1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I need to have a couple of my suit pants cuffed like this. Cheap and easy way to change things up (if I have enough fabric). Oh, as others have mentioned, great shoes!

    spoo was mr. no cuff before he anticipated the bad influence from waywt voices(made in jest)

    just be careful with the balance between shoe size and cuff height.

    joking aside, I don't think the size of a cuff has anything to do with the size of the shoe, but rather with the length of the inseam. traditionally you go with 1.25"-1.5" cuffs. If you are really tall even 2" might look good. I'd stay completely away from cuffs if my inseam was below 30" since cuffs usually let your legs appear shorter.

    From my experience, length of shoe, size of cuff, how much break (or no break), and also leg opening all factor in. the most I can really pull off is 1.75" since I wear UK6. Had a suit with that amount of cuff before and it looked good.

    Thank you!


    This is correct, I never EVER wanted cuffs. I tried it, I liked it. What can I say?


    Preemptively, 9.5 and 2".
