Baggy Fit Jeans

Baggy Fit Jeans   
"Baggies" was a name given to a particular type of jean in the early 1980s in the United Kingdom. The jeans were designed to be loose fitting around the leg, with a tight zip or button around the ankle, and had a number of zips with pockets primarily down the front of the jean. Typically there may have been ten or more pockets on the front of the jeans. They would frequently been worn with another 1980s fashion accessory, the day-glo sock, which was a terry towelling sock typically coloured in bright yellow, pink, or light blue.

Before the popular 'baggy clothing' introduced by MC Hammer of the late '80s and early '90s, there was the dress style Baggies. This style of clothing is best symbolized as dress style clothing. The most fashionable representation of these type of outfits was the pants along with a dress shirt, a thin tie, a fancy blazer coat and dress shoes. The best example of this clothing and outfits were worn by the Minneapolis based band known as "The Time" (headed by frontman Morris Day).

Baggy pants, or as some people like to call them, puddle pants, have been on the rise for quite some time now, but it wasn't until they started popping up on every street style photographer-covered corner in New York, London, Milan, and Paris last fall that the trend became crystal clear.

Due to the nature of mass production in the fashion industry, baggy and loose-fitting jeans practically disappeared from the shelves seemingly overnight. And normal jeans were replaced with "skinny fit" and baggy jeans were replaced with "slim fit" and my face was replaced with an OMG expression!

Now that we're in 2020, though, the days of the skinny jean seem to be coming to an end. Even the top fashion houses now admit that baggy pants are the better option. They're more flattering, more comfortable, and offer a bigger canvas for flamboyant embellishments.
