Hey back, Brownie,
Do you mean aesthetically how far up should you roll them, or what method of rolling "holds" the best, or what?
The best advice is probably "don't", but I suppose that's not what you're looking for.

If by part of the sleeve you mean the button partway up your forearm, in my experience you need to unbutton that or it ends up folding funky. I don't really roll my sleeves up much, but I've generally used the cuff as basically a guide for the size of the first fold, then folded twice above that, which usually leaves the sleeve reaching a little ways below your elbow. I think folding looks neater than actual rolling, unless you're going to tuck a pack of ciggies in there.
