The latest trend in men fashion of rolling up jeans and pants is, to be honest, really cool.. As an added bonus, it exposes some sexy ankle and transferrable to women’s fashions As a fashion statement, rolled-up pant cuffs can be traced back to the 50s and 60s when larger-than-life legends such as James Dean, Marlon Brando, and even Elvis wore rolled pant cuffs.
The rolled-u...p pant cuff looks great on a pair of khakis with a pair of loafers or sandals. However, you can also roll- up your formal pants with dress shoes or can have rolled-up cuffs on dark denim jeans with black lace-up boots or canvas shoes.
There are some general rules of thumb regarding the actual ‘roll’, if you will. The cotton canvas trouser should consist of one inch of cuff folded three times and with denim, a single two-inch cuff folded twice or larger three-to-four inch cuff folded once. I don’t like seeing the cuffs all frumpy and coming undone, so I give them a taste of the old steam iron (especially on denim) for a better hold.
The great thing about the rolled-up pant cuff against a nice pair of shoes is that you can now show off your patterned socks.
