what is a half tuck?

A half tuck is a way of tucking in your shirt so that it is only partially tucked in, exposing the bottom half of your shirt. This can be a great way to show off a cool pattern or design on your shirt, or to make sure that your shirt doesn’t bunch up when you’re sitting down.

Some people only half tuck the front, leaving the back of the shirt fully exposed and some people fully tuck in the back and then half tuck the front.
