Part of becoming a grown man is learning the basics all over again. See, when you were a kid, everything you wore and how you wore it was typically centered around immediate needs or desires. Hence, if you grew too hot and didn’t know how to roll up sleeves properly, that certainly didn’t stop you from scrunching as high as you can go and rocking the look as long as you could carry it. And when those sleeves drooped back down? Well, you simply scrunched them back up again. After all, there were more important things to tend to, like playing with What Jacket Does James Bond Wear in No Time to Die?. Ahhh, the impulsive whims of youth.
But guess what? You’re all grown up now. That means paying the rent, getting a job, being generally more responsible, and exploring dress techniques that are not just optimal, but far less sloppy looking. Among the many fundamentals you must rediscover as you pass into manhood is learning how to roll up sleeves all over again. For that, take no shame in heeding a few pointers by referring to the infographic below. It outlines how to roll up sleeves by way of three different methods, and no this isn’t one of those scrunch-er or over-fold moments. Time to roll those sleeves up and check out the infographic…on how to roll up sleeves. Then we’ll pick things back up after at the bottom.
As the infographic shows, rolling up sleeves is a relatively painless art form but an art form nonetheless. And don’t think just because no one’s commending you on your top-notch sleeve rolling performance that they aren’t taking notice. Rolling up sleeves is just one of those things people will only talk about when done poorly and you don’t want to be the guy who does it poorly. Trust us. Not because we once rolled up our sleeves improperly, but because we used to make fun of the gents who didn’t (kidding, kidding).
Being a grown-up means dressing the part, and dressing the part means scoping the hottest brands and bidding adieu to sloppy short-cuts. Show others what a big boy you’ve become by throwing on a stylish dress shirt and rolling up those sleeves like a man. Your mother will be so proud!
