    so i see a lot of people rolling the bottom of their jeans up showing a little ankle cleavage, i tried this method but came across issues. Now I know you're asking yourself "how do you have issues rolling jeans?" But when I see the roles in your pictures, they are very crisp and clean, do you iron them? Please tell me your secrets!!!

    Also wth does WAYWT mean? I googled it and found NOTHING

    Generally works best when they're very dry and starchy.

    Worked well with my Nudies at first but now it's 'looser' and I'm not so keen.

    Apart from this, I'm not sure. Surely a slim fit/leg opening has something to do with it.

    Don't roll jeans. Wear jeans that fit, or jeans that break at the ankle if that's the look that you're going for.

    That is all.

    Fail advice is fail.

    Might as well say don't unbutton more than your top button. Styling is never steadfast.

    i tend to wear non skinny leg jeans, and i think thats the main problem. the only problem is that I think skinny jeans arent for my body type, i love the style though [​IMG]

    Not well.






    I actually wore rolled navy chinos today. They're pretty slim though. You can peg leg wider trousers and still get a fine effect. Doing it to loose pants can work too depending on the rest of the stuff you're wearing

    I want chicken grease. They closed the Guthrie's by my apartment. For those who live in the south, you can feel my pain. [​IMG]

    I work in a deli. We make oven roasted rotisserie chickens. I had rolled my baggy chino target specials up a little bit on my break and then unrolled them when I went back to work. I hadn't rolled them down enough I guess. Because when I transferred the cooled-down drip pan to the dish washing station, some of the oil slosh that might have been caught by my pants or the floor was caught instead by my naked ankle and my sperrys.

    rinsed out sperrys in mop sink though, good as new. also, it was a good thing the oil was cooled down, because accidents suck... and probably would have resulted in a lot of 'why aren't you wearing socks...' and 'work safe' and 'don't spill. BLAH BLAH BLAH
