It’s all about the tuck

Last winter saw a few brave male fashion pioneers trying out the tucked in boots look. This winter it’s all but essential.

But there are some definite rules to make it look effortless. If your pants are too wide you can end up with balloon pants that are more Ali Baba than louche hipster. Too skinny and you end up looking like an ’80s skinhead. A classic straight leg jean cut is the best option for median bagginess. There should also be element of insouciance: a bit of errant hem helps here, as does leaving the top few lace-holes undone for that Artful Dodger touch.

Jude Law is a surprise expert at the tucked in boot challenge so grab a copy of Hello and take note.
