My suits are pleated and cuffed, my trousers, which I wear with just a dress shirt and maybe sweater, and therefore less formally, are plain front and uncuffed.

 

Agreed but for those who don't do pleats (they are not flattering on some builds and they are flattering on others) they are not having both options.

Cuffs look great for some - but not for all.  The plain front and no-cuff thing is not that new or hip IMO.  It is decidedly more "fashionable" but this, in and of itself, doesn't make it a trend, anymore than the popularity of pleats in the 80s made pleats into only a trend.  Although the baggy and triple pleats was something else…

Agreed. I am 5'9" and almost never cuff pants (except for denim) as I think a 2" cuff on a dress pant looks quite heavy for my height

I agree with this and I am the same height. I have one pair of donegal tweed trousers that have a 1.75" cuff but that is the only pair.

you should try cuffs at either 1 1/4 or 1 1/2.

They were a special makeup for the Ludlow J. Crew store in Tribeca NYC. Jan 2013. One of the best, if not the best, Ravello LWB ever made, IMO.

I'm setting out to acquire a pair of Color 8 shell Tankers.  Obviously this shoe has been discussed repeatedly in this thread . . . I should have been taking notes . . . and the SF search function is what it is . . . so I figured I'd just ask:  Where have people gotten theirs?  The usual suspects (e.g., TSM and Alden SF) list them on their sites but are currently out either completely or of my size.  Anyplace else I should check out?  Last is unimportant, and for an interesting makeup I'm prepared to wait a while via pre-order or whatever - but I'd love to get a rundown of where I should be looking.

 

Of course, if this is thread-clogging, I would welcome PMs.  Thanks in advance!

Leffot and context clothing have semi regular preorders on Barrie, Leffot's having antique edge. Both with commando soles. You should try to get on their mailing lists. Be advised that the last pre-order for the Leffot Tankers sold out in less than an hour and some more recent pre-orders for popular and/or rare models have gone in minutes or even seconds -- you will have to be ready to pull the trigger immediately upon the order going live and possibly need some luck even then.

For trublance lasted tankers, try citishoes in NYC.

TSM has the aberdeen lasted NST boot on leather sole. A dressier, more refined version with a different feel altogether. Beautiful boot.

Gents - anyone aware of a retailer who carries a 6-eyelet chukka (TSM calls it an Ankle boot) in color 8. TSM appears to only carry it in black. Thanks.
