colocándose los puños de la camisa

Context:

Si no se equivocaba, podría saciar su hambre en tan bello entorno sin tener que esperar ni un minuto más, seguro que esa belleza era una de las humanas de la lista que estaba esperando a su hermano. Decidido a vengarse de todas las ocasiones en las que Gale se había adelantado a él al beber de una de las chicas, se dispuso a ser el primero por una vez. Con velocidad preternatural, corrió hacia ella y se plantó a su lado en un par de segundos, entonces, carraspeó, colocándose los puños de la camisa, para llamar su atención.

fixing his cuffs to get her attention

My comment:

In this scenario, I can picture the man (or non-human) fixing or pretending to button up his cuffs nonchalantly to get the woman's attention.
