I don't love em as I feel they are mad busy even though I have a Lawrence jacket. However I do like talking shit on minimalism.

That’s why you should just cuff jeans!

Seriously, though, sorry.
I do cuff them, still. It's just that they all start at 36" inseams, when I just want them around 33" to 34" so my cuff rolls are less fat.

Jeans only get hemmed by denim folk, not your regular tailor, no matter how good they are. They always screw it up. Send to that place Derick recommended in PTO not too long ago, which I recently did myself on a pair of Orslows and worked out great, or to SE. They know what they’re doing. I like them hemmed to where I can do a single cuff if I want for loagers or sandals, or leave longer for boots.
