Should Khaki Chinos Be Cuffed?

Should they be cuffed, or not? That is the question of the day, and I seek to find a conclusion to this query. Ralph Lauren does not make chinos with cuffs unless they come with pleats. The same can be said for Brooks Brothers as well. Actually, there are only a few traditional clothing stores that produce khaki chinos that are unfinished. Orvis and J Crew come to mind, and I am sure others may think of a couple different stores but there are not many establishments. So which is it.....well, I prefer cuffed flat front chinos, but I do own several pair that are flat front with no cuff. Which is proper......I actually say both cuffed and un-cuffed flat front chinos are acceptable (I actually own one pair with pleats, and no cuff.......however they are not preferred).
