Ask the MB: Sleeve Rolling

Ask the MB: Sleeve Rolling
Q: Is there a proper way to roll up your sleeves?
--Ben


A: There most certainly is. In fact, we chalked up John McCain's loss last November to deficient sleeve-rolling (as well as ironic over-accessorizing).

First, placement: you want to put them up past your elbows, like you're ready to give blood. Second, how you get there is crucial. A repetitive push-and-roll technique is required. As you turn the sleeve, simultaneously push it up your arm and repeat until it's past your elbow to achieve the perfect amount of artful dishevelment.
