The lights are on
What began as a joke on Tim Schafer's blog about Nathan's Drake's half-tuck in Uncharted, has now become a full blown fashion statement, apparently.
Sony sent us a press release, a poster, a DVD, and a t-shirt offering instructions on how to use the half-tuck correctly. I knew the fashion world recognized the half-tuck, but I didn't realize it had reached this level of importance. They have a truck and everything.
"Nathan Drake has the 'half-tuck' as his signature style," said stylist and America's Next Top Model personality Jay Manuel, "Drake's look is very appealing and most guys will naturally adopt his ease of style. Both women and men can absolutely rock the half-tuck." And I'm pretty sure Manuel said that without the slightest hint of irony.
What lazy, half-finished video game inspired dressing trend will become popular next? I've got my money on one untied shoe.

Second only to the "brony" phenomenon.
"Haha, young guys who watch a girly cartoon! How unexpected and funny in an ironic way! Young men, what can ya do, you know? Those crazy rascals! Haha!"
"fashion" nowa days is REALLY gay but this may resurrect it ... unless you see some Jonas brother look a like running around with it
I don't really like the half tuck, but nathan drake pulls it off.
Can you imagine if they did a skyrim trend?
This just makes my brain hurt...
I was already doing the half-tuck when I was like 8 after watching Captain Planet (the fire guy had a half-tuck).
But please don't over do it. Uncharted needs to stay a game. Uncharted is not KISS :P
Definitly doing the half tuck from now on
A few weeks ago, Olympic diver Greg Louganis came to talk at my school. He was rockin the half tuck.
As others have said, the half-tuck has been common before Nathan Drake came along. I guess he just made it more noticeable.
I used to half tuck when I wore medium shirts in high school
Every day that passes, I lose a little more hope in humanity.
Have they no shame?
It looks so stupid, and very lazy.
Maybe with a tee shirt but with a button down that's just stupid.
the half tuck or as I like to call it "I got caught with my pants down" look has been around for years and years, ask any old divorcee or guys at the unemployment office who learned how to make good use of the company network
Well this is sort of weird. Now that it's got all this attention, I don't really see what the big deal is about. It's just a slightly ruffled shirt. The tuck shirt, I assume, is a joke. I suppose it'd be sort of humorous if it was tucked, but still had the words showing.
Drake's costume... nice!
This is the most stupid *** I've ever seen and then when I heard Kardashian......I still can't find my revolver
