    I've been struggling with this for years...

    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.
