The Secret to a Bunch-Free Dress Shirt Is Tommy John’s Stay-Tucked Collection

In life, there are more than a few moments when it is best to look better than ‘casual.’ A little dressing up never hurt anyone and doing so can be as easy as throwing on a simple button down, putting on your nicest leather lace-ups, and slipping into a great fitting pair of slacks.

But, with most dress shirts, there comes one major annoyance that can ruin your time and your appearance: The bulging, rippling, blousy movement of your shirt that won’t stay tucked in. So, instead of just dealing by repeatedly tucking and smoothing your shirt, just try the Tommy John  Stay-Tucked collection. It’s here to get rid of your tucked-in irritations with literal bunch-less fits. A hidden elastic hem at the bottom of each Stay-Tucked shirt holds everything in place close to your hips, preventing your shirt from riding up or bunching – hence the Stay-Tucked name designation.

And, surprisingly, one little piece of elastic attached to the bottom hem of your shirt and suddenly you’ve got a perfectly in place button down. This design works especially well when you’re at a function that requires movement, such as appearing in your bud’s wedding, traveling for business, or even losing your cool during your favorite song while chaperoning your daughter’s middle school dance (no judgments here). 

What’s better, the Stay-Tucked Collection features two fits for dress shirts: The Slim Fit and the Classic Fit. Whatever fit you choose, the Tommy John Stay-Tucked collection shirts won’t come untucked when you raise your hands or simply go about your day due to the designs 360-degree armpit gusset that allows for full motion and no restrictions.

Stay-Tucked Slim Fit Dress Shirt – $148

Minimalists know the smartest way to travel is with the least gear possible. That often means finding clever products that do more than just one thing. Why carry a bulky jacket and a separate messenger bag, for example, when there are multi-pocket, MacGyver-worthy jackets available?
