What is an Untucked Shirt?
An Untucked shirt is simply a dress shirt made to a shorter shirt length so that it looks good when it is worn untucked (or not tucked in). The style is a more casual and relaxed look that works for less formal or more casual dress code.
Back in the day, dress shirts were always worn tucked into trousers or pants. However, as our fashion styles have become more casual, the untucked look has gained popularity. If you simply wear a regular length dress shirt, the shirt length/tails end up being too long resulting in a sloppy look.
An untucked shirt is specifically designed to be worn outside of one's pants or skirt, rather than being tucked into them. Be aware that an untucked style shirt will most likely be difficult to tuck in and a tucked length shirt won’t look as sharp as you like if you wear it untucked. They are each designed for a specific use case.
Kudos to Untukit for picking up on the trend and building an entire brand on the concept of a slightly shorter shirt!
What is the ideal length of an Untucked shirt?
This is a highly polarizing topic ;) with reams of discussions on various community discussion sites!
Generally speaking, you want the back of the shirt to end around the middle of your butt :). The front of the shirt should end somewhere between the middle of your zipper or right above the bottom of your zipper depending on your height. If you are on the shorter side, try to have it end at the middle of the zipper.
At Airthreads, we believe fit is highly personal. You should go with what you believe looks great on you and makes you feel most comfortable instead of conforming to any rigid rules.
