Drop-crotch carrot pants by Cheap Monday: the horror!


We discussed the phenomenon that is the carrot-leg pant a couple of months ago, and most of you were of the opinion that this was just another name for the "mom jean" – an assessment that The Fashion Police largely agreed with.

Now it seems that Cheap Monday have decided to take things that little bit further, by adding a small, but noticeable, dropped crotch to the basic "mom jean" shape. We’ve no idea WHY they would do this: we’re of the opinion that if you absolutely MUST wear a dropped crotch on your pants, you may as well make it exaggerated enough that people will realise you’re wearing it like that on purpose, rather than just thinking either your pants don’t fit, or that you’re wearing some kind of diaper under them.

Which is pretty much what these ones look like, no?

    They might be designed for people who feel that their legs are too long and slim.

    I don’t think I’ll ever be able to erase the hideous image of these pants from my brain.
    Maybe they’re trying to present an innovative way to carry around a bumbag … on the INSIDE of your pants!

    Oh NO. The ONLY reason to own pants like these are if you’re a retiree that’s trying to hide a diaper.

    Are you SURE they just aren’t incredibly, inexcusably poorly-fitted?

    you may all be discussing how ugly they are, but imagine them with a versace label and an amazing top walking down a runway somewhere, no one would say a word.

    Wow. These pants have no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

    These pants are awful not only in concept but also in execution. The colour is sooooo WRONG, with the ability to wash anyone of any complexion out, and the fit is just awkward.
    They do remind me a little of 50s style pants that are really fitted and usually a creamy white but what they do to that look is criminal!
