How to tuck in your shirt the right way.
00:08
One, start with the right shirt.
00:10
Signs of a too big shirt,
00:12
it pulls out the sides of your pants when you tuck it in,
00:15
like an upside down chef's hat.
00:16
It's too large.
00:17
The button on your sternum looks like it's about to pop.
00:19
It's too small.
00:21
The hem doesn't go down to your butt
00:22
that's what make sure that when you tuck it
00:24
it'll stay tucked.
00:26
Two, stuff your shirttails into your pants.
00:31
Attaboy.
00:34
Three, use the extra button on the side of your trousers
00:37
to keep your shirt in place.
00:39
With the button closed you will be able to
00:41
tuck your shirt as far down as it goes.
00:44
Reach through the fly to maximize tuckage.
00:49
Perfecto.
00:52
Four, make that slightly too baggy shirt a little more slim.
00:57
You should look sharp, not like the sail on a boat.
01:00
Here's how you do it.
01:01
Pinch the side of the fabric at your side seams,
01:03
pull them out and fold them back
01:04
onto the rest of your shirt.
01:07
Looking good.
