Reader Question: Flat Front w/ Cuffs


Due to my build I find that flat front pants are more flattering. Since you typically only see cuffs on pleated pants, I’m at the point of buying my flat front pants longer and having the tailor create the cuffs. Is this a fashion faux pas?



Hey. Thanks for reading.

Not at all! I do it all the time. In fact, I only wear flat front pants, and most of my heavier weight pants have cuffs. For a cooler look, try a wider 2 - 2 1/4" cuff, and keep the pants short with little to no break.

Yours in style,
