Obsessing over your outfit items before going out, be it office or a date, might have its benefits, you definitely should try to nail your dress code items to the T, but remember that it's the little things that count, and sometimes it's worth spending just a little more time on styling the item than on deciding which one to put on.
Yes, we are talking about rolling your shirt sleeves.
There's a whole science to it.
Messily rolled shirt sleeves are a prime culprit. Not only do they make it look like you're about to do battle with a blocked toilet, but they'll also fail to hold their shape and repeatedly fall back down your forearms. Who wants that?
Not you. So read on.
Roll ONE. Marine Style.
- Start with your sleeves fully extended and cuffs unbuttoned. This is important.
- Bend the sleeve at the cuff, curl it upward and over itself until it's inside out.
- Straighten both the bottom and top of the rolled cuff, ensuring there are no creases.
- Repeat the process as necessary, gradually folding up to the desired height on your arm.
Roll TWO. Master Roll.
If you're shopping our shirts, or another quality manufacturer, you’ll notice that some shirts have a contrasting color detail or design pattern under the cuff, which is visible only when you use the master roll.
- Roll the sleeves up to about two widths of the cuff
- Roll the bottom once more – covering the cuff and leaving just the top of it exposed.
- If there is a contrasting color or design on the cuff – show just a hint of it.
- To undo the fold – hold the edge of the cuff and pull down.
