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. Reportedly, the fad made a comeback in the first decade of the 2000s, beginning in London.
Though the practice is typically referred to as "rolling", the proper term is, according to Dutch newspaper Trouw, "folding". In Sweden, a factory worker was fired from his job because, it was argued, tight-rolled pants can pose a safety risk.
