Don't call it a comeback

Rolled jeans, pinch-rolled jeans, pegged jeans, peg-legged jeans, tight-rolled jeans -- whatever you call it, it's a style that is totally rad*

Me

Heather

Dave

Sarah

How about you? Are you one of the cool kids?

*Yes, I realize that "rad" is somewhat anachronistic, but I can't remember words that were actually cool in the late 80s.

I have to get some photographic proof for you. I was way into jean rolling. I remember spending HOURS trying to perfect it. Let me just tell you, having super skinny ankles with long feet is only exacerbated with jean rolling, but somehow this was missed on me.

Jenny said...

My jeans are all flared, I'm not sure if I can roll 'em. But I will TRY!

Thomas said...

Consider me uncool then.

AmourArmor said...

LOL. I liked Thomas's answer.

I doubt this will catch on. But Heather's roll-up was really nice.

Neal said...

My legs are too long to sacrifice any pant length to rolling.

I love letting rolled jeans down once in a while. Air em out. All sorts of junk gets caught in there. You never know what you might find. This one time I found a pizza and a six pack of beer that I accused my neighbor of stealing the week prior.

Haha .. I don't do fashion. I just wear whatever I feel like wearing. Sometimes I do tend to get awkward faces, but oh, well, I am who I am. I'll roll my trousers tomorrow too and go for the Chris Cope-look, coz I feel like doing that! Maybe I'll wear my trousers inside out as well.

Afe said...

I don't do fashion either. Perhaps that's why I'm so lonely.

I still peg-roll my jeans if I am riding my bike. I know I look like an 80s reject, but hey getting your pants caught in your chain or pedal can make you fly off the bike. So I will dork it on!

Maybe I will get a picture for you sometime.
