Why are teenagers today so against looking smart?

I don't understand! At my school we have a uniform and for one of the first time this year I took my jumper off. My shirt is a bit too long so obviously I tuck it in. But when I did people were acting like I had committed murder or something
"Why the **** have you got your shirt tucked in...you look like a ******" and many more comments like this were made.

This is when I realised that I almost never see teenagers in my area smartly dressed. No one ever tucks their shirt in, or has properly ironed trousers or anything. I don't expect them to be wearing suits all the time but why so untidy and negative to the tidy people?

They don't shout at teachers for being smartly dressed, so why their fellow peers

Because it's cool and against the system like.

I never really used to tuck in my shirt, but that was because it made me look fat if I did

Nerd.

Also, TS, how does it feel to be superior over everyone and get no pussy?

Does that answer your question?

No, because that's not well dressed.

I have to tuck in my shirt at work. But I look messed up. Skinny jeans and a poofy green button up shirt does not go well together.

But in high school we had a uniform but I wore the polo shirt, so no need to tuck it in and you still looked like a tool anyway.

because tucking in your shirt is for fags...

I don't get it either, I do understand the top button being undone, we got told off by out teachrs for it but we could barley breath it done up so naturally we ignored that one. We also had blazers which we had to wear every day (if it was hot we had to wait for the head teacher to send a message around school that we were allowed to take it off) the blazer were the worst thing they came up with.

I've wanted everyone to dress like the 1920s again since I was 12, nothing suaver than a suit, waistcoat and pocketwatch.

Cause punk is still alive, man.

But seriously, I hate tucking in my shirt if it's a polo or something. I love wearing tuxedos though. (if you've ever seen my profile picture, you can tell).

My point was that people associate tucked in shirts with "nerds".

EDIT: To the post above, that kind of style is cool, but it doesn't really work for young kids. Then again I don't know what ages we're talking here.

Oh god, blazers are horrible.
Yes they're useful, but you should be allowed to choose whether you carry it or wear it. In the summer at my school we get detention if we're walking around the corridors with our blazers off.

Tucking your shirt in is the final stage of becoming a man. I did it a few months ago. I felt sexy.

It doesn't work when you're fat

Just in the past few months I've made the transition from just band t-shirt and shoddy looking jeans to nice button up shirts and better looking jeans, makes me look older. I like it.

Then don't tuck your shirt in. Just roll it up so it looks like tucked in. Problem solved.

Don't know about you people, but I wore a ****ing suit. Why? Because Professionalism>Sweatpants/Pajamapants.

You wore a suit at school?

I mean I wore a blazer and a haphazardly put on tie but a suit.. dude.

+1. Any time I wear a suit, it's the full suit, waistcoat and pocketwatch combo.

I also think that mutton chops should make a comeback. My sideburns are pretty good, but I want them bushier!

You should wear a suit on your UG inquisitions!

I can't, my friend. With my hair long now, it doesn't look right, back in the day, I had the Albert Wesker haircut and the suit, very professional.

Pretty much this. Therefore you do look out of place in high school with it like that. Younger teens are scruffy, that's just it. I used to get in trouble at school every day for not tucking my shirt in, but these days (if the occasion is smart enough to warrant a shirt) I quite like it.

Well I think it could be because, **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME **** YOU, I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME

Because dressing up is stupid and there are better ways to look =/. There's no such thing as "well dressed".


Yes there is. Grey suit, waistcoat, poketwatch. Sideburns recommended.

Its probably because most people tend to dress more comfortably and with less fuss. Personally I wear shirts a lot and occasionly a waist coat but I don't tuck my shirt in because it just gets a nuisance having to sort it out so it doesn't look wrinkly after going to the toilet and such. Tucking it in also makes more creases than just letting it hang when I do it. Smart, casual and comfortable is the way to go.

^ Well yeah. Hence the smiley.

I think I'm a man of extremes. It's either jeans and a nerdy tshirt, or full on Victorian gentleman.

It has been a year since I wore a shirt and tie because I have finished high school but in a couple of weeks my mum is getting married and I have to wear a suit, it is going to be beautiful, top buttons done up, blazers, ties, nice shoes the full works and I can't wait, I do wish I had a waist coat for the evening though........and a hat......maybe i play LA Noire too much or maybe it just looks damn good
