Trouser Cuffs

Like many suits details such as  surgeon cuffs and the ticket pocket, cuffs were invented out of necessity and now have no purpose other than for style. In the olden days, when gentlemen had to walk through rain and mud, their pants would get all dirty. In an effort to salvage their trousers, they started to roll them up and hence forward it became fashionable to do so.

Cuffs can look good on any pant style and are dependent on personal style and sometimes body type.

(Please also note how well the brown Oxfords go with the grey suit!)
