Whether or not to have cuffs on your pants is truly a personal choice.
The fashion rule, however, is flat front dress pants should be worn with plain bottoms; pleated front dress pants should be worn with cuffs.
Cuffs provide a little extra weight at the bottom of one’s pant and serve to keep the pant on one’s shoe. If you go with cuffs, the size of the cuff should be proportionate to your height. Smaller cuffs for shorter guys; larger cuffs for taller guys. A good rule of thumb is 1 1/2″ for guys under 5′ 8″, 1 3/4″ for guys 5′ 9″ – 6′ 4″, 2″ for taller guys.
If you like the additional weight of the cuff, but prefer a plain bottom, ask for “heel guards”. A heel guard is an additional piece of fabric that is sewn into the back half of the bottom of one’s pant bottom to protect the pant from getting “pinched” by one’s shoe against the ground.
