Size up

Off-the-shoul­der jack­ets, ex­tra-long trousers and slouchy, shin-skim­ming jumpers. Ill-fit is the new fit

I get it. You’ve spent the past few years du­ti­fully search­ing for that dream pair of skinny jeans and the per­fectly tai­lored suit. It’s scary to say good­bye. But say good­bye you must, for the new sil­hou­ette is over­sized to the point of out­ra­geous, verg­ing on silly in its vo­lu­mi­nous­ness and, frankly, quite bril­liant. From the co­coon-like coats and slouch­ing over­sized macs that dripped off mod­els at Damir Doma to the baggy pants at Marni, au­tumn’s menswear of­fers a kooky med­i­ta­tion on pro­por­tions. These are clothes with a lit­tle—or a lot—more give and flow, clothes that say, “Hey, there’s room for two in here. Hop in!” And with menswear mae­stro Raf Si­mons hav­ing taken the helm at Calvin Klein, there’s bound to be fur­ther shake-ups to the sil­hou­ette in 2017. The ques­tion is, will he put baggy back on the agenda?
