To Cuff or Not to Cuff: 4 Styles to Look the Part

Your EVER BOOTS look good. But you can make them look even better with just a little bit of effort. Cuffing your pants can clean up your look and even make you seem taller. It’s all about textures and proportions. Any of these 4 styles help create a more tailored fit and add a bit of dimension to your overall look.


To cuff:

The simple cuff - It’s just like it sounds.


Using the size of your pants’ own hem line (roughly 1.5 in), begin rolling them up from the bottom. As a general rule of thumb, you’re going to want to cuff it at least 2 times. You can cuff it one more time depending on where you want the bottom of your pant to hit your shoe. Use this style for a fresher, cleaner look.

The pinroll- It takes a little bit of skill, but it’s definitely worth it.

Start by pinching the fabric around the bottom of your pants so it feels snug around your ankle. Fold the excess fabric back toward your heel and hold it down with your thumb. While holding the fabric in place, begin rolling up them up normally. Cuff it at least twice to hold it in place. Use this style for a more tailored look. It’s an easy way to dress up your boots.

Tip: The width of your cuffs should be proportional to your height. If you’re taller than 5’10” you can go with a 1.5 - 2 inch cuff. Otherwise stick to a 1.5 inch cuff.

Not to cuff:

The tuck- Clean, functional, and minimal effort

Stuff your pants into your shoes front to back. Easy as that. It’ll help keep your lower half from looking to bulky and also show off your boots. This works best with a slimmer pant, otherwise there’s too much to tuck. Use this style as a good way to protect yourself in cold weather or while hiking outdoors.

The stack- You don’t always have to roll your pants up to add some style to your look

Tuck your pants into the front of the boot, behind the tongue, and let the back fall wherever it would naturally. Be sure to pull your pants down so that any excess length ruffles or “stacks” near the bottom (hence the name). This works best with a pair of pants that taper below the knee. Use this style as a quick and easy shortcut to adding style to your look.
