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!

    What to wear on every kind of date

    It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today. On the other hand, they also didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the best selfie for their profile picture, or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.
