Is it necessary to wear one's shirt outside one's pants?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Assalaamu 'alaykum wa rahmatu 'Llahi wa barakatuh
Regarding men wearing western style shirt and pants: Is it permissible for the male to wear his shirt tucked inside of his pants or should he allow the tail of the shirt to hang loosely on the outside covering the private parts ?

Praise be to Allaah.

If the trousers contain nothing haraam and are loose and do not reveal the shape of the private parts, there is nothing wrong with tucking the shirt into the pants, but if they are tight around the area of the private parts, it is necessary to cover that with the shirt or with something else.

And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
