Ahhh... talk about Keeping It Old Skool. Tight-rolled pants were a huge rage back in the 1980's and early 1990's. I'll be honest - I thought it was cool, and tried to incorporate this awesome fad with my school attire. Granted, the hot jocks looked so much better than I did. You know - the football, baseball, and soccer players? I thought they looked hot sporting those tight rolled up pants - I'll spare you the details of my fantasies.
I love how Wikipedia describes it below, LOL.
"girls and boys would tight-roll the bottoms of their jeans or any pants that they wore. On full length pants tight rolling is performed by taking up the slack around the ankles at the hem of the pants, folding the extra material over and then rolling upwards 2 or 3 times over. A proper tight-roll should have the extra material folded inward across the lower shin. The use of safety pins was key to a good roll, but to the experienced tight roller they can be achieved without them. "
And yes, everyone did it - even the celebrities on television, like Zac Morris from Saved by the Bell. I think every gay boy in America had a huge crush on him growing up.
I also found this hilarious instructional video on YouTube on how to sport those tight-rolled up pants.
Who knows? You may find you like it; I have heard they're making a comeback.
