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.

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!

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days.
