The Controversial Cuff
I’ve long been an advocate for cuffing. I cuff the sleeves on most of my short sleeve button-up’s, I cuff most of my jeans depending on the shoe I’m wearing, sometimes I cuff my t-shirts, and recently, I’ve began cuffing trousers.
Now, I know this may not technically be acceptable, but in a world where cropped is the new “normal” pant length, I get tired of tailoristically (made up word) cropping all my pants and sometimes want something a little different. Plus, the fact that it isn’t a tailored cuff and is more of a casual jean cuff makes the trouser seem less, well, tailored and boring. But hey, improvising is pretty in right now, and re-purposing always makes for a cool and unique look.
I decided to make the look fairly monochromatic with the navy blue and paired my “cropped” trousers with a simple navy blue suede loafer (sold out, similar here and here) and a dark navy blue denim shirt (sold out, similar here and here), and was careful to make sure the pattern on the shirt wouldn’t be too much when mixed with the minimal pattern in the pants (sold out, similar here and here).
