A universal look that indicates work is about to be done, the cuffed shirt has since transformed into a fashion statement for those that aren’t actually going to be doing any hard labor but still want to appear active. It’s also a great way to stay cooler on hot days and otherwise come off as more casual than a button-up normally allows. That being said, there are three ways to do it, each serving their own purpose.
The Basic Roll
Perfect for actually doing work, this takes the sleeve back past the elbow. First, unbutton all the buttons of the cuff. Next, flip the cuff back and keep flipping, using the cuff to set the width of the fold. Do this until the sleeve is back past the elbow. It can go higher if need be.
The Casual Roll
If you’re aiming for a casual look, this is the easiest and quickest way. As like the first roll, unbutton the cuff. As for the gauntlet buttons, those can be left buttoned or unbuttoned based on preference. Fold the cuff back and fold it back once again. Tuck in any loose material.
The Master Roll
For the fashionable roll, you can’t go wrong with this. It may take some practice, but it is deemed the most acceptable when choosing to do this for style rather than purpose. Unbutton the cuff and unbutton the gauntlet buttons if you need to. Flip the cuff back once. Next, pull the flipped cuff back to either just below the elbow or just above it. Take the bottom of this folded sleeve and fold it up until it covers the cuff about halfway or three quarters of the way to show off as much or as little of the cuff as you want.
