I like to use the "master roll" when rolling up my sleeves:

No tie + these trousers makes this casual enough for this thread, I would think:

Somehow I prefer the basic roll to all alternatives when it comes to rolled up shirt sleeves.
A rolled sleeve should have an air of casual nonchalance imo, a thing that is undone by any sign of thought or effort having been put into the rolling up.

while i agree, and my roll is pretty basic, i dont think it should be sloppy either. i think that is often worse than contrived.

thanks for all the "thumbs," guys!

I tend to do the "master" roll. You can make it as nonchalant looking as you want, like (for eg.) letting the corner of the cuff stick out a bit further rather than having it perfectly aligned with the rolled-up portion. And I prefer it because the basic roll tends to get too tight around my arms.

Too much thought to the roll already.

+1 Unless it drastically changes things aesthetically, who really gives a fuck?!

Yes, just roll

NOBD, nothing you say counts because it's on a whole different unreachable level to me.

For me the master roll is easier and can be done pretty easily while you have the shirt on. I find it tough to do the normal roll with shirt on, which I think it why someone suggested doing it with the shirt off.

N - is that an inside roll?

i always just fold the cuff back, and then 2 more times. for me its far enough up the arm to look ok, but not so far that is constricts my movement. that is pretty major for me, i do like to be able to use my arms during the day. :P

No man. It's a shirt with (properly smile.gif) rolled-up sleeves. That's it. There's nothing to it.

I don't know what that is. smile.gif No, just an outside roll past the elbow.

i am teh confuse. how do you do that. is it all just scrunched up?

It's not really clear in that pic, but I just roll (outwards) a few times until the roll passes my elbow. I didn't know of other rolls until five minutes ago...
