Should you roll up flannel sleeves?
If you’re like us then you probably roll the cuff of your sleeve up once and continue to make folds up the length of your arm until you reach the desired sleeve length, but this technique works completely differently. This strategy also leaves some of the cuff exposed for a casual look.
Is rolling up your sleeves unprofessional?
Rolling one’s sleeves is not just a sign of work activity; it may be an on-purpose style statement. Some men roll their sleeves to protect good clothing from damage (especially when doing dirty work). Some do it to be cooler in warm weather. Rolled-up sleeves, on the other hand, can work either with or without a tie.
Why are rolled up sleeves attractive?
Roll your shirtsleeves When you’re not wearing a jacket or an additional layer, rolling your shirt sleeves is the breeziest way to look like you were professionally styled – and this applies to long, short, and even the occasional t-shirt sleeve.
How far should you roll your sleeves up?
Fold the sleeve up, so the entire cuff is an inch or so above your elbow. Next, roll your sleeves up onto the cuff, using your thumb to sort of tuck in the shirt into the roll, but still allow a little bit of the cuff to be exposed at the top. The top of the roll should hit just below the elbow, by about half an inch.
Fold the shirt halfway up your arm, so that the cuff lies across the elbow. Roll the bottom sleeve up the arm once, so it covers cuff’s seam. Roll the bottom of the sleeve up the arm one more time, starting from the bottom inside corner and tug the upper, outside fold so it sticks out.
Start with both cuff buttons unbuttoned. Fold the sleeve up, from an inch or more above your elbow. Flip the sleeve upward, just below the end off the cuff. About one-third of the cuff should be visible.
