Vintage Baggy Jeans
In the early 90’s, baggy pants on young men were seen but they remained essentially a “underground” style worn by a few people on the cutting edge of fashion until hip-hop overtook grunge as the dominating music form among urban teens.
Young people now asked that jeans which had long been a staple of casual outfit be made as loose as possible with waistbands several sizes too large to expose the upper band of underwear. Baggy jeans were introduced by retailers such as Gap and Old Navy. Designers like Tommy Hilfiger designed a “urban prep” line based on a street look he saw where baggy denim was worn with a plain white button-up shirts.
The reason behind the popularity of baggy jeans differ. Some believe that hip-hop trend-setters chose the look to imitate the pants that inmates are given when they are imprisoned. According to this idea, sagging pants are due to the fact that prison inmates are not allowed to wear belts for fear of hanging themselves in their cells. Others claim that the trend for baggy jeans started with basketball players like Michael Jordan who grew tired of the National Basketball Association’s mandatory short shorts and began to wear longer, baggier shorts. Others still claim that baggy jeans originated in the skating and snowboarding communities where athletes required freedom of mobility while also wishing to stand out. The baggy jeans trend, whatever its origins had a major effect on the sportswear sector.
Levi’s Jeans which was late to produce baggy jeans had a 15% drop in sales between 1996 and 1998. In 2003, while hip-hop trends remained popular there were evidence that the trend was returning to form-fitting and low-rise boot cut jeans, or jeans that fit low on waist and flare out at the ankle. The difference between bell-bottom and wide-leg jeans is that bell-bottom jeans have a more hourglass figure due to the tightness around the thighs and knees, while the wide-leg jeans have a more triangle shape due to the gradual flare.
