When speaking of men's pants, I think it would be much more common to hear "to take up (let down) the cuff" than "to take up (let down) the hem". Almost all women's pants have hems, but almost all men's pants end in cuffs. Their hems are not nomally visible to the eye. One exception that comes to mind are bluejeans. Even bluejeans, of course, would not normally have cuffs unless they were temporary. In other words, the bottom of the pants would be turned up by hand to allow pants to be worn although the legs are too long for the user.
