Tight rolled pants, also referred to as pegged pants, was a fad of the late 1980s early 1990s in which girls and boys would tightly roll the bottoms of their jeans or other pants that they wore.
On full length pants, tight rolling is achieved 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. Safety pins can be used to assist with the roll, but they are not essential. Proper tight rolled pants will have an extreme taper to the ankle with a tight hem.
