VERSATILITY


I found and bought this shirt as I was browsing through Jackthreads and loved the color and pattern. I’m still a little weary of buying clothes from online but I figured “What the heck”.

When I got it I loved it! Except one thing… It was a little too long.

What I’ve personally found is that if your shirt goes past your crotch or covers your crotch area then in my opinion it doesn’t work untucked. As you can see on the photo above my top half of my body looks longer then my bottom half because of the length of the t-shirt. I personally think people look a little better when there is a clear and even length between whats above your waist to whats below your waist. So when I look for a shirt to wear untucked I always try and get one that goes near or a little above my waistline.  (Also a good indicator too if you find a shirt that is really long its usually a dress shirt that you tuck in)

So typically what you would do is tuck it in!

But what if you wanted to look a little less formal? The above look is great but sometimes I feel a little out of place when I’m the only one having my shirt tucked in in places that are little more casual. Also this tucked in look makes me look a little more “mature” and “serious”.

What I’ve found is if you have a shirt thats a little long then just wearing your favorite t-shirt underneath and then unbuttoning it. What I’ve found is that the t-shirt I wear clearly evens out my top and bottom half of my body (meaning the t-shirt goes above or near my waistline). So even if the t-shirt is a little long it acts pretty much like a cardigan.

Now I feel more comfortable wearing this shirt without having to tuck it in. It also gives me more options to pair it with other t-shirts and brings versatility to this one little piece of clothing

Shirt: Hide and Seek Clothing Medium (http://www.hideandseekclothing.com/)

Collared Shirt: Matix Medium (bought off of Jackthreads.com)

Jeans: Volcom 2X4 (32×32)

Shoes: Converse All Stars
