Interested in learning a few ways how to cuff pants or jeans? Look no further. Here’s an experimental, lookbook-y type of video showcasing how to cuff your pants/jeans, 4 different ways.
First thing’s first, you want to make sure that your pants are either slim or skinny fit. There should be a nice taper down the leg. This will allow for a better looking finish with all four of the methods I’m going to cover.
HOW TO CUFF PANTS/JEANS | 4 WAYS
1. THE DOUBLE
The “Double” has been my go-to cuff for the longest time. You want to cuff your pants about an inch, more or less, depending on your preference. Once over and then again. It’s a tried and true method that provides an air of casualness to any getup. Feel free to make it as clean and crisp of a roll as you want, but it doesn’t have to be.
2. THE UPSIDE DOWN
I made this one up. I’m not even sure if you can call it a cuff. Instead of rolling on the outside, you roll on the inside. It’s a good way to shorten the length of your pants if you’ve yet to have them hemmed or if you simply refuse to get them tailored. Make sure that it’s the right type of pants. It probably wouldn’t look right with jeans, but in this case, I thought the wool trousers still looked pretty good after cuffing with the “Upside Down” technique. Try it out and see if it works for you.
3. THE FRESH PRINCE
Shout out to Big Willy Style for inspiring this next cuffing method. “Chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool…” I’m sure you can recite the rest by heart. The “Fresh Prince” is all about casual nonchalance. It’s rolling your pants as if you didn’t care. Just flip them up once and let them be, no fixing or fine-tuning. Effortless, cool.
4. THE PINROLL
A favorite among many guys and for good reason. The classic “Pinroll” is the most streamlined and sharp of the bunch. It looks great with sneakers and boots. The key is you have to be wearing tapered pants for it to work well. The pinroll is best with the tailored aesthetic. I’ll definitely be incorporating the pinroll into my spring and summer getups. I like to keep the cuff on the thinner side as it makes for a cleaner finish.
