Should men under 5'10 wear cuffs on their pants? Thanks!

If the most important thing you want from your trousers is for them to make you look as tall as possible, then no. If you like cuffs, then yes. Besides, 5' 10" is not short.

I find that making the inseam as short as you can possibly take it (I like it barely touching the shoes) has more of a lengthening effect than whether you cuff them or not. I cuff all my pants (2 inches) and with no or little break and I am 5'10. The one caveat is that I think this look only works with narrow leg trousers, cuffed full leg trousers ending above the shoe would look wrong.
