And There’s a Perfectly Good Reason for It

There’s a relatively new company around called “UNTUCKit” that makes the advertising pitch that men’s button-front shirts don’t look right when men try to wear them not tucked into their pants.  Sometimes they’re too long; sometimes they’re too short; and sometimes they’re just not shaped correctly.

But UNTUCKit shirts supposedly are designed to eliminate that problem:  they’re not too long, they’re not too short, and they’re shaped juuuuuuuuuuust right, the company claims.

Well, allow The Curmudgeon to offer another perspective.

Men’s button-front shirts don’t look right when they’re not tucked in – they’re too long, they’re too short, or they’re not shaped right – because…

…CIVILIZED MEN TUCK IN THEIR DAMN SHIRTS!  THEY DON’T GO AROUND LOOKING LIKE SLOBS WITH THEIR SHIRT-TAILS HANGING OUT!

    YES! It had to be said! Thanks for stepping up!

    Something that has been bothering me (not that you asked):
    There is an app out there touting that they offer the news fairly from ALL sides. Isn’t there really only one side? I think it’s called “the truth.”

    “Ah, I’m sick and tired of hearing things from uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocrites.
    All I want is the truth now. Just gimme some truth now” – John Lennon – 1971

    Happy New Year friend.

      Well, notwithstanding Rudy Giuliani’s insistence that there is no truth, the problem, at least as I see it, is when people presenting news veer off into sharing their views. One minute, for example, they’re telling us that the stock market is down, which is a factual assertion, but the next minute they’re trying to explain why it’s down and that’s opinion that’s often grounded in ideology. Maybe the app of which you write is going to offer multiple views on why that theoretical market is down- but then, that’s not really news, is it?
