I'm Aaron Tucker and this is do you roll your pants in or out when cuffing. If you are cuffing your pants, you want to roll them out. That's pretty much the definition of a cuff. You have a lot of different options on how you want them cuffed, you can either do a really tapered cuff, you can take your pants, fold them over, roll them up tightly, create like that carrot leg silhouette or you can just roll your pants straight up. Decide what width or height of the cuff that you want depending on what type of shoes you are wearing, what the rest of your outfit is. I don't suggest rolling your pants in because that's like cheating a hem. If you do that it just doesn't look good, it doesn't look finished. You can take your pants and get them hemmed if necessary but there's not going to be any hemline if you roll them under. If there's a necessity for it, maybe your pants are way too long, maybe you are tucking your pants into the boot and you want a cleaner like less bunchy cuff, then fine, but if your cuff is going to be exposed, go ahead and roll them up.
