    Bills Khakis

    I have only recently discovered Bills Khakis (I know, I am way behind on this) and I love them. Do most gentlemen here choose cuffs for their Khakis? I just got two pairs tailored and did one with and one without. Also, does any one have a preference in the M1 style vs. the M2 STYLE?
