Cuffing. It’s not just the time of the year when people look for cuddle buddies to stay warm in the winter and to get gifts, but how you roll up the hems of your pants so that they’re not dragging around the floor.
The Single Roll
This is actually the easiest one out of all rolls. All that you have to do is flip up your cuff once and then you can choose to tuck the hem behind the cuff or leave it as is. This roll works well with any pair of jeans and is often used to trim the hem without resorting in anything permanent. However, because this roll doesn’t tape the bottom of the pants, it doesn’t’ pair well with slim shoes.
The Long Roll
This roll is exactly the same as the single roll except you just roll up your pants higher. It works great for shortening pant length but beware that it also shortens your overall leg length as well.
Because the roll is more noticeable, it’s suggested to pair it with heavier shoes so so that it balances out the roll.
The Skinny Roll
This roll works fantastically with thinner fabrics since it holds better than a large fold. All you have to do is quickly fold up your hem about 3 times and bam! You’re done! We suggest pairing this cuff with lighter and less bulkier shoes such as sneakers, since the hem is so thin.
The Double Roll
Do the single roll, and then roll it up one more time. Similar to the long roll, it’s easy to appear short, so this roll should be avoided by the vertically challenged.
This roll works best with starchier fabrics as it comes off as much cleaner-looking.
The Cyclist Roll
Begin with the double roll and then push the cuff up to about your knee. This cuff is perfect for the cyclist that doesn’t want to mess up their pants with the oils found on the bike chains. Summer adventurers who enjoy wading in waters can also utilize this roll as well.
This cuff is best for lighter fabrics as heavier ones will bunch up at the ankles and won’t have much give to be pushed up towards the knees.
This cuff is fantastic for slimming down wider pant legs, but if you have pants that are overly wide, you’re going to end up looking like you’re wearing parachute pants. So be careful which ones that you pick.
To do the pinroll, pinch in roughly 1 inch of fabric at the inseam before you begin you roll. Make sure to roll at least 2-3 times to ensure that the cuff does not come undone.
