    I don't really care for a single cuff. Usually if something is long enough to cuff on me it probably is going to get double cuffed. I feel the double cuff is a slightly cleaner looking cuff.

    double cuff or single?

    Double for a cleaner look. I start with single cuffing to get the right length and then depending on how tall I want the cuff, I fold the hem back inside. With my 2.75" cuff, just the hem itself is folded in and ironed.

    Ok, so i feel like an idiot asking this, but I'm not exactly sure what you guys mean by "stacking". Can any one explain this to me?[​IMG]

    Thanks

    I would never cuff skinny jeans or 501s but I think it works pretty well with slim fit/well cut jeans as long as you don't fold it too much.

    I borrowed this picture. It's Kodiak, in case you didn't know.

    See where the jeans meets the shoes? The denim "stacks" on top of each layer due to the long inseam.

    Single, wide cuff on jeans where you have something to show. The pbj AI or a pair of kmw AWA

    Big thick meaty cuffs.

    Depends on the jean. I've been wearing a lot of slim straight legs, and cuff a lot while wearing boots. My skinnies get stacked.

    Cuff mine since I don't want to get them tailored yet.

    I think that cuffing is good for looser fits, but not so good for slimmer. Personally, I cuff those with hems over 9" (oni, ald, samurai) but not the slimmer (apc, 501stf)

    I usually stack, and cuff occasionally. Depends on the outfit. Always double cuff when I do.
