Wearing one's trousers rolled

Posted by Atabraiz on February 19, 2009 at 09:13

What is the meaning of 'wearing one's trousers rolled'? It appears in T.S Eliot's Prufrock, along with 'do i dare to eat the peach?' To eat the peach could actually be a 'daring' thing to do in old age when one's teeth are not strong enough ... but I can't understand the rolled trousers. Is it because of shrunken bones?
