Pics of rolled up cuffs on linen jackets would be much appreciated. Does one roll up the shirt cuffs as well as part of the look?

This is one of those things, like many Italian affectations, that if you have to ask then you shouldn't be doing it...

i think its great.



This comes more from utility and not worrying about being perfectly put together at all times.

I've seen some guys do it and pull it off. But it is one of those things that if it draws too much attention then it usually doesn't work. It has to be done to compliment the over-all look of what you are wearing and not be the focal point.

I think it can look good with distressed jeans and a linen jacket where the look is already a little creased and wrinkled. It probably won't work if the rest of your outfit is starched stiff and neatly pressed.
