constantly asking for fashion advice. Finally, she said this: "Wear it the way you're comfortable. If you're comfortable, you'll LOOK comfortable. If you LOOK comfortable, you'll be in style." Her point: I'm the kind of guy who prefers loose(r) clothing. So when I have everything sharp and straight and tucked in, I look like a stiff, and I don't look good. I think formal settings or work settings are one thing. If it's a casual look, wear it in whatever way YOU are comfortable.

    Wife: You have a wife. Meaning, you're not trying to impress the ladies. The way I see it is this: If your wife likes a certain look, THAT'S the correct way to wear it She's really the only "outside" opinion that matters.

    I enjoy wearing polo shirts a lot. I often wear them tucked in because it looks a bit more dressy. Tucked out looks to sporty for me. But it that is the look you're after, then just let it all hang out.

    I consider a polo shirt casual wear. Same reason I don't tuck T-shirts in.

    It depends on the lengh.

    Better tucked in than hanging over your trousers. But if the shirt isn't too long, then don't tuck it in.

    Is this strange? I just turned 29 by the way if that is of any use. Do most people just let them hang out? I am a software developer and a very organized person with my profession.
    Nothing strange about that. I tuck in my RL and other polo shirts. I think it leads to a cleaner, neater appearance. Just my opinion.
