If you go over to AskAndy there's a 10% discount code for Herring Shoes which is applicable on their Alfred Sargent range.

Just got my first 3-4 pairs of flannels and I like the cuff look.

What should be the height of the cuffs (2 inch)?

Here are a few details:

5 foot 10
Legs slightly long for my height
29 inch inseam (if that makes sense)

1.75 inches ought to work. I am barely 6ft, and that is what I go with when I go cuffs

Around 1.75" is common. Some people prefer the look of 2" cuffs.

Anything much under 1.5" will strike many as being too narrow. Significantly more than 2.25" may well seem excessively wide.

Unless one has freakishly long or short legs (which you don't), using the above as a guideline should suffice. Pick some width which appeals to you, and never worry about it again. It's one of those clothing details to which one oughtn't devote too much concern. Sort of how there seems something wrong to me about fretting for several minutes over how a pocket square is arranged in one's pocket, or the lacing pattern of one's shoes.

+1

 

IMHO 1.75 looks really nice without drawing attention to it (of course considering height to some extent).

 

 

I go with 2" and I must say, I have heard comments about it several times, nothing really bad, but I don't like explaining my style decisions to people wearing short-sleeved polyester shirts with suits and square toed plastic shoes - if you get the picture here I am trying to draw.....

Yeah sorry, maybe too generic. I'm looking for a light grey rhomb pattern coat. I'll search for a picture and reply back to this thread

I have an overcoat with a half belt on the back, but when I wear it the belt ends up looking droopy instead of tightly cinched.  Is that something a tailor can fix?

I have 2 inch cuffs on my flannel Suitsupply Jorts. I think it works best with narrow trousers with a minimal break.

I have a pair of chinos which are perfect lenght when worn with sneakers but when worn with loafers they are too short similar to this https://aos-articlesofstylel.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/84.jpg
What's your opinion? The pants are not shortened yet and as they are, they are perfect lenght with the loafers I own, but way too long with chinos, chukkas, etc.

Either have the belt shortened  or have a tack stitch placed at the top of the belt.
