I love the idea of these pants, especially when the wearer is walking- effortlessly alluring. But even though this guy looks comfortable and casual and great in these pants, I’m not sure they look better than a pair of relaxed-yet-tailored “classic” black trousers would. Yes, they’re different and fashion-forward, but does the silhouette really add anything here?
Perfection. You’ve gotten some really awesome shots lately of men lookin’ supremely stylish and casual. There’s nothing this guy could have done to improve on the look here. It’s perfect from the stubble to the Havaianas.
It is not so much the silhouette I object to with the droopy M.C Hammer pants you have photographed so far, but the quality of the pants themselves. They have all looked like stretched out and soiled gym/yoga pants. There have been very interesting pants playing with this silhouette featured by such designers as Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garcons, Lumen et Umbra, and others. The ones you have shown so far look like cheap running pants that the wearers have taken a poop in.
I love drop crotch pants in general, can look really cute on the right guy or girl. In Australia they started to get known as “poo-catchers” and i think that was the single most effective thing that stopped the trend before it properly got started… :/ Totally sucks. The post earlier with the girl in the purple drop crotch pants is soooo lovely. x
like the look, but if the guy wasn’t as good looking as he is, would there be as much reaction to the pictures? you can talk about fashion forward, but in terms of wearability, i reckon these pants don’t go beyond lounge wear.
I still have mixed feelings about this trend. I have a pair that I lounge around in… in the house. Just not brave enough yet to wear it outside. This just might not be the trend for me but I can admire it on others. Talk to me when it’s over 90 degree’s outside and I might just change my mind.
