When it comes to rolling your sleeves, there are no official rules. Of course, we've heard some conservative sartorial types argue that your sleeves shouldn't be rolled unless you're waiting tables or delivering a baby. But we're not those men. In fact, we think there's sort of a disheveled elegance to an artfully-rolled sleeve that gives your look some laid-back personality. Herewith, three ways to roll with it.
Easy to master, this intuitive roll is best for especially hot days or performing physical labor, when you want to shorten sleeves above your elbow.
Fold your cuff back at the seam, laying it flat all the way around your sleeve.
Continue to roll back evenly, using the cuff's width as a template, until you reach the desired length.
Still a pretty simple roll, the slimmer cuff looks good on guys with thin arms and is ideal when you you're layering a shirt under a sweater.
Fold your cuff back at the seam, then fold the new double layered cuff in half.
Roll that band of fabric once or twice more, stopping just before the elbow.
This right-out-of-a-catalog style looks as if you just pushed up your sleeves and they artistically stayed in place.
Fold the cuff back and pull up past your elbow, thus pulling your sleeve inside out.
Roll inverted sleeve into an even fold, allowing the sleeve's cuff to peek out. Scrunch and fold edge back over the roll.
