This Video Shows Off The Three Best Ways To Roll Up Your Sleeves

Rolling up the sleeves of a collared shirt isn't exactly rocket science, but there are a few different methods for doing so. The Art of Manliness Shows off three methods that work best in different situations.

The video shows you how to do three different rolls: the basic roll, which is best when you need your sleeves rolled past your elbow for manual labour; the casual forearm roll, which is great for avoiding wrinkles; and the master sleeve roll, which can be adjusted for a variety of lengths.

How to Roll up Your Sleeves [The Art of Manliness]


    Their master roll is a little different to the one I'm used to. I.e.:

    I buy collared shirts dress shirts for work, and they usually have a coloured trim inside the cuff and collar. The sales assistant taught me how to roll the sleeves in such a way that a strip of the coloured cuff is visible after rolling. It's basically the 'master roll', but you fold the cuff back to however high you want it up your arm, then roll the sleeve back on itself until you cover the coloured cuff. You have to space it such that the final fold leaves a small strip of the coloured cuff exposed. Looks good :)

    i have always just used the basic roll, sometimes casual if it's just going out for lunch / knock off beers with some mates. might give the master roll a go!
