How Much Cuff?

I think we are all pretty much in agreement on how much shirt cuff to show under a jacket but ,as seen on this blog, the amount of jean cuff to show is still widely variable.

The amount shown here seems to work for me.

    A certain type of denim smob might add that you should only cuff jeans if they have a (shuttle loom) woven selvage line.

    Of course, that’d make them a complete wanker.

    Pat Reiley called, he said he wanted his hair style back.

    I do like the dark denim though.

    Just my 2 cents . . .

    If you don’t look at his head, I like the whole look. Love the dark denim, agree that that is the perfect amount of cuff showing for jeans and I like the boots. I think that amount of cuff on jeans is very masculine, not an easy thing to pull off when cuffing your jeans.

    I think 1/4″ is the ideal length for cuffs to peak out under a jacket, and the cuff on pants really depends on the shoes.

    When it comes to denim, throw out the playbook.

    I agree with alexandre. However, I don’t cuff because it only works on slim-legged jeans that tend to accentuate the non-slim nature of my torso.

    I am a cuffer. I only have one pair of jeans that I don’t cuff so obviously I feel that this wearer’s cuffs are perfect. That’s the size I wear mine, about 1.5-2″. And I agree that cuffs look better on slim or at least straightleg jeans. I like his overall look, it’s something I could have put on this morning…EXCEPT the hair. Thumbs down to the locks.
