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.

            8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

            8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

            We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

            On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

            Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

            1. Smart Door Locks

            A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

            2. Smart Kitchen Tools

            Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

            3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

            If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

            4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

            These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

            5. Nest Thermostat

            This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

            6. Smart Lighting

            Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

            7. Google Chromecast Ultra

            Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

            8. Canary

            This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
