WIDE WOOL SWINGS – BAGGYS ARE BACK
just a few designers have shown wide trousers as soon as two years ago. well, now you can see them in almost every current menswear collection.
craig green is one of the pioneers who has been showing oversized trousers in his collections already for a while.
thomas maier tried to bring the trend back ten years ago, but maybe it was still too early.
when i grew up baggy pants where the only trousers you were allowed to wear, otherwise you would get beaten up in the skatepark ;-) i got my first one from homeboy – which was the go-to-brand back in those days. somehow there was more of a fashion culture relying on brands when i grew up. kids didn’t have the thrill to go for cheap fast fashion hauls to fill their bags at shops with no face and just copied styles. let’s bring a bit more slow fashion and appreciation for good design back!
i got these woolen joseph baggys on sale (still a good thing if you’re opting for quality pieces, but don’t want to spend a fortune). this pair is really comfy and still features a very sleek look, which i find quite important with baggy pants. also make sure to tuck in your shirt and pullover – this is also back again!
