Four ways to tuck in your shirt

Whether you want to look smart, casual or smart casual, the way you wear your shirt can make all the difference. Some shirts have a formal look to be worn with a suit, while others have a more informal style and are intended to be worn in a more casual way.

If you are looking for a great range of shirts, whether formal or casual, you should choose good quality shirts that look great whichever way you choose to wear them; the better the quality, the better the shirt will look and feel. Choose shirts from quality names such as Calvin Klein menswear and you can be sure that you are buying a quality item.

Not only is there a great range of shirt styles but also there are different ways to wear them. Let’s take a look at four of these.

The full tuck

For a smart look for a formal occasion, go with the full tuck. This means tucking the shirt in all the way around. For any occasion when you need a smart suit and tie, there is no other way to wear your shirt – a smart suit needs the shirt to be fully tucked in.

The military tuck

The military tuck makes your full tuck look smarter. As some shirts can have a baggy look, the trick with the military tuck is to take the excess fabric at the sides, fold it into a pleat, and tuck the excess fabric in at the back.


The half-tuck is a more casual style. Tuck the shirt in at the front and leave the tails hanging out at the back. It is designed to look like you have been a little careless with the dressing; of course, the reality is that it is a calculated look designed to express your carefree attitude.

The underwear tuck

Wear a T-shirt under your shirt and tuck it into the top of your underwear, then put on the shirt to be tucked in. The undershirt causes friction, which helps the tucked-in shirt to stay in place.
