That is very true. And if you think about it, it makes sense.

With cuffs, the hem of my trousers doesn't seem to get caught at the back of my shoes which is the case with most of my uncuffed pants. I think it drapes better as well.

Men who wish to appear taller should generally avoid interrupting the vertical lines of their silhouette with horizontal lines. Cuffed trousers work against this principle. Cuffs may not make a man look shorter than he really is, but they they certainly won't help him look any taller.

I think I'm going to go with cuffs.

What do you think about the back pocket style? I can choose form no pockets at all, the classic double pockets with a button or just one pocket on the one side.

If I do choose the "one pocket on one side" which side should it be?


Thanks
John

Most of the time it's on the right side. This works well for me, but then again, I'm right handed.

I am left handed, but still good with my right hand.

I'll see. maybe I'll go with the right just to be traditional.

bumping old thread for question.

I bought a pair of Incotex here that I knew would need shortening. should I have cuffs put in at the same time?

these are charcoal wool (light flannel) flat front. I am a bigger guy. these fit as slim as I find comfortable, though in the pic they don't really look that way. forgive the smudgy mirror.

Cuff.

How wide are they at the hem and how big are your feet? Cuffing works best with less break, and the wider the pants the more break they need. If the hem width is more than 2/3 of your foot length go without cuffs.

+1. When you take 'em in, make sure you are wearing shoes and not snwakers/boots that you would never wear with the pants. And try them on. Don't guesstimate.
