    I have never done cuffs. Can I get some guidance? I might just go with a slight break.

    2" cuffs at least I would say. Break is preferential but too much ankle is not a good thing.

    At least? I don't know about that. I know it's a preference thing but anything over 2" is uneccessary. I'm 6'3" and all of my cuffs are 1.75".... I believe gld203 and stitches do the same.

    Rudals, you might get lucky and not have to adjust the length. They only had the slightest break for me.

    Cuff size is of course largely a matter of personal preference, but it's worth taking the height of the individual into consideration.

    I'm 5'9", and to my eye 1.5 inches is best for me.

    Cheers,

    EliodA, I've seen your trousers and proportionally, they look perfectly fine. All I'm saying is that I would be hesitant to recommend anything over 2" to our friend RUDALS.

    I think 2" is perfect. 1.75" isn't bad by any means, I prefer more. I'll correct myself above and say at least 1.75". Less is too skimpy. I think if you're 6'3" you should give 2" cuffs a shot. I have them at 6'2" and want a bit more. I think the most I would ever go is 2.25 -2.50" though. Beyond that and it'll start to look comical.

    I agree with this.
