Untucked Dress Shirt Styles
When it comes to style and wearing an untucked dress shirt, not just any shirt will do.
Dress shirts aren’t just for dress these days. The untucked dress shirt is casual yet stylish when you follow a few rules about hemlines, fit and custom details.
Keep the shirts with uneven hemlines—those with “tails,” in the closet!
Know how to layer!
When worn with a sport coat, it should hang about an inch shorter than the jacket so the shirt bottom can’t be seen. If layering with a V-neck sweater, wear the shirt about an inch longer than the sweater. That’s the rule if you want to be GQ material.
Fit, as with any dress shirt, is just as important.
The trick to wearing a dress shirt untucked is that it should be slightly more relaxed at the waist to “hang loose” in a manner that doesn’t appear sloppy.
Creating your own style is best achieved with custom-made dress shirts that you can design with your personal clothier.
Together you can choose fabric and design elements such as contrasting collar bands, plackets, cuffs—even buttons! Leave the top button or two undone to show them off!
