The new issue of GQ shows severall young guys wearing slacks with very wide cuffs by today's general standards. Is this catching on? They look like at least 1 1/2", as men wore, say, 75 years ago. Flusser shows these cuffs in his photos from perhaps the 1930s, and they are also shown in the Brooks Brothers history book. A salesgirl in Macy's the other evening said "cuffs are out of style." I just think to stay they go in and out regularly, as do pleats. She said she doesn't like the latter - they make someone look heavier. Nothing new or original there.
