Ask the MB -- Cuffs

Ask the MB -- Cuffs
Q: I just picked up a new Boss suit with flat front pants. Before taking it to the tailor I was curious what the MB's opinion was on cuffing. Should one cuff only pleated pants or both pleated and flat front, and if so how much of a cuff should be put in place?

A: There aren't many cuffs around the MB offices (or pleats), but we're not opposed to them (like pleats). A couple of suggestions if you decide to go that route:

Leg Opening: Cuffs work best on either something dramatically wide or dramatically narrow (pictured).

Cuff Depth: Cuff it like it's not an accident. 2" absolute minimum.
