    I think it all depends on the inseam.

    Stacks all the way! For one they create awesome fades if the denim is raw, and it's the most convenient way imo.

    I usually double cuff with boots and stack with sneakers

    I like the single cuff better then all others. When i cuff my jeans the indigo doesn't run onto the shoe and doesn't stain it.

    (Learned the hard way)


    Lightly duct taped?

    Depends on the jeans, I guess. Some shouldn't be cuffed and others allow you to do so if you wish.

    Always wanted to try double cuffing. Can never seem to pull off the look.

    I hate this, just as bad as people who tuck their shirt in right where the belt buckle is to show off their stylin' buckle, it's not 'cool'.

    I think the question depends a lot on the context, it's too ambiguous for me to answer with a poll. I love cuffed jeans in summer with loafers, boat shoes or light sneakers, but stacking is great for a casual natural look. I think hemming should be saved for straight leg/bootcut and dressy jeans, I plan on hemming a pair of black jeans I'll be buying in the next month as they border on the dressy side.

    I stack with normal jeans I cuff if the jeans are selvage.

    Always cuff as I do not care to get my jeans hemmed, and on certain days I like the inseam shorter / longer on other days. It depends on the shoes really.

    Nothing wrong with it but I simply do not like the look so my jeans aren't ever cuffed.

    I stack all my jeans, except my 5ep low down boot, which are hemmed, since I think boot cuts look horrible stacked.

    Fixed. Although, I am told that they do flatter certain body types. I just can't imagine them on myself. Or anyone else who isn't either slightly guido-ish or over the age of 40.

    Yah I'm not a big fan personally. I don't mind a slight boot with chunky boots though... though my hemmed 5eps are almost straight leg anyways.
