TO TUCK OR NOT TO TUCK?

All about Tyrwhitt casual shirts, when to tuck them in, and when to leave them loose.

Our casual shirt fit

Inspired by the modern gent’s flexible wardrobe, we’ve given our casual shirts a revamp: shorter in length, trimmer in the body with less volume, and with slimmer sleeve openings. It adds up to a neat fit that couldn’t be more versatile, and shirts guaranteed to cut a sharp silhouette however you wear them.

Are you in or out?

The best thing about our casual shirts? They look just as dashing tucked or untucked. The fit and hemline mean your shirt is perfectly tidy untucked, but when you do tuck in there’s enough length that it won’t slip out the top of your trousers.

You can wear it tucked into chinos with a tie for a dressed-up work look; then when the evening arrives, just untuck and drop the tie. Or, if that ‘smart casual’ event turns out to veer more smart than you’d anticipated, just hastily tuck in and no one will be any the wiser.

So, you’re an innie – or you’re an innie today, at any rate.

Utilise the tuck any time you want to add an element of smartness to your look. The fact is, it never goes amiss; a tucked-in shirt pulls together just about any outfit.

Tuck in to whatever you like. Sharpen up your shorts, finish off a two-piece suit, or step your business casual up a notch – and go ahead and add a tie or pocket square too.

Let’s hear it for the outies. Though generally considered a downtime style, the untucked shirt enjoys far wider acceptance these days – including in many of today’s offices.

Untuck on those days when comfort is key, or when you’re going for an easy, laidback look. And only when you don’t have any pesky job interviews or formal weddings to attend, of course.

Let your shirt hang rakishly loose over chinos or linens, with a pair of casual shoes.
