    I'm sure there are some around here who say that the only right way to roll up your sleeves is to leave them buttoned and learn to deal with it, honkey. My guess however is that these folks do not live where it is currently 100+ at 9pm, or if they do are not spending much time outside.

    I call my sleeve-rolling technique the "fuck-those-strangers-on-the-internet-push-n'-tuck".

    Similarly, I feel that GQ's advice is sometimes really, really shitty. I always have my roll past my elbows for practicality's sake.

    Raoul, why don't you commit something to this thread, then? I admitted, the dress shirt probably isn't, the way to go. I had two waitresses flirt with me today; I'm pretty sure it had something, to do with the fit. I have a misses, and I'm not trying to show off, but formality of the shirt aside, I dont think it's bad at all. I think I'll give the tailored fit a try; it's slimmer than the slim fit. I need to work out more. The sleeve-rolling is totally subjective. I hate a two-roll thing; I think it looks middle-aged sloppy, but that is only my opinion. Fuck rules.

    Interesting subject.
    My stand: no roll for dress shirts and they should not be donned without a jacket. The technique itself should reflect the outfit, a crispy roll for a crispy outfit, but I usually roll my sleeves past the elbow for, as the I am DIL said, praticatility's sake.

    The photo does not represent the weather, which was sunny, when I donned the outfit, but one should not exchange fun for more accurate colors, right?

    I cannot imagine a context in which a man of your apparent age could appropriately wear that neckerchief. Throw in the baggy, becrested shirt, and this sinks to the level of trainwreck.

    Okay, I can imagine a context: Are you with Andre 3000's entourage? If so, I think you need to step up your game. Better fit, poppier colors. You know. More steeze.

    Neckerchiefs are pretty common where I live.
    The shirt is that bad? My bad...
    Anything else?

    Unfortunately wearing that in Andre 3000's entourage would get you thrown out of Andre 3000's entourage pretty damn fast. Something tells me he isn't going for the grandiloquent with that ascot, anyway. This is horrendous and you're about to get three-and-a-half pages of shit in this and the SW&D thread, but if you ditch the ascot and swap that horrible polo for one without a gross graphic and with a better fit, it would be significantly better.
