CULTIZM Guide: Ready, steady, turn up!

For this turn-up-session we used a Dirty Fade Selvedge Denim from Naked&Famous. It was soaked once and worn over four month. 

Turning up your jeans adds something casual to any outfit. Use that to highlight your sneaker and your socks in your boots. Or just a little tan on ankles? We have curated several ways to turn up your jeans that all matches to a individual look. Just remember to always make sure that both legs are turned up in the same length!

Chain Stitch Turn-Up

Turn up your pant one time with about three centimeters of fabric. Show your chain stitch detail of your denim jeans – smooth out the fabric and make sure both legs are cuffed in the same length. This turn-up style is classic and suits to boots, sneakers and sandals.

Double Roll Turn-Up

Probably the most popular way to cuff your jeans, you will know it for sure. Just take the hem of your jeans and make one fold of around three centimeters. After that smooth out the fabric and fold the hem again. Please note always: make sure that the fabric is still smooth and neat.

The Pinroll Turn-Up

Grab about one to two centimeters of fabric between your thumb and forefinger of your jeans. Fold the fabric towards your leg diagonal to your ankle. Then you have to turn up the pant’s hem with two folds and smooth the fabric out to make it good-looking and proper.

The Skinny Turn-Up

Just grab the hemmed seam and fold it twice to create a thin small cuff. Make sure that the fabric is straight and sleek. This turn up style is matching to Red Wing, Viberg Boot and other boots for example.

The Tailored Turn-Up

Take a good part (about 6 cm) of the fabric and create an inside turn-up. The inside turn-up should be double the size of the end result. Then take half of your inside turn-up and create a normal outside turn-up. Now you created a finish without any inseam, selvedge or chain stitch.
