So we assume you have read about our previous articles The Denim 101 and The Types of Fades, right? Thank you for keeping up with us until now. We will move from the basic stuff to a more advanced technique that can also be your reference to maximize the looks from your jeans, which is cuffing and stacking. The words cuff and stack are often heard in conversations among denim aficionados. That is why we will share further information about stack and cuff, the right way to do it, kinds of footwears that looks good with it, as well as the pros and cons.
First thing first, to be able to apply all the methods below, we really recommend you to keep the length of your jeans to be a bit longer than your legs, so when you wear the jeans it will cover your ankles. You can easily stack the jeans or apply a variety of cuff to get different looks from each cuffing technique with this length.
Cuff is a fold on the leg opening as an attempt to get the length we desire without having to hem it. Cuffing is often done to manipulate the length of the jeans and also to show the selvedge line or the chainstitch on the leg opening, things that denim aficionados can be proud about. There are some variations to cuff, such as:
Faux Single Cuff
Another Faux Single Cuff
So the next time you buy a brand new pair of jeans and you feel the jeans is too long for you, do not hem it straight away. Try all these methods first, combine it with your footwear collection, find the right one for you and voila: you can produce different look for every combination.
