Do you feel comfortable with your shirt tucked into your pants?

    I never do that, tuck my shirt into my pants, it makes me feel nervous. That was before. Then I moved to Australia, then I found a job which requires me to wear shirt, tie and pants from Mon to Fri.

    I didn't have a choice. It pretty much drove me nuts. I feel like my ass exposed to everyone if I do that.

    I feel nervous cause the material of those pants is usually very thin, not like those jeans which I used to wear, and usually I don't tuck my t-shirt into my jeans.

    So I iron my pants and wear different pants everyday. Make sure the ass part of my pants is perfect.

    I also feel nervous if I go to work without taking a shower.
    I can't use the urinal if there is somebody else around.

    Have any of you experienced the same problems? I know this sounds weird.... icon_eek.gif

    PS: Thanks guys, now I learned how to spell PANTS. icon_lol.gif

    Been there, did something about it.
    Takes a shitload of patience, though.

    It's more restricting to wear your shirt tucked in, I think. It does give you a more professional look though. Many jobs require it. Nothing to be nervous about though. It's easy for me to do, but after a while, it does get rather old lol.

    It's called getting older. We all hit this point when we have to dress the way a company expects us to.

    Don't worry - you'll get used to it and then it will be like second nature. I am tucked at work - dress shirt and tie. Outside of work, it depends what I wear but very often untucked. I admit it can be more comfortable.

    Depends on the situation really. I mostly use stalls- unless they are all taken... I just don't understand why men feel the urge to urinate all over the toilet seat. icon_eek.gif

    Nope! Growing I couldn't stand to have my shirt untucked. I just couldn't stand it. But then over a couple of years I discovered the joy of the untucked shirt and I've never looked back. Except when I have to like with work.

    I don't have the same problems now but I think, tucked or untucked, it's just something you have to get used to.

    I had an irrational fear of public bathrooms when I was younger (K-12 I used the school's bathroom like..twice. Both were severe emergencies. Hell I can think of a third severe emergency I miraculously forced in until I got home). Mine wasn't a self-esteem issue but severe social anxiety. I had to fight my mom for years and years and YEARS to stay unmedicated for it. I somehow managed to overcome about 80-90% of it, but in hindsight I probably should have gotten on Celexa or Paxil and enjoyed some of my teen years instead of loathing my life for over a decade.

    A dress shirt that is not cut straight across the bottom does not look professional when not tucked in. When I model I am always required to tuck my shirt in and wear a belt, unless it is a t-shirt, muscle shirt, or tank top, which is not business wear, but casual. But polo shirts, which are cut straight across the bottom, are permissible to wear not tucked in.

    I don't like shirt's tucked in either because it is not comfortable, but it is necessary for a proper business professional look. I don't like wearing any shirt and wherever I can, it comes off as soon as possible. The least amount of clothes necessary is the most comfortable and a birthday suit is the most comfortable attire. Man was not designed to wear any clothes. icon_smile.gif

    I feel comfortable with my shirt tucked into my pants. I've always had to do that though. In middle and high school, I was required to have my shirt tucked in - you know your typical conservative, 'that's the way it is' teachers, sadly. Back then, I hated having it tucked in, however now I don't really care. My jobs have required me to have it tucked in... and untucked shirts with a suit and tie look ridiculous.

    Outside temperature dictates how we must dress for work. Shorts and a muscle shirt (that is cut low and loose in the armpit area) or tank top is what most men wear at work now under some extremely hot and humid conditions inside package trailers. When I worked in the summer for a tent and expo company in the hot sun all day, the most common attire was only gym shorts, athletic shoes and lots of sunscreen. However, when washing tents, no shoes or socks were allowed on the tents---bare feet only. Anyone caught walking on tents with shoes on was fired. It was very hard to work surrounded by hot shirtless barefoot men all day without getting a boner. icon_smile.gif A lot of water fights cooled everyone off.

    TheGuyNextDoor saidSome clothes just look better tucked in.. I was at a dinner recently where 99% of the male guests were in suits or sport coats due to the nature/level of the dinner.. One of the guests, about 55 or so,, good looking man too decided he'd look cool like Jimmy Buffet on the beach to wear khakis and an untucked camp shirt.. he was all happy go lucky and probably the most comfortable one there,, but to be honest.. it looked pretty stupid. People usually have to dress to suit their environment where the word work is concerned. Besides.. I love looking at men's asses, when they wear a tie and dress shirt. You don't have to be perfect of have the very best ass in the office to look good. Find yourself some quality dress shirts that fit your body well and some great ties and shoes,, then the pants will be the least of your worries.
    You're right about the shower before work.. you'll always feel and look better freshly shit, showered and shaved before work.
    As for the urinal.. if you are Pee shy, many gay men are.. take no shame in using the stall. Most men, gay and straight, prefer privacy when taking a piss.


    At my work it really doesn't pay for anybody to shower before work because 10 minutes after we start, everyone is dripping with sweat. It is an intense 4 hour workout with just a 10 minute break. We are provided with lots of ice water to keep us hydrated and many bring their own protein bars and fitness drinks for energy. We are all led in stretching exercises before we start. Everyone showers after work. There are locker rooms and showers at work, if you want to shower there.

    Uh, yeah he was. Modern man doesn't have the thicker body pelt of previous hominoids, and necessitates clothing to properly exist in the weather conditions of our modern climate.

    Young guys seem to be more pee shy and even shirtless shy today. But older guys my age here are usually not pee shy because we grew up in high school showering naked together in community shower rooms after phy ed class or sports practice and so we all got use to having our peers seeing us totally naked. It was required to shower after phy ed and community showers were the only thing available so you had no choice but to shower naked in front of your peers. Many of our older school buildings today still have the community showers, but many kids today refuse to use them and teachers and students are complaining of kids coming to class all sweaty and stinky. The schools do not have the funds to remodel the shower facilities, so everyone just has to put up with the body odor I guess, if kids refuse to shower.

    gotta have the belt, otherwise it's a no go. I don't know many people who tuck their shirt in without a belt, but i imagine it's awkward.

    No, he wasn't. Not before our modern climate and when he felt no shame naked.
