Today we would like to share about cuffing, reported from JackThreads. Whenever you cuff your denim, you will like more hotter and cool, so happy reading and try this at home!
As Confucious once said: “Perfectly fitting jeans are only as good as the cuffs you roll ’em with.” That’s right, he totally said it, and we’ve totally got the hem-handling wisdom you need to get the very most out of your denim. Skinny, pinroll, single roll, even cuffless — these 6 super-suave, simple rolling techniques will take your denim to a whole new level.
Here is a highlight of the tips and rules to consider:
- Cuffing your jeans is optional
- Only cuff on slimmer fit jeans. You want a clean, tapered look.
- Aim for the pant laying at the top of the shoe.
- A wider roll is more casual than a narrower roll.
- Cuffed jeans is a pretty timeless trend.
THE SINGLE ROLL
How to do it: Fold up once, then tuck the hem behind the folded portion, if you prefer.
Denim it works with: Pretty much any jeans.
Shoes you should wear: Boots, chukkas, and other wide-instep shoes (Anything too narrow will look like a slipper because this cuff doesn’t taper.)
THE LONG ROLL
How to do it: Add a few more inches to your roll to take care of any extra fabric length.
Denim it works with: Slender cuts and selvedge you want to show off. But beware short dudes: it makes your legs look squat.
Shoes you should wear: The pronounced look is best with heavier boots & shoes. Probably not sneakers.
THE SKINNY ROLL
How to do it: Three thin, tight flips of the hem.
Denim it works with: Lighter-weight denims — anything too stiff/thick will bulk up.
Shoes you should wear: Because it’s so thin, choose a lighter shoe (like a canvas sneaker) rather than a heavy boot.
How to do it: Roll those hems up twice, but as with the “long single”, be careful — this thick band can shorten your appearance from the waist down.
Denim is works with: Light to mid-weights, but something with a little more heft will look cleaner.
Shoes you should wear: Bucks, chukkas, chunky sneakers, or boat shoes, basically anything.
THE CYCLIST/SUMMER CUFF
How to do it: Fold the hem over twice The Double-Cuff. Then slide it the rest of the way up your calf so it sits just under your knee. If you’re a cyclist trying to protect your pants from chain grease, do your chain-side leg. In the summer time / when the weather is fine.
Denim it works with: Light denims, as the fabric will be bunch up around your calves.
Shoes you should wear: Sandals, light summer shoes, or bike-specific kicks.
