The Art of Tucking in Shirts every Gentleman Needs to Practice

The Art of Tucking in Shirts every Gentleman Needs to Practice

Is there a need to teach men something they have been doing since they were 4?

Well, actually yes. Just observe the ones around you. How many of them do you see sporting an unkempt-looking and billowy shirt? Or how many times have you noticed a guy delivering a talk who has been unconsciously re-tucking his shirt around four times while having a less than 7-minute presentation? (Heck, that’s a lot!)

Based on those examples, I surmise, most men have no system for tucking in shirts. Perhaps even you! Let’s find a solution for this predicament.

This article’s goal is to show you some tactics that can help eliminate the nuisance of an un-tucked or wrongly tucked shirt.

What to tuck and what not to tuck

    After tucking in your shirt, you should have a clean gig line—an imaginary straight line running in front of your body–starting from the middle portion of your chin down to your crotch.

    A properly-tucked shirt will sit with the shirt placket (that’s the rectangle of fabric where the front buttons are situated) perfectly lines up with the fly of your pants. The belt buckle and your pants button should be centered and aligned tidily.

            10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

            Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

            It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically, I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
