I always have a cuff, whether they're levi's or some selvedge denim... That whole 'stacking' thing looks retarded and sloppy to me.

I cuff occasionally, but I mostly just let them stack.

A small cuff can totally change a look. It's nice to have another texture/color

Double rolled cuff about 1- 1.5 inches.
Slevedge demands to be shown off!

Stacking is okay too.

What do you folks think of cuffing and stacking?

Late pass: I cuff inside a sizeable amount to 28 inches ( I'm 5" 7' ) then cuff on the outside 1 inch. Double cuff outside if it's not staying.

I never cuff. Pinroll my straights sometimes, selvage or not if it looks good with my outfit that day.
No reason to cuff skinnies unless you are retarded jollie.

no cuffs. stacking. makes the jeans look more natural. cuffs look "forced"

Really depends on each pair. It's only when I realize how bad the stacking is on some pairs do I end up cuffing. If not, things start looking unproportional like gundam legs.

Cuffs are dope, but only if they're done right. That is, it generally looks best to double cuff shorter inseams (i.e. 32" or 34"). It looks nice and provides a clean straighter leg effect without stacks.

That said, stacks are and will always be straight dope, but like cuffs they have to be done right. Sammies and iron hearts are meant to stack, and they look fucking beautiful when they do; I personally think it's foolish to hem those jeans.

I have a pair of Sammies and Denime's so I have jeans that I can cuff and jeans I can stack. The type of shoe is the biggest factor in cuffing for me though; moccasin-type shoes and low tops look great with stacks, and boots and nicer shoes look best with cuffs. That's just my 2 cents, though.

I only cuff if there are too many stacks. OD stacks never look good.

when i wear some low shoes i usually do slightly less than an inch for cuffing, because my jeans are a bit too long on me to look okay uncuffed because of some sloppy stacks.
