    what's the proper technique to get that "casual-i'm gettin my hands dirty-perfect length-cuffin because its hot out-but still wanna wear long sleeves" look?

    The first step is to find a jean that fits like RRDS. Have you done that yet?

    The answer also depends on how hairy your elbows are.

    I don't get it? Is this a short joke aimed at a 6ft guy?

    [​IMG] Just roll up your sleeves and not worry about it. It isn't like tying a tie.

    I noticed some people like to push rather than roll:

    1. Unbutton cuff. DO NOT UNBUTTON PLACKET!
    2. Flip cuff upwards. DO NOT ROLL CUFF OVER!
    3. "Push" the sleeve up to elbow.

    *Note: this requires slim sleeves or else the cuff will fall back down your arm, leaving you with a wrinkled sleeve and AmJack cuffs.

    I like the 1/3 cuff-start suggestion. That leaves you with a tight small cuff that you can either leave below the elbow or push up.

    When I roll "in da club" and happen to have a button down on I noticed that I am one of 4 people with rolled up sleeves. The three other bro's in striped shirts all unbutton the sleeve, fold it back once so they've got wings on their arms and push it back ever so slightly. I, on the other had, roll it back up past my elbow -- ready to rock at any moment.

    Welp, see ya guys later.
