Do Polos Look Better Tucked Or Untucked?

Have you ever stood before the mirror, polo shirt in hand, wondering whether to tuck it in or leave it casually untucked? 

So do polos look better tucked or untucked? Whether Polos look better tucked or untucked largely depends on the occasion and the fit of the polo. Tucked polos offer a more formal, neat appearance suitable for business casual settings, while untucked polos provide a relaxed, casual look ideal for everyday wear.

In this blog you'll find whether you should keep your polo tucked in or out and the best fitting polo shirts right here at Tapered Menswear.

Should Polo Shirts Be Tucked or Untucked?

When attending events that require something a bit more formal, like a business meeting or an occasion labelled as 'smart casual', opting to tuck your polo shirt into your trousers might be a good idea, similar to when you might wear button-down shirts.

Just make sure that if you do go for the tucked in look its with some chinos or fitted trousers.

On the other hand, if the event is more relaxed, or for just everyday wear. Go for untucked.

Whichever your choice, the bottoms—play a big role. Pairing your polo with chinos or straight-leg jeans match the outfit perfectly.

Steering clear of tucking your polo into baggy jeans or joggers, as this will look mismatched.

Is It Okay To Wear A Polo Untucked?

Of course! In my opinion (more often than not) a polo shirt should be worn untucked. 

Not only does untucked look better but it prioritises comfort as well. Striking a balance between looking put-together and feeling at ease, an untucked polo is your ally for a variety of occasions.

How Long Should A Polo Shirt Be Untucked?

As a rule of thumb, the length of your untucked polo shirt should fall just below your waistband, allowing you to move freely without the risk of it riding up.

Also it shouldn't drape over the halfway point of your back pocket or trousers' zipper.

A well-fitted untucked polo creates a clean line and a well-proportioned silhouette. Choose a polo with an evenly cut hem; this design is specifically intended for the untucked look.

Can Polo Be Untucked For Business Casual?

In today's evolving work environments, office attire blurs the lines between formal and casual. Traditionally, a neatly tucked-in polo does convey a more professional demeanour, especially when you pair it with smart trousers.

Should your workplace have a somewhat relaxed dress code, an untucked polo could very well mesh with business casual dress code.

Just remember that the shirt's hem does not stray too far past the waistband. And pair it with smart trousers or chinos.

Is It Ok To Tuck A Polo Into Shorts?

Tucking a polo into shorts is perfectly acceptable and can even elevate the look. But the key here is to ensure the shorts are of a tailored fit and the polo is not overly baggy.

Chino shorts are often a good choice to pair with polos.

For a more relaxed vibe, leaving the polo untucked is also widely accepted. Again just make sure that the fit of both your polo and shorts aren't baggy and fit in the right areas.

Should You Tuck Polo Into Jeans?

Tucking a polo into jeans is generally less advisable, as it can disrupt the casual, effortless vibe that jeans typically have.

This combination might create an awkward contrast between the semi-formal polo and the inherently casual nature of jeans, leading to a mismatched appearance.

Jeans, with their rugged and relaxed essence, pair better with untucked polos. An untucked polo also helps creating a more flattering silhouette, avoiding the bunching and bulging that will happen if you tuck into jeans. 

Keep it untucked.
