Relax, they're just pants!

Recently my ongoing browse on eBay (the story of which will be told on the next post) yields a pair of thai fisherman pants which immediately reminds me of the resurrected harem pants trend. I have not seen a lot of guys donning this relaxed silhouette, but I'm instantly reminded of these three images from the blogosphere. The first one is Steve from one of my favorite menswear blogs Style Salvage, who "steal's" the H&M x CdG drop crotch pants from his girlfriend Susie and styled them quite magnificently with a grey cardigan and a wicked pair of black boots. The next image from The Sartorialist shows a guy wearing the drop crotch pants without giving in to its feminine nature. Last but not least I really admire Yamamoto's Fall 2009 collection with his signature all-black ensembles and the ever lasting relax fit of the clothes which inspires me for a nice outfit combo.

Despite being weary of the public's reaction I decided to debut the pants at the Volgames Dinner. Little that I know I attracted some unwanted attention all the way from the bus station to the venue itself. And this one fellow Malaysian, of many people, even gave me a really freaked out head-to-toe gaze as if I just let a poisonous fart into his mouth. The usual gawk and stare affair is a given though, and I gradually became more comfortable and confident with my outfit that night - these are a pair of extra loose pants afterall!
