Oxford shirts + Chino pants tuck in or don't tuck in
I'm entering in my first year of college. I've worked in sales during my gap year so my wardrobe changed from a fratty style to a few nice Oxford button downs and Dockers (other than that I own workout clothes for the gym) during my gap year.

Im comfortable wearing my button downs tucked in but do you think this might come across as nerdy/ try hard? My shirts are a little long so they can be worn untucked but if I tuck them in you can see my vtaper better.

I'm thinking if I undo a couple buttons and roll up the sleeves it'll look more casual and more cocaine dealer than try hard....I've had girls refer to me as the guy who always shows up in a "suit" to party's and guys make jokes about "being on the phone with pablo escabar" so I guess that's not a bad thing. Other than the Oxford s I'll probably wear a wife beater with the slacks and dress shoes

Not if they're tailored and tight fitting around the waist.

I always tuck my shirt. I don't care if it looks nerdy, I like it like that so that's how I wear it. Fuck what others might think about it.

But if you feel uncomfortable with them tucked just untuck them.

If I looked out my showroom window and saw a fully-nude woman force-fucking an alligator with a strap-on while snorting xanex on the roof of her rental car with her three children locked inside with the windows rolled up, I wouldn't be entirely amazed.

RE: Oxford shirts + Chino pants tuck in or don't tuck in
Depends on what kind of school you go to.

I used to rock the chinos plus an oxford with sperries all the time back in school, but I was joking labeled a Chad by my buddies. Generally speaking, you'll look more put together than the majority of your compatriots with an untucked oxford, because the majority of college bros are slobs.

As far as rolling up your sleeves? I do it all the time. If your forearms are in good shape, it's a really good way to subtly show off your figure and the watch I'm going to assume you're wearing.

Good luck at school, it definitely sounds like you're going to stick out in a good way.

Classic OCBD (ideally slim fit) should be tucked in. Roll up sleeves and open two buttons for a more casual look.

More casual fit shirts in Chambray, Selvedge, or linen should be untucked.
