How to cuff trousers

How to show off your kicks.

When you're aiming for a sharp look, sagging trouser cuffs just won't cut it. Rolled up jeans or chinos create a cool silhouette and put your shoes or trainers centre stage. 

Cuffing your trousers works best with jeans and chinos especially straight legged, slim or tapered fits. Done right, it's one those quick style tweaks that every guy should know. 

The best thing about a good trousers cuff? They give a chance opportunity to show off your foot candy. Perfect if you're a sneakerhead or just happen to be rocking a great pair of socks.
