Would You Wear Drop-crotch Jeans?

By Kim Anne Jan 19, 2012 5:16PM

Some of us are terrified of skinny jeans (will they fit today, will they not?), others shy away from the dreaded ill-fitting mom jeans (shouldn't we all) and the rest of us just can't get into this whole jegging phenomenon. But we're here to inform you that the trend of strange denim styles is not ending anytime soon.

If anything, bizarre denim is on the rise. Exhibit A: The new and albeit very confusing concept of drop-crotch jeans. 

Yes, someone over in the design world decided it was time to take denim to a whole new (and much saggier) level. The concept is being brought to you by Oak NYC, who has created a pair of pants called the Indigo Skinny Jean with an "extra low, dropped crotch," leaving you with the added benefit of not having to choose between baggy pants and skinny jeans--or something like that.

And, you're in luck--because now you can get them for less. It comes as no surprise that the jeans, which originally retailed for $158, are now on sale for $79. Get 'em while they last, ladies (or not).

That has got to be the stupidest idea to come along since the guy who wears his pants so low and big that he has to pull his pants up ever other step he takes. Looks like they filled their pants with grown up poop and that is a very discussing thought and to look at. All the stars or designers who wear them can rant and say what ever they like. They still look like the guy sh*t his pants.

Um, as a 6 ft. tall girl, this has been a PROBLEM for me with nylons AND certain styles my whole life.. NOT FASHION!!!  since when is it a "style" to look like you got a load in ur pants????  To me, it means that the **** doesn't FIT!!!!!!!

Couldn't you just **** the pants you already own and achieve this same look?

I think 'ill-fitting mom jeans' would be a glamorous alternative. 


With our aging population, though, I could see some hot 90-year-old loving the fit for her colostomy bag, as she shuffles down the hall in the retirement home.

If the date were 4/1 I would think that this whole story and idea about drop crotch jeans was an April Fools gag.  Could a fashion idea get any more stupid?  Contest over!  The winner for The Most Stupid Fashion Idea is OAK NYC for drop crotch jeans!

    10 of the sexiest denim campaigns of all time

    Have you ever noticed that denim ads are some of the sexiest? And most memorable? We can’t tell you how many of the people featured on our site, jeanstories.com, swoon as they reminisce about the first time they watched the 1985 Levis’s 501s “Laundrette” TV spot featuring the handsome Nick Kamen—who ended up , ahem, sans jeans. As for print ads, think Guess, Calvin Klein … not only sexy, but envelope-pushing and groundbreaking. If concerned mothers of America are writing angry letters to their local newspapers about the boob-baring models of your campaign, you, as a jeans brand, know you’ve done something right.

    Fall shopping, decoded: How to get the most from every budget

    Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.

    Cool collective: Fall’s best products

    Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?

    12 iconic beauties who make the case for the cat eye

    Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.
