Drop-crotch trousers. One thousand percent man-repellent, but I care not.
You crazy gal! Just beware the “polterwang” (from the Fug folks) ….
You are a cool fashion babe, and I am not!
Post an in-action picture some time – I’m dying to see what these look like in “real life”.
Those look damn comfy.
They look fabulous!
Jk. ; )
Do what you have to do. As I’ve said before, one of the most endearing things to me about Lucky was how every so often, people would be featured trying to make harem pants work. (Or some other insanity.) Some of them got pretty close. And above all, they weren’t boring.
I’ll try to see if I can learn to like these. It’s a fun mental exercise.
So, while I’m working on becoming more open-minded… may I ask, do you like these because of how they feel or because of how they look?
I am thinking of becoming a fashion therapist, so this is part of my research.
I love a little bit of fashion craziness.
I’d like to be open to these, but on Saturday, I wore a pair of leggings that apparently aren’t quite long enough in the rise. Every time I stood up, it felt like these pants look.
Gorgeous! I am a fan of harem pants. these re probably my faves: http://santafedrygoods.com/product/inaisce-sadhu-drop-crotch-fold-pant-in-black/
Those are office-appropriate harem pants.
Call me crazy… but I kinda like those!
I love them. My partner loves them. I have made a few pairs for him and he always gets asked about where he bought them. I always use suiting fabric or non-knit and I think it makes all the difference between chic and yoga hippie.
Photos? I am massively intrigued.
Nili Lotan is a goddress.
Here are my questions about drop-crotch pants…
1) what do they look like when you walk in them
2) what happens to all that excess crotch material when you sit down and, say, cross your legs
3) do they make your legs look shorter
One woman’s “insanity” is another woman’s “fabulous”.
Wondering how they would work with a little tire around the waist..
It’s been a busy holiday season what with my complete lack of self control and love of food….
I have a loose-ish v neck tshirt but also a tad fitted, in a skim the body way that I wear with my slouchy pants and a blazer with sleeves pushed up a little. it seems to work a-ok. I’ve packed on 20 pounds in a year. 🙁
I love nearly everything you feature…and it sometimes makes me a feel a bit nitwitty and single white female-esque.
I am thrilled to say that you have shared something I find just awful. I wouldn’t clean my garage in those.
I like my crotch just where it is.
I have a similar pair in wool by helmut lang. I wear them all the time with Rachel comey mars booties, dirty checkerboard vans and also strappy wedges. most of my clothes are man repelling. a good barometer of what is beautiful.
And now I realize my shoe collection is missing checkerboard Vans. Here I go…
and they get better when they get dirtier
Right on. In my estimation, a true GOACA doesn’t give two craps about attracting or repelling men – she dresses to please herself.
…or maybe she does still, but she isn’t basing her day-to-day sartorial choices on whether or not guys will or won’t like them.
I personally think they’re HOT!
Ewwwww! Nothing redeeming about them. Sorry, but so very, very unflattering in every way.
Who needs a man anyway!
Fly that man-repeller flag! So down on men these days. All you need is girlfriends!
Wear what pleases you.
I love you, though.
The pants are fine… who makes the shoes?
Forget the pants. I’m in love with the shoes!! Any idea who they are?
Same question here. Love the shoes!
shoes are maison martin margiela: http://totokaelo.com/maison-martin-margiela/solid-peeptoe-ankle-boot/navy/P1DC71/s58wp0068-sx9643-510
Isn’t it the men who say that we really dress to please other women?
if that is true, then you and these pants please me:)
and you live in one of the few cities where you can wear them with joy without a worry…
I love those pants!
“Excellently Slouchy,” to quote the master.
Well, they ARE Nili Lotan, so there is that. But I’d say you’ve reached fashion autonomy. Brava, Kim!
I have coveted the R13 Harem for a year, ever since I tried them on at Barney’s, but simply could not justify the $400 price tag on my meager preschool teacher salary. Might have to figure out a way to get them, now that I see you have a pair.
It could be worse…they could be gauchos.
Enjoy em 🙂 To each their own
Wow! You jumped in the deep end with both feet – meaning there are more and less extreme versions, but you went all the way. I love drop crotch pants once in a while, not because they’re comfy (which they are) but because they’re cool. I’m a thin size 2-4 and I gotta say, nothing makes me feel as skinny as a drop crotch pant. I always wear them with a snug top, tucked in. Sometimes you just have to dress for you.
I had a purple pair in the late 80s that I wore to rags. Someone–I wish I could remember who–called them my “seven-day shitters.” Sorry about the language, too poetic not to share.
I just laugh-snorted.
Also, it’s … Hammer time.
But, I think I may have talked myself so far out of these that I may be getting in… uh oh.
Lucky once quoted a woman who said she knew she had a good outfit when it puzzled her boyfriend. Something like that.
I once had a boyfriend who wanted me to wear fewer patterns and bright colors and more…brown. Those hours upon hours spent in REI with him is time I’ll never get back. The quote made me realize that he had no idea about fashion and I was silly to let him influence me. Now I wear what I want.
Wow. Wanted you to wear more brown? What an idiot.
(Ahem. Not that there is anything wrong with wearing brown … if that’s the mood one is in.)
Love them 100%
I actually like these.
I kind of love them in all their craziness. I think they have a very Zero Maria Cornejo vibe. Would love to see a pic of how you’ve styled them into an outfit.
I love them. Not a look for me though, I need to grow a few inches first. Still hoping…
Wow. $350 worth of ugly.
I feel like those work on women with long legs, or at least proportionately long legs. On me, with my long torso, I think they would be disastrous. So if you can wear them, more power to you!
I do think being chesty would also complicate things significantly. (Though if they are calling you, don’t let it stop you.)
