Wide-leg jeans have become one of the top selling denim styles in the last months. According to what sales professionals are telling us, and also by what we are actually seeing out there on the streets, the wide-leg is an absolute must do right now. And not going anywhere soon.
Let us also point out that the term wide-leg is quite “versatile” these days. The fit can be anywhere in between a wider straight leg and a – what we used to previously call – culottes, with any length inseam. You can do cropped or full length, it’s totally up to your personal preference.
If you want to do cool and edgy, pair your wide-legs with an oversized and chunky sweater. We are absolutely doing cashmere sweaters this fall and winter. We’re doing the men’s for a real oversized fit, like the Mott & Bow classic V-neck, tested and approved by yours truly and also the recycled cashmere sweaters from AE77, which are unisex.
