Doesn't the shoe dictate? Â My general practice: Â oxfords and brogues - cuff; Â monks and slip ons - cuff not.
I disagree--I think cuffed pants look great w/ the right monk shoe. Speaking off (or on) the cuff, here's a scenario for you: recently I purchased a lovely pair of charcoal 100% cashmere Incotex flat front pants (thanks again Lance/discostu). Being that they are flat front, my initial inclination was to leave them cuffless, but upon observing them, a friend of mine (who is definitely not a cuff guy) suggested that I cuff them, to "honor" the beautiful fabric. What's your take (assuming you're not militantly anti-cuff)? fwiw: I am approx. 5'8", of fairly slender build, and basically all my other dress pants are double pleat w/cuffs. Also, the pants in question are lightweight/4 season.
