Recently purchased a Burberry suit with single pleated pants. Jacket has a double vent. Opinions needed whether to cuff or not?

Thanks

It's a matter of preference. Generally, all pleats should be cuffed. But if you're going for a more streamlined clean look, you can still get a way with no cuffs on single pleats. A few of my single pleated pants are uncuffed, quite like the look.

no cuff... a single pleat is a gray area and if you are younger and lean toward a more modern look with the fit of your suit and your selection of shirts and ties, go with no cuff. Pat Bateman sported the "no cuff" with single pleats in American Psycho

Previously, I was a non-cuffer...but I have seen the light!

Cuff, no question. In fact I'd get a slightly wider cuff if you have some height.

It really is a matter of preference. On all my pleated trousers, I have cuffs.

If you do get cuffs, you can always have them removed later. The opposite is not so possible.

I have noticed the recent trend in the US fashion industry is no cuffs.
