When: Circa 1984

Stop, drop, and roll. The Beastie Boys had a mean cuff game in the 1980s. If your cuff game was proper, your pants would taper at the ankle with a tight hem. Cuffed jeans can still be seen today. An easy way to shorten long jeans, a sweet cuff (whether single, ragga, or tight roll) is a hell of a lot cheaper than getting your jeans hemmed.
