How To Cuff Jeans With Boots
Many men need a primer on how to cuff jeans with boots. A poorly done cuff could turn your whole outfit into a serious fashion don't. There are a few simple steps to follow when you cuff jeans with boots.
Put your jeans on first. Choose a pair that is loose fitting from the crotch on down--don't make the mistake of trying to be "trendy" with a pair of tight body hugging jeans when you cuff jeans with boots because it will backfire big time.
- Pull on your boots. You can cuff jeans with cowboy boots, work boots, or casual Timberlands. Your choice.
Cuff jeans. Once your jeans and boots are on, fold the bottoms up about one to two inches to create the cuff. When you cuff jeans with boots as a man, one fold is enough--any more than that will look strange with the boots.
- Eye-ball the distance between your cuff and foot. Don't walk out of the house with "high-waters" on. The bottom of the cuff jeans should be no more than an inch away from the top of your foot. Preferably, the front of the cuff should lay on top of the boot and the back of the cuff should brush against the the back heel of the shoe.
- Iron the cuff jeans if you want. As an alternative to cuffing the jeans while they're on you can fold the bottom cuff while they're off, then use an iron to create a firmer crease. Don't get carried away though--just run the iron over the edge of the fold in the cuff of the jeans for a few seconds. If you let the iron set too long you may never get rid of the cuff line.
