nope you can fold them inwards and tuck them into the little pockets I think. Hopefully someone can post a pic (on my phone right now haha) but yea I think there's a way around it? The azur is gorgeous!
You can fold tuck them in and leave the top exposed. I have posted a thread with pics if you want to do a search; I have the Naviglio in Azur and it is great, but wearing it with any blue jeans (even ones that have been worn and washed for years) still gets blue staining when it rubs against your leg. So now I don't wear it with blue jeans which is like a staple in my wardrobe.
