^I don't recall you mentioning that you're an 87 year old overweight Italian man... so I'm REALLY having a tough time figuring out how these jeans are going to look "good."

Please post a pic for us!!!!

If the exterior side seams are swelled, do not cuff.

If not, cuff them.

God help you if it really is a denim, rather than denim-like.

They're wool/cotton and hence denim-like. Not actually denim. Plus they're black.

That - and pray for forgiveness

Pleated cuffed denim trousers - that's two too many adjectives

So, in actuality, they're quite unlike denim? I'm getting confused...

lol, they transcend description. They do resemble denim because they have a solid color but flecks of white just like denim. They also have a similar hand but that's where the similarities end.

Whoa, talk about misleading original posts! As they are not jeans, yes, I would certainly cuff them.
