3/4 length sleeves look weird if there isn't any rolling/cuffing/stacking action going on.

it's like how really tight jeans that end right at the shoes begin to look like tights.

i hate fashion that has no practical value when it doesnt even result in a unique shilouette/aeshetic

might as well take a long sleeve shirt and shrink it , you'll look retarded either way

i have seen tees with slim sleeves that run to the elbow, and those have potential in my book, but not basic 3/4 sleeve shirts

I will say that I think the 3/4 t-shirts are somewhat more acceptable in my book. I don't know. They just don't look as strange to me. Although the concept of having 3/4ths of a sleeve isnt any less ridiculous.

I see no point in 3/4 sleeve anything other than baseball sleeves. Button ups should either be long or short. Short = straight chillin Long = professional. There is no room for 3/4 sleeves except for baseball. And that's where you can go to a sports store and cop a ball tee for $7.

The 3/4th look on baseball tees don't look that bad in my opinion, but that same look on a button-up shirt seems sort of weird to me. It's easy enough to roll up the sleeves on your already existing shirts anyway.

there is nothing better in this world than a 3/4 length sleeve, whether designed that way or a long-sleeve rolled up. barring formal events, the only thing i actually leave long-sleeved is outerwear, everything else gets usually gets rolled/cuffed up, tees and sweaters alike. always look like you just came from doing some work and are about to go do some more.

Can someone insert an amusing "this thread is nothing without pics" jpg as i'm still sceptical that these things can be rocked.

Word.

Long sleeves are more versatile as you can have them long or roll them up. With 3/4 sleeves you're in no-man's land.

So, rolled sleeves or full length sleeves are more functional than 3/4 sleeves? I don't follow the "function" argument. Maybe that full sleeves keep that last 1/4 of your arm warmer in the winter? Same can be said about 3/4 sleeves keeping your arms cooler in the summer without having to roll them (which some people might claim is uncomfortable - under blazers for example). Now, I don't know if this is an "attractive" silhouette or aesthetic but it is certainly unique, I would say.

But also look at how a lot of slim fitting cardigans and sweaters are worn these days, usually not full length unless they're going for the oversized/drapey look.

I'm not saying this is brilliant or anything, but with the way proportion and fit in fashion evolves so quickly these days, crying BLASPHEMY about the proportion of a garment is, in my opinion, more "retarded" than the specific concept in question. I would have expected sufu'ers to be more open-minded.

1. sufu'ers are more closed-minded than ku kluxers in a gourmet international buffet.

2. you are completely right.

3. who's stopping me from rolling my 3/4 sleeve shirt into short sleeves?

That's why I think long sleeve shirts are better. You can roll them to any length, thus making them more versatile.

I'm not against 3/4 length shirts on an aesthetic level, just on practicality.

you can't roll a long sleeve into a short sleeve without it being really uncomfortably tight, at least i can't. even rolling up to 3/4 sometimes is a uncomfortable if i'm wearing a jacket or coat. pre-fab 3/4 sleeves are extremely practical if you want to achieve the look of a 3/4 sleeve without the bulk of a cuff.

not only do i have a 3/4 sleeve button down, it's french cuff. i am with herps - it looks fine, albeit dandyish. but hey, if this isn't dandy central then i don't know what is. i am weaning myself from dandyism and thus have it on my soon-to-be-retired summer sale page so if one of you guys want to show you were down with this micro-trend years ago (courtesy of dries) you know where to find me!

I think 3/4 sleeves is something you wear when your girlfriend wants to bring you around her friends.

Thats about it. Yea, kind of dandyish.
