    Introducing the Baggy-Flared Fit, the Next Big Thing in Pants


    For Dior Men’s spring collection, designer Kim Jones turned to a somewhat unexpected collaborator: Travis Scott. Over the last few years, Scott has emerged as a modern day marketing savant (though he’s loathe to use the term) stamping his Cactus Jack logo on everything from McDonald’s happy meals to limited-edition boxes of Reese’s Puffs. He’s also evolved into a veritable force in the menswear space, working with Nike on some of the most coveted sneakers in the game, and using his every courtside appearance as an opportunity to flex his fashion chops. The joint effort with Dior might’ve been surprising, but it made perfect sense.

    Despite all the spectacle, in the weeks following the show your pals at GQ couldn’t stop dreaming about one of its more quotidian elements: the collection’s pants, an assortment that emphasized a brand new shape inspired by Scott himself. For spring 2022, Kim Jones and the reigning King of the Youth cooked up an eye-grabbing pant silhouette we’re calling the baggy-flared—a style that sits relatively low on the waist and slim through the thigh but flares out subtly by the leg, pooling gently over the shoe and stopping short just centimeters from the ground.

    At the Dior show, they were often sleek and elegant, sharply-tailored numbers that looked like dress pants the owner opted to leave unfinished instead of hauling to the tailor for a hem. But Jones and co. aren’t the only ones pushing the style. It’s a silhouette Virgil Abloh’s been exploring too, in his own wardrobe and via his role as artistic director of Louis Vuitton menswear. No less prominent a youth whisperer than Raf Simons has taken to championing the silhouette as well. Gallery Dept.’s cult-loved baggy-flared jeans have become a mainstay of the NBA tunnel and any event the Migos are apt to show up to since Josue Thomas founded the label in 2017. Even Mike Amiri, the Prince of Skinny Jeans himself, put the kibosh on his trademark circulation-crushing slacks with a collection that placed baggy-flared pants front and center.

    To be clear, these aren’t your standard run-of-the-mill flares. They’re not boot cut jeans or full-on bell-bottoms. (Though, yes, those are back too!) The pants we’re talking about here are long, languorous, and less dramatically flared than their counterparts, the logical convergence of two particularly en vogue pant styles that make for a pretty organic transition for anybody already used to walking on the slouchier side. 

    To harness the baggy-flared’s riot-inducing power, wear them the same way you would a relaxed pair of jeans, i.e. anchored by a more substantial shoe that won’t get lost in the excess fabric. Scott, for his part, has been pairing them with a yet-unreleased chunky sneaker Dior debuted on the runway, but your cooked Jordans will do just fine. Then, all you need to do is swagger forth with the confidence of a stadium-packing rock star—or at least a multimillion-dollar rap mogul with a penchant for quarter-pounders with bacon.
