They have to be cropped or rolled-up. This is the current trend to impact the world of mens fashion. Experimenting with this trend is very doable, and perfect for the summer season. It looks best when worn sockless with a pair of dark denims rolled up to your ankles and chic hard-bottom shoes. You can also go for a formal approach–have your suit pants cut/altered to the ankle or integrate a pair of chinos (rolled up of course) with a slick blazer jacket and collared shirt.
A slew of pro athletes experimented with this trendy look for the 2014 ESPY Awards and Nickelodeon Kids Choice Sports. Who pulled off the look best?
