The Simple Things - Tucking a shirt in

I know this seems a little bit silly for some, but it's not for others.
It's always good for a gentleman to look smart and sharp, so tucking your shirt in is an easy win.

It's not so much tucking a shirt in, it's keeping it tucked in, and there are some simple tricks to help you out.
I spent enough time, tucking my shirt in throughout the day but I've learnt a couple of things to keep it all in.

First of all, you need a shirt that fits. Properly. Not too big, not too small.
Personally, I always try to buy shirts that are 'tailor fit' otherwise 'slim fit' but it all depends on your size and build. As long as it fits, you're good to go!

I read on another blog, that there are only certain times to tuck in your shirt, which I definitely agree. Personally I think, that when wearing a jacket, tucking your shirt in is a must, whereas when simply wearing a shirt, it's not totally necessary.
Other bloggers also consider whether a shirt has a strait hem needs to be tucked in and shirts with a visible 'tails' need to be tucked in. But I think it's irrelevant.

The military use a word to describe the line that is your buttons down to your fly.
This is known as the 'gig line'. So when tucking your shirt, just make sure your 'gig line' is straight as well straight down the middle of your body.

If you're finding extra material around your waste, just simply pull it to your sides, and fold it in you're trousers. Simple!

If you're wearing an undershirt, a good way to keep your shirt tucked in, is to simply tuck your undershirt into your underwear, then tucking your shirt.
My last, simple trick to give you for keeping your shirt tucked in is.... (drum roll!)
Wear a belt... Keep it tight and it all stays in.

Have a gentlemanly day!
