Does anyone use sleeving anymore? Like using a Topit some surprising vanishes and production can result. However, now days fewer magicians wear jackets so using this technique may be rare.

Well I don't use it for Close-up! But a little for Stand-up!

I use sleeving during a one coin routine I perform as well as a topit. Like anything else it should not be overused.

Neither snow it rain or sleeve will keep me from my gigs.

To sneeze it not to sneeze

That is the question.

Depends on the season.
Less is more for this nearly normal coin guy.

Emil Jarrow was a top vaudeville act. He was also a great close up performer.

I, for one, do not appreciate, Mr. Christensen, your mentioning techniques in an open forum.

Jarrow could vanish a handful of LOOSE TOBACCO in his bare hands. He used THE technique. Asked how to learn to do it, he replied, "Practice with buckshot on a tin roof!"

You may not know it, but, many fine performers use THE technique.

Sleeving is like palming. Like a Double Lift. The technique is not described. No harm! Smile

I would love to use sleeving, but sports jackets aren't popular where I come from, I'd look suspicious before even doing anything! also it's too hot for long sleeves about eleven months a year here so...

And where might that be?

I always use a jacket when I perform, but don't use sleeving because I roll up my sleeves with the shirt sleeves pulled up over the jacket sleeves, which are also pulled up, similarly to Darwin Ortiz. I want to preclude "It went up his sleeve" as a possible explanation as to method.

Tel-Aviv, Israel.
Very hot weather, and at winter, such jackets are only rarely worn when attending a wedding or so.

Jackets are not particularly popular here in the U.S. either. But as a magician, don't you want to stand out rather than blend in with the crowd?

Standing out is one thing, passing out another thing entirely - which would probably be the case in Israel!

I worked in business in NYC for decades and a lot of times wore jackets, even suits quite often enough. I guess that's about how I began sleeving all the time. Smile I would do it on my way walking to the subways, waiting for trains, buses, etc., whenever I was up an about. It really was just a fun thing to do and practice. And the magic of it was always so immediately rewarding, whether I did it within an effect for people or just working on things myself (Actually came up with a few notable contributions in this area, just playing around with it). You keep playing with that thing and you just get pretty good at it, and you find a few nice ways of using it…I sure did. Smile

I still get to wear a nice sleeved sweater or jacket now and again, and the sleeving comes right back to me. I really think people should look into it more (Like I think folks should look more into the wonderful "Pitch" move as well), Smile because even if you don't sleeve or can't quite get to doing it much, it teaches some interesting things as to misdirection, pattering, movement, angles, blocking…magic.
