You may not think that a shirt is an original gift for Father’s Day, but this one is a brilliant take on a classic shirt that every man would love in his closet. Want to take a fun little test? Look at the photo above and see if you can determine what is unique about the shirt (no peeking below!).
I was watching TV a few weeks ago and saw an ad for a new shirt business. Normally this is something that I would flip through, but the ad was captivating from the very beginning because I am a sucker for any stories about people launching their own original startup (which is usually followed by a disgusted “Why didn’t I think of that?”). For Father’s Day Gift Ideas this year, I am not going to suggest a list of items. Instead, I am pointing you to one place, UNTUCKit. The design of this men’s shirt is an original and very clever idea that I am so impressed with. It’s a button-down shirt that is worn untucked – and looks amazing! This shirt provides the best of both worlds, because men who wear this shirt are smack in the middle of dressy and casual. It’s is so chic.
Let’s talk about the design. It seems like such an obvious and simple design, but I can tell that a great deal of thought went into the final product. Not only does it has a curved hemline that tapers perfectly from the hips to the front, it is the perfect length. It has been designed to fall about halfway between the belt and the bottom of the zipper, showing a little bit of the pant pocket. It comes in several styles, including the option of a button-down collar (more on the dressy side), a slim fit (more on the Euro side), short sleeves (more on the casual side) and no-iron (ideal for long days).

Sizes range from small to XXX-Large and you can choose between regular and slim fit. New subscribers save %15 off your first order, shipping is free, but with Father’s Day 7 days away, I’d spend the extra $5.00 to make sure it arrives in time. Here is a roundup of my favorite UNTUCKit shirts – but there are so many more to choose from.
