The return of bell-bottoms and flare pants is on the horizon for women, allowing ankles to breathe once again. But, for men, there is no sign of loosening pants. Calvin Klein global creative director Kevin Carrigan says men want them. “Men are really comfortable with a slim silhouette now,” he told WWD at the showing of the fall collection for the label this week. That’s why he designed the collection with an assortment of tight-fitting men’s pants — stretchy, sleek, and tight. Carrigan designed one pair in particular, the X Jean, to enhance a man’s “profile.” You know what that means.
