As you may have heard, I recently had a new pair of Brooks Brothers trousers tailored to my usual specifications. Where the tailor sometimes ignores my request for large cuffs leaving me with 1.75" or even 1.50", this time I positively insisted on a 2" cuff. The image (at left) shows me verifying the tailor's handiwork in case I need to submit photographic evidence. As you know, big cuffs are more appropriate for taller chaps such as yours truly. Cuffs serve to anchor the trouser and keep the bottoms from flopping about or swinging in the breeze. Endowed with the proper cuffs, for once, one does feel rather sartorially blessed.
