The Express Guide to Tucking Shirts and Rolling Sleeves

By Megan Gustashaw

Think about every person whose style you’ve admired: the movie stars, the musicians, the random folks you’ve seen on the street. What do they all have in common? Clothes that fit. You can wear nothing but white T-shirts, or black suits, or gray sweats and if your clothes fit well, you’ll be acing the style game. After that, it all comes down to details, the precision of your tie knot, the way your no-show socks actually don’t show, that kind of thing.

To that end, today we’re reviewing the basics of one of the trickiest things to get right in the fit department—the button-down shirt—and how to tuck and cuff the sleeves the right way so you really knock it out of the park. Read, digest, and implement these moves and before you know it, you’ll be the stranger on the street whose style everyone is secretly admiring.
