I'm curious as to people's thoughts on wool dress pants being rolled up vs. hemmed to the right length when paired with a suit jacket. I've seen both in many different images. To me, rolled up hems indicate a degree of casualness especially when worn with a matching suit jacket. Hemming to the right length is more like a traditional suit attire. Does it just come down to personal preferences?
Either way can work, but I think there should be a certain level of disheveledness. Things shouldn't be so perfect. Just for visual interest, I like to have either a little space between shoe and hem or a nice big break of drapey fabric. What is even more key to me is the lack of a crease. It makes the look less polished, less like a business suit and more casual, relaxed.
