Would you wear: Drop pants?
I've seen drop-crotch pants cropping up lately in my sale alert emails, which can only mean that they are on the way out again. I first got an inkling of their return when Dior sprinkled them into the Dior Homme Fall 2007 line.
After that, I saw them occasionally on models in fashion shows, but never out in the wild. While I can appreciate Dior's attempt to rescue men from the clutches of skinny jeans, I have to say that two wrongs do not make it right for this perfectly good-looking man to look like he's wearing a sagging diaper.
Obviously, my answer to the question posed in this post's title is no, but I'm interested to know if any of you have dared to try this trend. Did you get any comments on your pants? What top or shoes did you pair with your parachute pants? And, most importantly, did you do the M.C. Hammer dance?
Curiously enough, there is even a sale on some Ella Moss drop pants today over at Gilt Fuse. Hurry, though. For reasons unbeknownst to me, they're selling out fast.
