Waist - a common fallacy is that if you make the waist as tight as possible, it'll squish your stomach in and make you look skinny. Wrong. It'll give you gas, keep you in constant pain, and make you look stupid when you unbutton your jacket. Just make sure that the waistline is comfortable and that you can always stick two fingers into the waist while you're wearing them. Also, don't hike your pants up too high.

Pleats - okay with or without. They are recommended for those of a fuller abdomen, while discouraged for those who are extremely thin.

Cuffs - these help the pants to hang properly by providing a little weight at the bottom. They look better on someone with long legs, so the shorter man should definitely avoid them. Everyone else should stick to a maximum 1" cuff for best effect.
