I have an obsession with rolled up shirt sleeves on men. There. It's out in the open now for all to see. Does it feel better? Only time will tell.
I don't really know why this is. Even if the guy isn't the nicest looking, if his sleeves are rolled up I immediately pay MUCH more attention to him. All because of those sleeves. I remember hearing on the news once that it's something to do with body language; that men who expose their forearm convey a more confident manner and are thus more likely to be interesting, or something like that at least. It doesn't need to be anything fancy - jeans and checked shirt, a plain black one (yum) or even a blazer and shirt with the sleeves pushed up oh-so-casually. Anything will do, as long as some of that lovely forearm is showing.
But enough, I'm creeping myself out a little now. On to some photos I have snooped and found that triggers the disease I christened "Rollyupatosis"
From lookbook.nu. See the casual push?
Brandon Flowers, you can do no wrong.
Jake M. Johnson from New Girl. Couldn't find a photo but in the wedding episode he's got a three piece suit on with braces and the shirt sleeves rolled. Nom nom.
Indiana Jones. All rugged, with a few more buttons done for extra yumminess.
THIS, I admit is a bit of an interesting one up against all the other pretty men I've included. But I think this goes with that science stuff about rolled sleeves exuding confidence and stuff. Barak is a clever man.
