    I recently bought an RLBL suit off the buy/sell thread, and before I get it tailored, should I cuff the pants or not? I've never been one to cuff flat-fronts, but I've seen a few members do so with RLBL suits. Thoughts?

    Whatever suits you. I don't.

    Save the cuffs for pleated pants.

    I prefer cuffs, but it'll also look fine if you don't cuff the pants.

    I never cuff anything, but it depends on your style. RLBL is a bit on the slim side, so wouldn't slimmish pants look better uncuffed?

    whatever you prefer. I personally dont cuff any pants. I am 5'8" and have short legs. So cuffs makes by legs look even shorter.

    Lways a cuff, plain bottoms are too casual for a suit.

    When I purchased/altered at the Polo Mansion the salesman/tailor both recommended cuff. I cuff everything. Just looks more finished to me. Keep in mind, if you cuff you can always swith to no cuff. Can't go the other way.
