Where does the Pin Roll Trend come from

If you look at Instagram and see every 17-year-old sneakerhead running around with a pin roll, you might almost think the trend is something completely new.

  1. The trousers should not be too thick in terms of material. Thick materials complicate the pin roll and make the resulting bead very thick, which in most cases does not look good.

  4. Your jeans should not be too short. If your jeans are short before turning around, it will probably look like a flood or three-quarter pants after the pin roll.
