After months of curiosity, I sorta figured out why some people roll up one pant leg. I consider myself pretty practical, so this concept of rolling up one pant leg always had me pondering. Like, why roll up one pant leg? Why not roll them both up? Perhaps it also has to do with me always needing things to remain equally balanced.
For bikers, they roll up their right pant leg so that it doesn’t get caught on the chain. It makes perfect sense doesn’t it? Well thankfully, of all the years I’ve ever ridden a bike, I’ve never had an issue with my jeans getting caught on the chain. Doesn’t that seem awfully dangerous?! Do THAT many people get their pants stuck on the chain? Most the bicyclist I see around campus wear tight jeans anyway…so what’s up with this one pant roll up ordeal?
But yes, for the sake of being practical, people roll up one pant leg to avoid dangerous bike accidents and ripped jeans. As for others, it’s a fashion statement? I guess I just don’t have that knack for fashion.
I bet you’re thinking…why the heck did I read this huh? haha… it’s been on my mind for awhile!
