Tucker's Tales

Nature has millions of unexplained occurrences, but there is one that is unarguably the most troubling. I'm talking about the inexplicable 'pants tuck in'. In 99% of men, there is a certain age where they will suddenly decide that the days of not tucking their shirt into their pants are over. One day, the shirt is untucked, free-flowing, care-free, happy-go-lucky. The next moment, BAM, without anyone noticing the transition, his shirt is tucked into his pants. Or maybe he does it ever so slightly, 5mm tucked in over the course of year for a seamless (no pun) transition. But it happens! Take a look around. There's a certain age where you no longer see guys with their shirt untucked. And what's worse, as this graph shows, the pants just get higher with age:

A specific belt of high-pants results start to fly up around age 25.

I've decided to get to the bottom of this mystery is to speed up the whole process and watch how pants change over time. If this guy, let's call him Tucker Klaüsttøøp, were you friend, you would not notice the change in his pants. You might even say "why, that Tucker Klaüsttøøp is one hell of a non-pants tucker", but then look at him properly for the first time in years and see his pants up to his neck. But let's have a look at Tucker's appearance over 20 years:

AHA! A definte hint of change.

Ok, we've identified the problem. So what's the resolution? The total worldwide abolition of pants? Education? Or maybe it is up to each of us to make a difference, the power is yours!

what about when young men wear their pants around their knees? isn't that pretty ridiculous?
