* I was trying on some new formal pants I got, and my wife said almost those exact words: "when will men realize that women don't find pleated pants sexy?" Then I put on my new tailcoat and she said, "they don't look so bad now."
Don't focus on one single element. Focus on the whole picture. Some things that look terrible in isolation can look great when put in the appropriate context.
Maybe I know too many rockabillies/vintage fetishists, but I tend not to do 3", 3.5" cuffs that often because it's kind of old hat. Everyone I know who does it has been doing it for decades—some since 1977. I know one dude who got made fun of by one John Lydon for doing it, right around then.
But if you go to East LA, say, you'll see a whole new generation of young Chipsters doing it, every generation. Just follow the Bombas and lowriders. Maybe it is an LA thing, as well.
There are essentially two types of woman, and two things they respectively find sexy.
1.) Someone who is confident, interesting, and interested in them
2.) A big bag of money
Being fit helps. Youth is a factor but not all that important. If you have one of the above criteria in sufficient abundance, you can get away with being pretty old, fat, and ugly.
Fortunately the second kind of woman is, for most of us, fairly easy to avoid.
On the subject of folded up excess in trousers, when I was younger (and Eisenhower was President) the excess in my trousers was sewn up inside, and let down as needed, ending up with the results shown in this picture.
However, once one is fully grown, I don't see the purpose of folded up excesses in trousers.....
The last three people to post fits in jeans have had at least 3 inch cuffs. I don't spend much time in the SWD side, but I'm guessing this is a thing. On the CM side, pant cuffs pretty much max out at 2 inches. I was wondering what is the max cuff for denim, if there is one?
I am not sure it is a thing so much as personal preference. Personal preference for me is that 3" is a little much, and if I need to roll my jeans that much, I will usually roll them twice over with a smaller cuff.. that said, I am actually having a bunch of my denim hemmed with a chainstitch hem so that I don't need to roll them anymore. I don't stack, and just want some variety in terms of how I can wear jeans..
