I need balancing and 2" cuffs on them pants. No worries TweedyProf.
Or 1.75 inch. Ymmv.
@The Noodles, he's just kidding, you know. 2" is where it's at.
What about 2.5?
I most certainly am not! All my pants are cuffed at 1.75, but I am also only 5'10.
If you are 6 foot 5, sure.
I like 1.75...and this is what I have gone with for a long time...
But recently I've started venturing into Italian suits and these tailors seem to prefer a 5cm (2inch) cuff...so I have tried this and like it...
2.5 is too much. .
I agree - I'm 5'9" and I prefer 2" cuffs - more would be too much and less looks somehow dated to me.
Wouldn't the size of the cuffs be best determined by the size of the pocket flaps and lapels? Big cuffs with tiny lapels and pockets looks funny, and vice versa.
It's all about those two inches, yo.

...said no woman ever.
I'm talking about cuffs, y'all. Cuffs. Turnups. You know.
yes for lapels...but the reference was too Noodles' Formosa which not a skinny or ridiculously wide lapel...
I tried to do 2 inch cuffs, but my legs are just too short. It does not look properly balanced.
Not a fan of 2 inches, used to be but have settled on a more reasonable 1.75. I'm 6"2. I think 1.5 or smaller is dated but 1.75 is pretty good across the board height wise. I don't really buy the argument that big cuffs drape better, of cuffs in general drape better. At the end of the day, the weight of the trousers determines how it will drape.
Does anyone wear most of their pants with a plain hem but cuffs on the heavier fabrics? I feel like heavier fabrics dont look right without cuff
I didn't think of the cuffs affecting the drape. So 2" would be thicker and have more pull and thus creating a better drape. Is this correct?
I think the cuffs on mine are currently around 1.55"????
