I am saying that cuffed flannels can still look neat, especially with military hem if you suffer from a high instep like me biggrin.gif

Well, in that case, my day of fail continues right along!

No real reason other than it's my habit and the presence or absence of cuffs doesn't affect what I think of how someone else looks (except those stupid extra-wide cuffs the Pitti crowd was sporting for 15 minutes). I think I have two pairs of trousers where the tailor said the cloth was just too thick to take cuffs.

70-30 uncuffed cuffed. I also am a big fan of the military hem, probably for the same reason as jrd. All but one of my flannels are cuffed though. Don't know why I like flannels that way, I just do.

Personally I don't think flannel looks right without cuffs and a fair amount of break, i.e. with a rich and comfy effect, like a chunky sweater.

Is that a challenge?

Exactly the same here. To my eye my trousers seem unfinished without cuffs and I like the way the extra weight makes the them sit at the top of my shoe.

I believe this is the 1,832nd time Style Forum has taken up this topic.

Just 168 more until we get that knife set...

I keep hearing this weight argument, but why not just have the extra length folded inward?

it was more of a request, but you take it in whatever way motivates you post a fit.

I'm wearing flannels without cuffs today. They hang fine. But I prefer only a shiver of break and a slimmer trou, so it all fits together.

I like cuffs on others, just prefer the sleeker look for myself.

The no cuffs approach works well with your preferred choice of footwear, Doc.

Very Reevolving-esque, but I have to admit you have a point

It's really not about the extra weight. Consider a yard of cloth , 36" X 60", weighs 12 ounces and the cuff adds about 3.5" X 18" more cloth. It's more about the added body of 4 layers of folded cloth (cuff,trouser and hem) rather than extra weight

Wearing uncuffed flannel pants today, I have some cuffed pants but I usually go with very slight break and no cuffs. I don't really discriminate by fabric/weight.
