I like what is often called EZ's sewn bind off for a cuff. EZ for Elizabeth Zimmermann. You can make it tight if you try, but if you keep it neat, but not tight it works well and you can do it even looser if you want.
Here's how. Thread a big blunt sewing needle, *go purlwise through the first two stitches, then knitwise back through the first one and ease it off the end of the needle. Repeat from *. Each stitch ends up being gone through 2 times. This looks good on ribbing or whatever I've tried it on.
Warning: It is undoable, but it is a slow process involving several steps.
If you are working in the round for your sleeve, when I get to the end and only have one stitch I go purlwise through that stitch and through the first bond off stitch in the round, then back knitwise through the one on the needle. Looks good.
