    I am not even going to bother watching it. How can he possibly explain all of the intricacies of shirt sleeve rolling when the video is only 5 minutes long?

    It takes me a good 10 minutes to do one sleeve--and that is without lecturing

    The Army does it right. The Marines do it wrong. This is a fact.

    This is all great but how do you roll them down? I think about the future a lot.

    Fantastic inputs!

    Is there a "Casual Shirts 101" thread? I've used this forum to get educated on chinos and chukkas, but have no idea how to shop for proper OCBDs. I don't want to look like a lumberjack, or a walking paisley tie... and that's the best I can offer. :foo:

    Depending on shirt quality, it might just be easier to cut the sleeves off, it might even look better :lol:

    This could rival Vox's A&S thread for information! Can wait to see more posts on this subject!!!

    I like the new take on sleeve rolling, but I think pattern matching is an important thing to consider.

    I know that some of you have slipped and fallen in the snow whilst rolling up your sleeves.

    It would be great if you would share your stories, photos, and memorabilia in this thread.
