    I dont know lately when the leather allows and when i wear the jacket open I do this a lot. I hope this is not a cancerous trend, but it looks more effortless and summer time ready.

    By the time I would get warm enough to think about rolling sleeves up to expose my arms, I'd long have ditched the jacket. I don't do well in heat at all.

    Not a look I like, and not sure what it accomplishes. Plus, it doesn't appear to be comfortable.

    Lol, I tried this a few times and the sleeves stay that way approximately 11 seconds. Literally impossible, even with denim.

    @navetsea you pull it off!
    I would feel like a fool going out in public like that.

    it's not about temp really, just about looks to me. if the sleeve past the widest part of the forearm, it stuck there all day, at least on my arm it stay like that, if the sleeve is too wide or too stiff, then it won't stay there, not sure if normal denim jacket's sleeve can be worn like that, maybe folding up is easier with denim jacket sleeve

    It rather makes me think of Don Johnson in the eighties...

    I seem to recall Eddie Van Halen doing similar. Not my bag, though looking back at those old Miami Vice shots, some of the cuts of DJ's suits were really nice, especially the waistlines, possibly the last time men's suits were properly cut with a waistband on the actual waist instead of below it...

    I often wish I could stumble over a warehouse of decent, early-mid eighties men's suits from when they were all doing the eighties-does-fifties thing!

    In general my rule of thumb is if you see a garment or fit and instantly the majority of the population would say "Thats so <era>!" it is likely not remembered fondly it is likely seen as a weird fad everyone did at some point in time. I would say srunched up jacket sleeves fits the "Thats so 80s" mold perfectly and likely something I'd avoid.

    yeah, def 80 90, but when I wear double knee pants, some people will associate it with 90s alien workshop pants, when I wear turtleneck under leather jacket it looks so 70s, lapel spread wide then it is disco 70s, most wjdywt would be seen as 50s, we can't really escape association since we use them as reference.

    unless we get super creative like biker jacket over pikachu onesie for example, no one can place us into certain era since it never happened before:D

    I think the distinction here is when I said the majority of the population. Sure people who follow fashion culture and trends pretty closely could make these references to various eras but if you showed a picture of a person on the street of a guy wearing a turtleneck + leather jacket some may say 70s but I'd imagine most wouldn't have a clue (for instance I wouldn't make that association.). But when you get era defining fits like rolled up blazers or late 90's JNCO jeans that most people could make the association is when I start to avoid recreating those fits.

    If it's too warm for long sleeves you just don't wear a leather jacket. It doesn't look natural nor comfortable.

    hmm, I have fond memory of 80s, the the toys were amazing, the anime cartoon were great, costume were futuristic, everything turned into cyborg, ninjas were cool , horror movies were scary, Mike Tyson was scary. I don't really understand why a lot of people pick 80s as the bad apple of all the decades

    I'm going against the general opinion here, but I like the look @navetsea is rocking. I do this with my goat Golden Bear crosszip, but I'm a sleeve pusher-upper in general. I think its because I play guitar and can't stand having cuffs and material flopping around near my strings or the guitar body, so I just got into the bare forearm habit unless I'm cold.
