What's funny is if these pants came in my preferred inseam to begin with, I would never say "Geez, I wish they were longer."
When i feel like wearing them cuffed, i will, but most of the time since i'm wearing hi-tops i let them stack. My jeans are slim enough not to run under my shoes, anyway. But if i were wearing mocs, for example, i might cuff them just for a more casual (or sloppy, if you like
) look.Hemming problems by and large only arise because the hem was poorly done, i believe, or the material taken in was too much.
