There’s a craft to rolling your sleeves. And I’m not talking about the dreaded flying-nun fold – an unbuttoned cuff that wings out when rolled up just once. I’m talking about a clean roll to the elbow. Here’s how to achieve it in three simple steps.
- With buttons undone, flip back the cuff and get ready to roll.
- Fold your entire lower sleeve up so the bottom seam of the cuff rests just above the elbow.
- Roll the leftover fabric (from below the cuff) up and over. Tuck it all the way around for a uniform fold, leaving a quarter inch of cuff exposed for contrast.
And voilà, you’re ready to take on the day in laid-back – yet still polished – style.
