pendulous (adj): hanging down loosely and moving from side to side

enter image description here

The sleeve seems to be a bit too long, which makes you uncomfortable.

Do you say "don't leave your sleeve pendulous, roll it up"?

but "pendulous" is not a "down to earth" adjective.

or say "don't leave the sleeve dangled"?

What is the better way to express it?

  • Roll up your [shirt] sleeves. Just that. – Michael Harvey Feb 15 at 11:17
  • "Don't let your sleeves hang down." – Kate Bunting Feb 15 at 14:37
  • @KateBunting, what about "Don't let your sleeves dangled"? – Tom Feb 15 at 14:45
  • "Don't let them dangle". But dangling refers more to something hanging freely on its own, like a trailing string. – Kate Bunting Feb 15 at 14:55
