Don't scuff your cuffs

I have a 31" inseam. That's a fairly common length, and used to be, you could buy trousers off the rack with a 31" inseam. But no more. Nowadays, everything is in even numbers. Which means, if you buy a pair of pants with a 30" inseam, your socks are showing; if you buy a pair with a 32" inseam, you're treading on the hem of your pant legs as you walk. I buy the 32" inseams these days, since with shoes on, the cuffs don't drag the ground. But who wants to wear shoes all the time indoors?

Deanne noted, without irony, that the other option is to have someone hem up the cuffs of your pants. I refrained from asking if she would do that, since I already knew the answer.
