Whatever you do don't get gigantic "style forum cuffs".

As with the picture of the Duke, 2.5"+ cuffs are not new. Here's a pic from 1947.

I must reiterate that it was never a rule. Pleats without cuffs is classic for formal trousers. Flat front with cuffs is an Ivy League staple. Pleats and cuffs evolved separately and for entirely different reasons. They are unrelated. Period.

Yes I know they are completely unrelated. That is why I italicized the word "rule", and also used the verb "assumed".

It is customary to get plain bottoms with flat front pants.

Sometimes I cuff flat fronts and sometimes I don't. It primarily depends on two factors:

1) Do I have pants in similar colors/textures with or without cuffs at this point.

2) What my mood is at the tailor when I actually decide.

Regardless, I don't think it's a really big deal either way. People should do what they want.
