It may come as a surprise to some, but many men consider fashion to be a significant aspect of their daily lives. As men reach an age for employment and begin to look for jobs, their appearance becomes increasingly important; that’s why countless male young adults are ditching their sweatshirts and graphic tees to invest in pea coats and button-downs.
Though men certainly enjoy dressing up from time to time, there is nothing like comfortably casual outfits such as the classic jeans and a button-down. Which brings about a familiar dilemma: Tuck it or untuck it?
On this episode of Life & Living with Joanna Gagis, Gagis sits down with New Jerseyan Chris Riccobono to talk about his company, UNTUCKit, a line of gentleman’s button-down shirts designed to be worn untucked while still looking professional.
Riccobono’s brand was born in Hoboken, as he and his friends tried to find a way to untuck their button-downs without looking “sloppy.”
“For years – outside of college when you start to be concerned about how you look and dress – every shirt was too long for me,” says Riccobono.
He explains that UNTUCKit was created to provide men a fashionable, professional and casual style clothing line. Within a year’s time, it successfully entered a highly competitive market. Today, it accommodates countless men of all ages, from grad students to men in their 90s.
