Should the shirt tuck into the trousers or hang loosely?

Our shirts and shirt blouses are designed to be tucked into trousers. The light viscose quality means that the shirt falls nicely compared to an ordinary stiff cotton shirt. But that doesn't mean you can't wear the shirt outside the pants.

When should the shirt be tucked into the pants?

Shirt in pants or not? Which is most correct? Are there rules in women's fashion? The answer is no! It is really up to you whether you want to wear the shirt in the pants or not. It all depends on what expression you want to create.

When can the shirt hang loosely on the outside of the trousers?

Many see it as more relaxed to wear the shirt outside the trousers and think that it gives a more professional look if the shirt is tucked into the trousers instead. But if you style the shirt with a pair of nice men's trousers and a jacket, you can easily achieve a professional office look.

Which shirts should you tuck into your pants?

There are definitely some shirt/blouse qualities that are better suited to getting down into the trousers than others. For us, it is important that the quality has a nice drop, so that you don't become completely square at the top. That is why we have chosen to make our shirts from viscose, so that the fabric follows the body in contrast to cotton, which will typically stick out more from the body.

The method: How do you best tuck the shirt down into the trousers?

  • Tuck the shirt into the trousers
  • Make sure the fabric is evenly distributed and that the buttons are centered
  • Raise your arms, that way the extra fabric comes up, so you have good freedom of movement during the day
  • Arrange the extra fabric neatly so that it forms a straight fold over the pant hem

How do you keep the shirt tucked into the pants?

It actually depends on your pants. If they are too loose, the shirt will climb out of the trousers. If, on the other hand, they fit, the shirt stays down in the trousers. If your pants are loose you can use a belt to help keep it all in place during the day.

Shirts with extra length

In order to get the right expression when you take the shirt down into the trousers, it is important that the shirt has the right length, otherwise it will jump up from the trousers again. That is why we have made sure that all our shirts and shirt blouses have extra length so that they stay down in the trousers.
