A cuff is a layer of fabric at the lower edge of a garment’s sleeve (such as a shirt, coat, or jacket) at the wrist, or at the ankle end of a trouser leg.

Cuffs can be created by folding back the material or by sewing on a separate band of material, which may also be worn separately and attached with buttons or studs. Cuffs can feature an ornamental border, lace, or other trimmings. In the United States, “trouser cuffs” refer to the folded, finished bottoms of trouser legs. In the United Kingdom, this term is now sometimes used, but the traditional term for the turned-up trouser hem is “turnup.”
