    I always thought that the proper way to roll up sleeves was to pull the cuff up your arm and hten roll the non-cuff part of the shirt over the cuff. That's the best way I can describe it - try to picture it. You are essentially turning the bottom quarter of your sleeve inside out. This makes my sleeve end just below my elbow.

    i like that method as well - it looks a lot less like you have a doughnut wrapped around your forearm. a more 'layered', folded look, because you see the cuff protruding under the roll.

    also you can turn down the corners of the cuff for some added 'sprezzatura'.

    i first ran across this method outlined in 'Cargo' magazine, maybe a year or so ago.

    That actually sounds like a pretty good idea to me - the idea of rolling up your sleeves whilst running a meeting. As long as everyone else can do it too. Would definitely make things flow a lot easier than if everyone was all buttoned up and uncomfortable.

    It did occur to me. Might start a new one, see if attitudes have changed since 2007 - ha ha.
