Cuffs on a pinstripe suit? Only if the coat sleeves are cuffed.

It's called a heel guard - any competant tailor will know what you're talking about. I generally see them on the rear half of the pant cuff, allowing the front to break naturally over your shoes.Can you clarify where this stip goes please? Â I have a number of pants which came with it in the back pocket and tailors have been a bit clueless as to what it is and where it goes. Â Thanks.
No, it's a matter of preference. Â Cuffs do look better with pleats than they do on flat front trousers. Â And I think that flat front trousers with cuffs look more odd than pleated trousers without cuffs. Â But there is no hard and fast rule. Â After all, most formal trousers are pleated, and these never take cuffs. Â And it is not uncommon to see flat front corduroy or twill or tweed or flannel odd trousers with cuffs.I just bought a black suit with a stripe. the suit is pleated. I didn't take cuffs, is this a bad thing? Everyone here says they take cuffs when the trousers are pleated.
