On Sleeve Rolling.

March 3, 2016

I do three rolls of the cuff. The first one establishes the fold. The second one secures it. And the third one DOUBLE-secures it so that it won’t ever come loose. If I have only two rolls, there’s just one roll standing between me and a floppy, unbuttoned shirtsleeve. I can’t risk it. Also, I like to roll it just past the crook of my elbow, so that the elbow can hinge freely, and so I look like a detective who’s been poring over crime scene photos all night long. THESE VICTIMS ALL HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON AND I’M JUST NOT SEEING IT.
