Any decent suit trouser can be made to have turn ups as they usually have enough selvedge (extra fabric on the inside hem). Take it to a local alterations tailor (I'd ask around about which ones are good for the price) and they'll do it. Truthfully, I don't think pleats without turn ups is a cardinal sin, but if you do than it can certainly be fixed.

I think wearing single-pleated pants without cuffs looks fine. If your pants have two pleats then that is different. Not sure if a tailor can remove pleats (he probably CAN, but it is difficult/costly).

Thread Starter 
So I ended up purchasing a Corneliani "Spencer" charcoal suit today at Bloomingdale's for $500. Do you think that is a good price for a Super 100s suit (the fabric actually felt smoother than that, but im no fashion genius)? After consulting with the in-house tailor, I figured I need about $100 - $150 worth of tailoring on the suit before it's ready to wear. Of course, my other option is just to go to Mr. Ned and get the $850 per pop suit. Recommendations? It seems that Mr. Ned may be hard to beat - even the BB $500 1818 Collection sale right now doesn't seem to compare to a tailor-made suit for a couple hundred more.

One more question...how hard/costly would it be to tailor a "blouse-like" shirt such as the BB traditional shirts or the Ike Baher shirts at Saks? Would it be a better choice to pay CEGO a visit?

As I said... you CAN get cuffs on pants given there's enough extra fabric. I still don't understand, however, why it's considered such a sin here to have double pleats and no cuffs.

You need the cuffs to add some fullness to the legs of the trousers to balance the fullness of the double pleats at the waist.
