    Got my new casentino wool overcoat today. Still way to warm to wear it (thankfully), but I had to try it on.

    Thanks, Stitch. Here's a newb question. I have this wrong perception that cuffed pants is for old people (like my grandpa old). What is the SF consensus on cuffed pants?

    To cuff (or to turn-up) or not to cuff is purely a personal choice. There are some 'guidelines' - they are usually but not exclusively more congruent with pleats than flat fronts, and some wisdom suggests the weight of the cuff adds to the effect of the trouser legs hanging nicely, but don't listen to any prejudiced views of SF its up to you. I would guess that cuffs are probably more popular on here but I never wear them myself, as like you I associate them with old geezers!

    i regret every almost every pair of pants that i did not cuff. that is my perception. and i am not very tall. sometimes the height challenged feel that cuffs make then look shorter, and there is truth to that, but for the most part i think SF would say cuffs is the way to go.

    have a look at the pants of teh posters whos fits you really like, check if they have cuffs, and get back to me with how many of them are old grampas.

    Hardly any daylight left here, so a closeup will have to do. Wore the SC with light grey flannels.

    I wouldn't put it as bluntly as you put it but that's been my perception too.
    But still, this is something that I should look into. [​IMG]

    There is something slightly off about the fit of the pants around the opening. I don't know if cuffs would address it, but they might.

    i think they would help. the weight alone should be beneficial. but, aside from that, they really are personal preference. even though i regret not cuffing some of my pants, i have no reservations about wearing them just as much as my cuffed pants.

    As I stand and look down at where my pants meet the shoes, I see one fold. I wonder if I shouldn't see any folds and just a straight line.

    that is also a matter of personal preference. some people like no break at all, meaning a totally straight line, other like a little break, others like more. but a lot of break that turns into puddling is pretty much across the board not good. i personally prefer no break or maybe a little, but thats it.

    the break you have looks to me to fall in the acceptable range, and i bet when you are standing straight, not bent over to take a picture, it is even less. so its really up to you.

    either way, in your full pic the openings looked to be a bit off and that is why i recommended a cuff. i like the look of a cuff, and the added weight should help the pants to fall nicer and keep a nicer line.

    You see "break". A pretty full one in your case. People are going to jump in with their opinions on how much break (if any) you should have. It's all personal preference...I prefer a little more break than most on here.

    Thanks all for the feedback. The reason why I ask for some break is that one time I went with no break and noticed that the bottom of my pants were rocking back and forth and felt like...I was wearing the Three Stooges' pants.
