Hey gents —
A friend had asked me how to best roll up one’s sleeves, and I figured this might be a common question among men, so I thought I’d address it in a post. Frankly, there are many ways to do this, but haphazard solutions often fall short in terms of long-lasting positioning and minimal fret (read: least amount of times having to roll and re-roll them up.)
Surely there are several methods and it’s all a matter of preference, but I wanted to share one process that hasn’t failed me.
- Start with your sleeve unbuttoned at the cuff and the placket.
- Grab the cuff and while in the process of folding up once, pull up towards your shoulder. Stop when the seam where the cuff/sleeve meet lines up with the fold of your elbow.
- Take the material below that point, and fold up towards your shoulder.
- Straighten it all up. You’ve done this right if you have a snugly-fitting roll.
If you have other ways you like to roll up those sleeves, feel free to share them in the comments.
