Trousers go baggy as Paris men's fashion gets supersized

Models present creations by OAMC during the men's Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016/2017 collection, on January 20, 2016, in ParisAs stock markets tumble and economists talk of more tightening of belts, fashion has gone supersized, with Paris catwalks overflowing Wednesday with outsized overcoats and baggy trousers. If the first day of the menswear catwalks shows is anything to go by, men will be flapping around in too-long trousers and enormous ankle-length coats when the new autumn-winter designs hit the shops in six months’ time. Most of the models in Off-White’s show looked as if they had borrowed their big brother’s clothes or were auditioning for a remake of the video of British ska band Madness’ 1980 hit “Baggy Trousers”.
