I think the most I've ever gotten is 1.5" ! Why do you figure 2" ?
Kind of became a standard cuff height a decade or so ago here on Styleforum. To be exact, 5cm.
I'm not sure of its origin but I'm presuming it's Italian because Italians like to be extra in all that they do, specifically in how they dress.

Got mine yesterday and wore today, nice roll.

Would you be kind enough to provide picture with a blazer and another one with open collar? Can be great to grab interest;)
Do you have any pics of it with open collar?

Unfortunately none of those pictures are mine man, those are all from Billax's post here.

It that the spread length you quoted there or the point length?

We're working on a 3 1/4" spread BD. Close to old BB style.
Spread, I got them from this post.


Awesome, that's got me excited, that's exactly what I was thinking of!

Here is an old, blurry photo I have of narrow trousers and 2" cuffs.

I don't think it matters a whole lot. I've cuffs from 1.25" to 2". As long as it's inside that range, it looks good.

Interesting discussion on the cuff size, I always go 2 inches on all my trousers ( but I don’t cuff all my trousers).. these are the medium brown cotton linen with 2 inch cuffs

Those LHS tho.

(I also cuffed my cotton/linen trousers @ 2", but generally do not cuff cotton chinos.)

Are there any plans for RTW S&M evening jackets? I already have a full tuxedo, but would love to own a new jacket. I remember this custom piece that was posted on Instagram and would love to see something like this:

I haven't been bold enough to do 2", so I usually split the difference and do 1.75
this^
I feel too young to go to 2", 1.75" looks great, and 1.5" looks kind of wimpy on me. But for the 2" it's more of me not feeling bold enough to rock some very classic styles that more mature guys can. Originally I saw some person's Instagram or blog post, who's style I loved, and they said they get 1.75" and I wanted to copy them. When I took my suits to the tailor I had him show me some other pants that he had done at 1.5, 1.75, and 2 and that's how I figured out what I wanted. When I got the suits back I knew I made the right choice. But I'd definitely recommend sticking in the 1.75 - 2", just look at examples of both and pick what works best for you.
