Men’s Dropped Crotch Pants
Dropped crotch pants are the single piece of trending style that has had a major impact on the look of menswear and a strong vote toward casual looks. The reason the trend is so important is because it was present in more high fashion men’s runway shows than any other single trend for Fall 2012.
A dropped crotch is created by having a shorter inseam but retaining the height of the waistline. Because of the difference in height there ended up being a very long crotch A.K.A., a dropped crotch. The extended crotch is not for everyone, tall models pull this look off the best and traditionally the drop crotch is worn in street styles on younger men defining more casual attire, but any frame can pull this trend off with confidence. The runway was filled with this casual inspired silhouette however daywear wasn’t the only genre of clothing that was rocking the trend, it was used in everything from street wear to ornate black tie tuxedos.
The looser crotches go well with (the also popular) embroidered slippers, slim belts, and ornate embroidered dinner jackets in velvet and other luxurious materials of Fall 2012. Go out and grab a pair of drop crotch pants and throw them on. But style with caution, wearing such a casual pant with a dressed up jacket is tough and can lead to disaster. However if the styling aspect of the comfortable pants is succeeded, then a replacement for denim is achieved and a new world style is won.
