Indeed. And my opinion is quite the reverse. I don't think I've ever had a pair of trousers with cuffs. I had them removed from a number of purchases.

My summer weighted pants are no cuff but most fall/winter weight go cuffed. Something about that little extra heft makes the drape better imo.

Well, if you're sure about this take on the matter, don't tell it to Butler. You'll have to call him ridiculous.

Still, I agree that gauntlet cuffs or trouser cuffs best suit the tall. We usually have legs or hands that look disproportionate to our short torsos, so cuffs of both kinds are a great help.

I think I just did though? smile.gif Is he short? He doesn't look short. So I guess there's balance after all eh? Dude looks very nice in that outfit either way. There is no rule without exceptions. I can only hope to look that good at his age.

I believe it is a myth, and unless you are very short (you know who I'm referring to peepwall[1].gif it works nicely - I'm 176 cm/5.9 short bigstar[1].gif

Right, my bad, I remembered Butler being in the less-than-173cm league which I define as the European short.
