Is this a look that wouldnt look too akward? I find a slim, no break pant with a cuff looks great, but i cant recall seeing a no break look without a cuff

is there a general rule for cuff size with a no break, tapered pant? I have a few things i would like altered and i would like to give them a measurement

i think it looks good and is perfectly OK. cuffs and breaks have become things of personal preference lately. SF member GetSmart pulls off this look quite well, in some of his waywt posts, iirc. btw i find myself referring people with cuff/break questions to GS a lot...there has to be a reason he's on my mind so much

I've followed this route with most of my new trousers. I like them a lot!

I feel like I almost have to have no cuffs and no break because of my body type. I'm very short, so I feel that no cuffs and no break help elongate me. The lack of cuffs allows for a longer, uninterupted line and the lack of break prevents me from looking like I'm wearing pants that are too big for me.

Most importantly, I find that all of this just depends. It depends on the style of pants, the body of the wearer, and personal preference.

I often wear no break with no cuff. As was said, the pants must be slim cut otherwise it just looks awkward.
