Thoughts on drop crotch pants
Have been interested in the harem pants thing for a while, haven't seen too many guys rocking them though.

They have been rocking more the drop crotch trackies, have seen a few guys with these one around town.

What do you think of these?

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/UniSex-MC-Hammer-Mod-Drop-Crotch-Harem-Sweat-Pants-S-M-/270572877544?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&va r=&hash=item84b6e4545b

Worth it for a guy like myself to get them?

I like harem pants, also for men. Personally I don't like them in sweatpants material, it makes them a bit too sloppy for me. I have them in a grey wool blend and in light blue denim the dropped crotch isn't as low as in the mentioned link, but more like half way my upper leg.

You can always order one and return if it doesn't turn out right for you.

Just purchased a grey pair via Ebay, only ended up costing all up just over $37 Australian factoring in postage as well.

Next on the list is a black pair I think, will wait until the grey pair first to see what they are like.

Do you still think the dropped crotch still looks alright though?

I've seen a few guys with these too, I don't like them. I've also seen them in denim, which look so uncomfortable.
Plus I don't think I've seen anyone walking in the drop crotch jean versions properly. They look ridiculous, in my honest opinion.

I think it all depends on how low the crotch is, somewhere between the knees is far too low for me. It gives a very strange and unflattering silhouette. The ones I own have only a slightly lowered crotch like I mentioned, and I think that helps. It gives a different silhoutte, but is a bit more flattering.
And sometimes you just care about how flattering things are .

(crotch is an absolute horrible word after typing it a few times btw )

Ended up ordering a grey pair, couldn't help myself.

Want to get another coloured pair soon.

Any tips on what to style/wear them with?

I like them, especially on men. I've got two pairs of harems but the crotch isn't all that low. I think there's a lot of ways to wear them but you have to have the confidence and creativity to be able to pull them off.

I really like them with trainers. Or with heeled boots on girls.

They definitely take confidence! I have worn them numerous times. But all of mine don't have the MC Hammer low crotch!
