    I had a Utilikilt a while back and, with the lower waistline and if your shirt has a relatively short tail, I think it would look good. Actually would be very appropriate for the utility kilt look.

    . . . with the lower waistline and if your shirt has a relatively short tail, I think it would look good.
    And that was basically my point—it seems the length of the shirt is the key element. Many polos and Ts are short enough to pull it off (no pun intended). Full length dress shirts untucked in a kilt would just look too sloppy for my taste. By the way, I'm with Tobus. My shirts are always tucked when kilted.

    On the way to my first job (fifty years ago) my dad stated, "You may have a common job, but you don't have to look like a common laborer. Tuck in your shirt tail." The US. Army confirmed that after I left home. It is a habit I live by and feel presentable to the public with, whatever I wear below my waist line.

    Note: I don't swim any more. I would be shirtless if I did.

    Tucked

    I almost never tuck a shirt in when I wear pants, unless it is a dressier shirt, slacks and tie. When I am in a kilt though, I always tuck my shirt in, utility kilt or otherwise. I just think it looks better. You get to show off your kilt belt and buckle, which I always wear with a kilt, and Spartan if you have one. For me, it just doesn't look good with an untucked shirt. I do think some people get way to hung up about what may be right or wrong with a kilt, after all, the whole idea of a kilt is freedom.

    I don't think it would matter for that kind of kilt, but for comfort and easy movement, untucked

    I only wear t-shirts with my utilikilt and I never tuck them in with it. Reason being that it sits at the same spot as my shorts and the shirts just pull out around the edges as I move and I hate the way that feels/looks. I do have a white linen button up that's flat across the bottom with no shirt tail and thought it looked stupid not tucked in but it's too short to tuck in so I don't wear it with the utilikilt. With a tartan kilt if I've skipped the kilt belt and sporran I also won't tuck a t-shirt in as the kilt will show too much unbroken up surface, as a regular kilt does sit higher if I'm wearing a belt which is more often then not I will tuck a t-shirt in as the kilt sits high enough that the shirt doesn't pull out.

    It is my understanding that it happens quite frequently, and may be so arranged with the kilt maker of your choice.

    I'm with Tobus. I always tuck in my shirt with a kilt. An untucked shirt hangs down and not only looks sloppy, but throws off the proportions of the whole outfit, much the same way wearing a normal suit jacket looks wrong with the kilt. The kilt's higher waist really calls for a tucked shirt (and a shorter jacket when you wear one).

    I do wear some shirt styles that are designed to be untucked with pants or shorts, such as Hawaiian shirts and bowling shirts. But I never wear these styles with a kilt. The two looks just don't go together, for the same reason I don't wear a kimono with combat boots or a t-shirt with a necktie.

    Showing off the kilt belt is another good reason to tuck. For the sort of tactical, outdoors, and working activities these kilts are designed to do, a loose shirt would seem to get in the way.

    I think the Utilikilt and its brethren can look very stylish. I even like the t-shirt, and boots look with them. But I would still tuck in the t-shirt.
