It’s currently snowing right now and boots are everywhere. There aren’t many things worse than snow in the city (other than homeless guys shitting on the train, daily murders, and rats the size as small children). It turns into slush the second it hits the ground and you’re left walking through what looks like a thrown up grape slush puppy.
Well, you’ve got to handle traveling through this shit. So you toss your boots on and you’re left with the dilemma of: do you or do you not tuck your pants into your boots? Now I’m all for tucking your pants into your boots if you’ll be commuting to wherever and need to bare the elements. No one wants their pants soaking wet at the bottom and plastered with slush. It’s a fucking nightmare the rest of the day. Pants tucked in while commuting: a-ok.
Before I address this next part, this disclaimer needs to be said: women tucking their pants into their boots is 100% acceptable. It’s fucking weird if you don’t.
Now, if a guy is tucking his pants into his boots at any other time than when walking through snow, he is an absolute maniac. Even if you forget to untuck them when you get into the office I assume you’re insane. If you tuck your pants into your boots for shits and giggles, you’re probably already wearing pants that are painted on and go to Starbuck’s daily. Never ok.
TL;DR summary: pants tucked in while walking in the snow and women tucking: perfectly fine. Pants tucked in any other time: never ok.
So is it ok? I guess sometimes but for the majority of the year, your pants should grace the back of your heels without being shoved into a boot.
