    Word. First time I can remember seeing SB cuffless.

    Question: You have mentioned before that all of your trousers have cuffs. Are cuffs ALWAYS better than no cuffs, personal preference, or can you imagine yourself either actively not getting them or not caring if they are there or not?

    Personally, I think cuffs on dress pants are indeed always better, and I have no plans of ever going cuffless. However, that is most definitely personal preference.

    As it relates to SBs fit, the fabric looks too floppy to me without cuffs. I think the weight of the cuff would certainly make them look better, regardless of my personal cuff crusade.

    Interesting. Based on my experience with tailors it always seems like there is a little more room for error in getting the length right when you go for cuffs. Not much, but a little. Still, I go without cuffs all the time.

    Due to the ability to easily angle the hem without cuffs, yes that is true. You can no break in front and cover the sock by the ankle, much harder to do that with cuffs, if its even possible at all.

    All the same, I think you can get damn close enough that its worth going for the cuff, since I think it looks better pretty much always.

    As I understand it, it is much easier to do that when the trousers are originally being made, as opposed to a tailor doing it after the fact.

    Fair Isle: Um, navy jacket, OCBD, knit tie? That's not traditional enough for you?
