There’s a craft to rolling your sleeves. And I’m not talking about the dreaded flying-nun fold – an unbuttoned cuff that wings out when rolled up just once. I’m talking about a clean roll to the elbow. Here’s how to achieve it in three simple steps.

How to Roll Your Sleeves

  1. With buttons undone, flip back the cuff and get ready to roll.
  2. Fold your entire lower sleeve up so the bottom seam of the cuff rests just above the elbow.
  3. Roll the leftover fabric (from below the cuff) up and over. Tuck it all the way around for a uniform fold, leaving a quarter inch of cuff exposed for contrast.

And voilà, you’re ready to take on the day in laid-back – yet still polished – style.
