Decisions, Decisions – Roll ups or Cuffed Jeans?

Let’s make this clear from the beginning, that the roll ups we are talking about are nothing to do with smoking as we Stylenerds would never endorse smoking (would we guys?!). Obviously, we are talking about  roll up jeans and they are now an ever-more common site when you roam the streets. Last year ,we followed the emergence of roll ups and now this trend has gone leaps and bounds so it’s time for a little update!

The Stylenerds are great Ambassadors of the Roll up movement because they are a great summer look. They also give a great Carrot fit silhouette, the jeans don’t bleed onto your fresh trainers and the jeans won’t cover up any of the great details you may have on your trainers.

The new Cuffed jeans are essentially jeans with elasticated bottoms to give the same sort of fit as a roll up. I like to refer to them as the lazy mans roll up but that’s not to say I don’t like them. It does the same job as roll ups but you need to shell out some extra money for them and they aren’t as versatile as your average pair of jeans for the sake of a 2 minute job.

Anyways, if you do choose to buy a cuffed pair of jeans I would recommend checking out Humor (Elefunk model) and Topman (Acid wash Denim jogger) for their selection. Humor also have a great range of carrot fit jeans and the detailing is mouthwatering (white rivets, tilted rear pockets… drool!)

Are cuffed jeans loose fit on the arse???

Unless specified as “carrot fit” they’ll be regular around the bum/thigh. So what I’d suggest is get the next waist size up and wear them low.

Pinrolling your denims/chinos looks better than elasticated bottoms in my opinion.
