How To: The J. Crew Roll

It's a well known fact that J. Crew has a very distinct, and very sought after sleeve roll. Well after much observation at the J. Crew store, I have figured out the secret, and have decided to share! The best part about the roll is that, unlike you average sleeve roll, this roll stays put all day long.


1) Start off with your sleeve as it would normally be.


2) Roll the sleeve so the cuff is about where you would want your roll to be.


3) Take the bottom of the roll and roll up again. (this is their trick). Make sure to stop the roll right under the cuff line.


4) Pull the cuff down, so the pattern shows. You can neaten it up by styling the cuff flat, or go for the messy look by having the cuff stick out a bit.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I actually saw some related tips from a former J.Crew stylist over at Babble a few weeks ago - they didn't have your last step though. :)
