    I definitely do like pinrolling with sneakers; it shows off the shoes without looking like full-on joggers. I never thought to do it in this context...maybe tomorrow's WIWT

      Sounds good! I'd recommend a bit of a looser pinroll with boat shoes though, since the whole purpose of summer outfits is to keep everything breathable, so you don't wanna totally close off those airways

          Is there actually a difference? I thought the only difference was the age of the person saying it.

            We actually call that "pegging" your jeans in New England.

              My father refers to it as "pegging"; I've heard it as "pinroll" in both England and the US. "Tightroll" would likely be correct as well, I was just clarifying as I'd never heard it that way before.

                Today's springy WIWT with [MENTION=14616]CJMichaelRay[/MENTION]'s suggestion of pinrolls with boat shoes.

                SS button-down: Reyn Spooner Natural Indigo (one of my most prized possessions)
                Pants: Levi's 513 corduroys
                Belt: American Eagle
                Shoes: Sperry Authentic Original two-eye

                Close-up on the shirt. Not overly aloha shirt looking, I don't think.

                Shot of how the pants look with the pinrolls. A bit messy bc I'm working on looser rolls.

                  [MENTION=15132]Terminado[/MENTION] I'm not sure I like the pinroll -- it makes your cords look like joggers. The way you had it done yesterday was better, IMO.

                    I'm not sure I do either, and it kinda restricts the airflow. You gotta experiment sometimes though!

                      Agree on the joggers esque look

                        Yup. After actually seeing it done, I agree. Maybe it would be worth it to have the chinos tapered, unless he likes having the flair around the ankle, then more power to him.

                          I have a jacket I need to take in to be tailored, so I'll inquire about the pants when I go in for that. I'm back to the loose roll for now.

                            I'm a little ambivalent about these trousers. I like the linen material but the stripe makes me feel like I'm wearing pajama pants. The Bedford slim fit is also just "ok." I think the Bedford classic, worn one size smaller, is actually a better overall fit.
                            Like the belt style, a bit like one I used to make. Please tell me more about it if you can find time.

                                Uhh, not sure what you want to know about it. Just a basic casual braided belt from LE.
