Skinny jeans were finally driven out of the spring and summer menswear show.

In the past few years, we have seen skinny jeans disappearing from the show, even Hedi Slimane’s Celine is no longer the narrow profile we imagined. For a long time, tight pants have almost become a must-have item for men’s wardrobes, but the trend of the spring and summer show shows that the times are changing. While the classic rock styling will never really disappear, the current designers are trying to blend into a more relaxed silhouette. From retro wide-leg pants to classic straight jeans to loose overalls, men now have more funky options than in the past.

The following are the different types of wide-leg pants that are resurging in the spring and summer of 2019.


Wide leg pants

Wide-Leg Trousers


Wide-leg pants have successfully occupied the men’s wardrobe. Although the large silhouette is quite different from the ultra-tight pants that men have been wearing for years, this does not prevent them from embracing this retro style. Wide-leg pants were first popular in the swing era of the 1940s, and nowadays, such as Dries Van Noten or Margiela, which is famous for its experimental tailoring, have revived this style. Even the Los Angeles jeans brand JNCO is trying to revive this trend, but we don’t recommend re-wearing the jeans you love most in high school.

Baggy Pants


At the same time, some designers have refreshed the definition of wide-leg pants, which are reminiscent of the early wave pants style. Off-White launched a pair of ultra-loose jeans in the spring and summer of 2019, which is clearly enough for all 21st century skateboarding boys to drool. At the Kenzo show, the more relaxed ones were nylon trousers with bold jewel tones. In addition, Jacquemus has launched a pair of loose overalls from the Super Boy N*Sync wardrobe, which contrasts with its ultra-mini handbags, which are advertised in Fashion Week for their unimaginable mini size. A lot of headlines. Obviously, not everything is getting bigger.



Straight loose pants

Straight-Leg Slacks


The retro trend of the 1990s has been revived for a long time, which means that light-washed straight jeans have become the main item in the men’s show. Of course, this is not the jeans that your father loves to wear. Thanks to brands such as Levi’s, their presence has made this classic version of the jeans never disappear, but by 2019, designers are reinventing this retro style. During the short but iconic role of Raf Simons in Calvin Klein, the designer has always been a fan of straight trousers, and he has shown his vision of contemporary America with bold prints and bright colors. At the same time, Louis Vuitton launched a college-style straight khaki, while the New York brand Bode’s colorful stitching style is more retro.

Boot pants

Boot-Cut Jeans

Balenciaga 2019 early spring series

Whether it’s good or bad, the recent denim boom has helped the boots to return to the mainstream stage. Although the upper part of this type of jeans fits very well, it gradually widens from the knee to the ankle. This design provides plenty of room for cumbersome boots, and the style was originally inspired by the trousers worn by the sailors. Although your father may have been wearing this style of jeans for decades, we have actually seen this version have been on the show for nearly 20 years. But with the east wind of Demna Gvasalia, the pair of jeans seems to be ready to come back again. The Balenciaga creative director bravely brought the boot cut to 2019. In the early spring collection, we saw the pair of jeans with an oversized flannel shirt and a leather trench coat. This style is on the edge of norm-core, and we are ready to welcome it back.
