with my tailoring bills i have no wish to add to them by having cuffs put on my trousers.  i also don't care for the look, which makes my being cheap convenient in this case.

I favor no cuffs with half-break for the most part. I'm going with 2in cuffs next time just to change it up. Seems pointless to be dogmatic--more fun to have different styles. For example, I recently bought some trousers with double pleats which I've never worn in my life (at least as far as I can remember anyway).

...no cuff ever. Sometimes, the tall cuffs look alright, but in general, I'm not a fan of cuffs.

I like 1.5" cuffs on my trousers. I like the look, it greatly improves drape and the line of the trousers, and it cuts down on them hanging on my socks when I stand up.

I used to wear high socks, but my large calves (I raced bicycles) always hang up on lighter fabrics.  Wished I had cuffs on a few narrow legs and light fabrics to hold them down.  1.5 is good.  2 inches is daring.

I have cuffs only on my flannel trousers. It might seem counter-intuitive to cuff only the heavier-weight fabrics, but I think the heavier fabric pants looks better with something to anchor them

I agree, it depends on a lot of factors like fabric, formaility out trousers, etc.

In general I like to cuff my suit trousers and leave jeans/chinos/odd trousers uncuffed unless the odd trousers are the kind that would always look better with a sports coat/blazer, like grey worsted wool trousers.. That probably is the opposite of conventional wisdom.
