From what I've read , and always been told by salesman and tailors : Pleated pants -- cuffs -- add weight to pant leg to help keep pleats straight, also adds visual weight to balance upper pleated design. Plain front pants, no cuffs -- also a more youthfull appearence Their are though always exceptions -- tux pants, though pleated: no cuffs. Double breasted suits-- cuffs , whether pleated or not-- cuffs to visuallly balance heft of jacket Myself ( being vertically...
I do the patent leather tux shoes, myself. However, I feel that a pair of black plain toe or unadorned caps would work fine, if given a spit polish ( as in Holdfast's link, above ). I wouldn't wear any shoe that is so busy as to be the detracting point of interest. The tux in and of it's self should be the main focal point ( after me ofcourse ). Roger

Never heard the one about cover one's rear cheeks. However, what I have been told by sales people since I bought my first suit, back in the 60's; was with arms relaxed at sides -- you should be able to cup your hands under jacket ( touch fingers to palms ), and not move fabric , then it's the right length. Or another way is -- with arms relaxed, bottom of jacket should be at mid thumb. You could also go online to most suit manuf. and check a sizing chart. Short is most...
Looks good on you, excellent fit -- except I agree about pants being too short. As far as cuffs go - - rule is generally -- pleated / cuffs -- plain front / no cuffs. Rules although are not always followed, and I feel cuffless is more youthfull looking. And even if they are pleated, I also feel that that pattern and fabric would look a bit bulky with cuffs, unless you're over 60 and 275 lbs. ( but in which case, you would look like W C Fields in that suit ). Roger

Maybe I've been shopping at the wrong places. The only suits I've seen where you get more than one pair of trousers are the ones sold as separates, jackets on one rack and trousers on another. And they really aren't the high- end suits. Although I suppose you could special order anothe pair, but never considered it. As Brian mentioned, you could use it as a sports jacket or change the buttons and call it a blaser. Roger
I did for a short time, getting ready for a fittness/ body building show; many years ago. But I did it the easy way, girl friend. After which I tipped her very well. There are places you can't possibly reach ( or see ), unless you're double jointed. Roger
