On The Street.....American Classic, NYC

I'm always inspired (read - jealous) of how Michael Bastian can do that front-tuck without his shirts or sweaters getting too bloused out or it looking too studied. I've watched him do it and it takes him ,like, one second and it is always perfect.
I do take solace in my superior tie knots, though.

You're right...the ability to tuck in one's sweater without looking like a dork is very special. Nice, classic look.

haha um isn't that a lacoste belt? (lacoste = french)

I wish I had within myself enough poise and grace to exact the elegance and ease of this look, perhaps if I were would work out better for me.

This kindof look becomes effortless when you are in decent shape, that means no gut at all.

Chic, chic, chic!
I love his style: clean, classic and sexy.
Can't wait for his collection to hit Bergdorf's!

I want to achieve this casually awesome look with minimal efforts, but sadly even a moumental effort on my part will fail.

Not only does he pull it off, he also has a t-shirt underneath, so this is three layers in the tuck.

It helps to have a very flat stomach, a 31" waistline, and a sweater that has a great fit, possibly bespoke, which is not too difficult to accomplish when you are in the biz?

Isn't it also known as the 'frat tuck'?

Ah, well everyone has a signature talent. I certainly cannot pull off a nice tie knot (even femmes had to wear them at school in Australia).

One of my favourite photos.

I think the key is a thin and shortish sweater. Smoking to diminish appetite to stay thin is also probably another factor. Any way Ol' Boy is Too Cool for School.

I am by no means a fashion expert but I have to get that perfect tuck as well, but I can't quite get like some guys (i.e. Mr "American Classic"). I have come to the following conclusions

1. it has to do with the cut of the shirt from the armpit to the bottom of the shirt

2. The degree of V in your frame. Mr. American Classic has somewhat of a (for lack of a better term) "sausage frame" where his distance parallel from his shoulder line to his waist line in minimal and close to being perfectly parallel (confused yet?). Myself, I have an extreme V frame and have learned to live with fact that the shirt will always lose the perfect tuck, the moment I raise my arms.

or maybe I just have learned the perfect tuck yet :-)

Wow! The perfect unstudied but just-right tuck is soooo hard to achieve! Kudos! He looks AH-mazing!
