Genuine enquiry: Are turn-ups on trousers only the reserve of traditionalist dressers in the US nowadays? Or are they seen on others as well, for example, mixed with a casual shirt and trainers, as was quite common in the UK in the 70s and 80s?

I ask because I haven't seen a pair of trousers with turn-ups in a shop for years, in Sweden or the UK (on the odd occasion when I'm back in ol' blighty)
We're still ape-ing Eddie 8 cuff-wise but mostuvus are unaware. I personally wear Oxford bag-ish trou accumulated years ago and am awaiting their RTW return. It's about time for the pendulum to swing. Eleven (22) inch trouser ends with 2 inch cuffs. But most here may be closer to peg leg-ish '60s style Ivy @ 8 inches or less.
