To Cuff or Not to Cuff Your Jeans

Lately I’ve noticed guys cuff­ing or rolling their jeans. Some­times it works, some­times it doesn’t. Per­son­ally, I cuff mine or give it a skinny roll if they’re a bit long, oth­er­wise, I get em’ hemmed. Any­way, this phe­nom­e­non has picked up steam in the fash­ion indus­try and on the street by everyone’s favorite sar­to­ri­al­ist.

The thick, one fold cuff seems to be the trendy pick. I think it looks ok, but gar­ners too much atten­tion to your feet. Also, a thick cuff makes a man look shorter.

I pre­fer a shorter cuff and if I need to roll them up, go for a skinny roll, though, I think he rolled them a lit­tle too high. Show­ing ankle is bet­ter left to the ladies.

Then there’s John Tur­turro (always ter­rific in a Spike Lee or Coen film) who doesn’t seem to care and looks good doing it.

So I guess it really depends on what type of jeans your wear­ing, the length and cut but mostly who you are. Don’t fol­low the trends out there, but roll or cuff as needed. Neces­sity never fails, mak­ing your appear­ance nat­ural rather than forced. Here’s an exam­ple of a thick roll but it works because he’s trust­ing his own style.

Regard­less if you roll or cuff your jeans, it looks best over dressier type shoes instead of sneak­ers, unless your sport­ing chino’s.

    I am not a fan of cut­ting off jeans. Why pay money to destroy them. I always try to find the best deals on the web when I am shop­ping for clothes. As a mat­ter of fact I found some great deals on jeans here Jeans . Fall is approach­ing so I need to restock on a few pairs.

    How­ever a man chooses to wear his jeans is not up for discussion…if he wants to wear them cuffed or rolled above the ankle or just below the knee, who cares, This is Amer­ica and he should not be labeled because of how he chooses to wear his jeans. Life it too short to live it pleas­ing every­one else.
