UNTUCKit shirts offer a great fit

Every guys needs great dress shirts, and now we like them to look good when they’re untucked as well as the untucked shirt with jeans is still popular. Both the tucked and untucked look works these days, and you can make the call depending on the setting, but it’s nice to have shirts that look good both ways.

With that in mind we checked out the dress shirts from UNTUCKit, a first-of-its-kind company that specifically designs button down shirts to be worn untucked. These shirts were created from the bottom up and follow a specific measurement guide that you can see below to guarantee a perfect fit for every man so that you’ll look polished with minimal effort. We tried the style pictured here (Casablanca Valley) using the size chart and were very happy with the shirt. It felt great and fit perfectly and it looked like it was specially made to stay untucked. Yet we also wore in tucked in with a black suit and it looked great that way as well.

The shirts come in a wide variety of colors and styles as you can see on the website, from casual plaids to dressier solids, and they are 100% cotton shirts.

For the guys, you should definitely try these for yourself. For anyone shopping for guys, use the measurement guide and buy some as a gift. For more gift ideas check out our Holiday Gift Guide.

Stylish golf shirts from Sub70

Fashion trends for men have evolved in recent years as a slimmer, more athletic fit has become the standard in everything from suits to t-shirts. This more stylish look has also had an impact on the usually stodgy golf world, as younger golfers have made their mark on the tour.

Sub70 sent us some samples from their golf line which embraces these new style trends as the “classic golf shirt goes modern.” Check out their site and you’ll see a wide variety of European-fit polos in a full range of styles and colors. We checked out the Zane/White golf shirt pictured here and loved the styling. Some of the shirts are trendier than others but the modern styles definitely stand out as something new and fresh. The all-polyester shirts are very comfortable, but they are definitely tighter and the sizes run smaller than expected. They are ideal for a leaner and more athletic build, so it’s not for guys who consistently choose beer and the buffet line over the gym.

The shirts make a great gift for golf enthusiasts who have a sense of style. If you’re an avid golfer and want to break free from the more traditional look, these shirts are for you as well.

  

Badass t-shirts and gear from Ranger Up

If you’re looking for gear with some attitude you’ll love the t-shirts and other products from Ranger Up. Ranger Up is a military and patriotic apparel company run by veterans with attitude and swagger. They sent us some t-shirts to try out and we loved them. The quality is excellent as the pre-washed and shrunk t-shirts are soft and form-fitting. The shirts also tagless for better comfort. The screen printing quality is also excellent and there are tons of cool shirts to choose from.

Regardless of your political leanings you can find stuff you’ll like, but the in-your-face attitude is reflected all of the phrases and designs. You’ll also find MMA gear as the entire line is consistent with that style. Browse though the selections and you’ll get a feel for the aggressive styling. The shirts will also motivate you to hit the gym as they will show off your assets and also expose any flab in the midsection.

Try out one t-shirt and you’ll likely come back for more. Also, the Ranger Up gear can make a great gift this holiday season for men and women.
