Am I damaging my hems?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My RRDS' are a 34" inseam so I have them cuffed a good 2 inches so they wouldn't get stepped on. I read that after creases start forming they'll get somewhat shorter. Makes sense. Well I have a decent amout of creasing going on, especially behind the knee, but I am starting to notice some heavy wear by my heels. Doesn't look like I am stepping on them per say, but they are at least dragging on the floor. Of course it depends on which sneakers I wear, but I am not sure what to do. As long as I am not stepping on them they should hold up right? Once I wash them I may not have to cuff them at all - I mean I'd even hem them once they've shrunk if they're still too long. Advice? Please.

How about a 3" cuff?

3" is not for everyone, to be sure. But to me, it is the only proper length for a cuff. It's the magic number. (No more, no less)

According to who if you dont mind? Incidentally, before I had my jeans hemmed I cuffed them around 3inches (prob a bit more).

Anything to avoid looking like I was attacked by that 'parking lot ankle slasher' dude.

Cuffs are color-blind.

I double cuff mine. Either really dorky or just different, I'm not sure but I don't rock the 3-4 inch cuff. Looks fine with topsiders. When I don't have my topsiders on I'm wearing my boots and then I uncuff and stack. I'd try to adjust things so you don't wear a hole in your pants 2 inches above the hem. At least adjust the cuff a bit with different shoes to try and prevent the wear from happening in just one spot.

I'm a fan of the big single cuff myself (although I've never measured). I hate the small cuffs.

Flip up 1", then flip up another 2". Done.
