Yeah... you need to be atleast 6' to full off the drop waist


Blogger ricola said ... (9:34 PM) : 

I love it!!!


Anonymous tihawkins said ... (9:41 PM) : 

of all the "drop crotch" shots you have shown, THIS is the shot that inspires me the most. the ease, fit and comfort here finally transfers into style.


Blogger pablo said ... (9:49 PM) : 

i want a pair of those!


Blogger Val said ... (9:51 PM) : 

This is so effortlessly cool. Makes me want to wear drop crotch/harem pants.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:51 PM) : 

Holy hotitude! Who cares about the *pants* in this photo?? (-:


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:53 PM) : 

I like these drop-crotch pants. Both for men and women. And the more people don't understand them, the more I like 'em! Damn, I'm getting these! Cause I love the ''non-understanding look'' of people :)



Blogger Michelle at Boulderneigh said ... (9:53 PM) : 

Totally cute guy; totally awful pants.


Anonymous Lissa said ... (10:00 PM) : 

What a style!!!!!!
Love, love, love it!

I wanna them both! the pants and the man!

I just love Rio

!! que onda con eses pantalones?! Jaja I love them!!

and just like your previous sexy brasilero, this man has just the right amount of beard!! finally, the brasileros have figured out facial hair!!


Anonymous Ben said ... (10:33 PM) : 

I love the idea of these pants, especially when the wearer is walking- effortlessly alluring. But even though this guy looks comfortable and casual and great in these pants, I'm not sure they look better than a pair of relaxed-yet-tailored "classic" black trousers would. Yes, they're different and fashion-forward, but does the silhouette really add anything here?


Blogger Laura said ... (10:42 PM) : 

This oozes sexiness.. the texture of the pants, the slouchy shirt, the thong sandals, the man......


Blogger Lemming Lime said ... (10:47 PM) : 

effortless comfort! jealous


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:56 PM) : 

He's very hot! I think this type of pants looks better on men than women, actually.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:10 PM) : 

really cute guy in really awesome pants. i love it


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:12 PM) : 

In fashion forward attire, the style tends to wear the man, but in this case the man definitely wore the style.


Anonymous URI Student said ... (11:21 PM) : 

why are all of the men in Rio so FABULOUS looking?!!

Sart, please take me on your gallavanting adventures.



Blogger eyemagination said ... (11:40 PM) : 

Great picture... but I have to say that what I like the most are those very basic pair of Havaianas!

Not sure about the drop crotch though...

Are those people all top models in Brazil?

keep up with the great job!


Blogger said ... (11:50 PM) : 

I know you know better than me but....NO to this look.


Blogger susan marr williamson said ... (12:06 AM) : 

wow. this is my absolute favorite shot. such a new and innovative look for such a seemingly normal man. perfect!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:07 AM) : 

does anyone know who makes the pants? where can i get a pair?


Blogger Leigh said ... (12:43 AM) : 



Blogger Milena said ... (12:51 AM) : 

I don't know about the pants - they make everyone look so damn bowlegged. I really don't think they do anything for anyone in terms of silhouette.


Anonymous street-spotted said ... (1:14 AM) : 

simple and effortless, yet still delivers a sense of great style!


Blogger Nita-Karoliina said ... (1:59 AM) : 

what a hot man! casual nice outfit, i wanna visit rio with my man..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:08 AM) : 

I love what he's wearing, I think women could pull off this look too.

By the way, he's hot...who is he?


Blogger michaeljosephowens said ... (2:32 AM) : 

Perfection. You've gotten some really awesome shots lately of men lookin' supremely stylish and casual. There's nothing this guy could have done to improve on the look here. It's perfect from the stubble to the Havaianas.


Anonymous Rayan said ... (2:56 AM) : 

I'm not sure how I feel about this.

I like the pants..but..I don't like the ''look'' the guys has...the haircut and how he has his glasses ruin the whole thing


Blogger Dominica said ... (3:26 AM) : 

like it ! Simple chic, effortless and when you have beautiful feet, sandals or flip-flops are a YES !
Seeing these pics makes me wanna long for summer again...


Blogger Lady Lala said ... (3:38 AM) : 

wow!! i love it, hi wears the trousers in such as perfect way...


Blogger XAVS said ... (3:44 AM) : 

gorgeous,..but nothing special in his stylism, right?


Blogger The Man Who Knew Too Much said ... (3:55 AM) : 

wow, that guy is the cool himself.


Blogger sandman_gr said ... (4:19 AM) : 

Only with a body like his you can pull of these pants. Smashing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:25 AM) : 

yup just as horrible on guys as girl. well at least with all the babies who weren't born in the 80's looking so bad, it will make everyone over 35 look even better.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:00 AM) : 

Just for information, these are not called (ugly) "drop-crotch" but sarouel(-inspired pants) ..


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (6:35 AM) : 

Wow....he looks sizzling hot yet cool at the same time!


Blogger Stephanie said ... (6:39 AM) : 

These crazy pants actually look ok on him. Then again, what wouldn't...a man as beautiful as he is could wear anything and look good!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:48 AM) : 

the pants are from OSKLEN!


Anonymous charles said ... (6:51 AM) : 

it's him, not the pants (although I like them): homie is hawt. that's all.


Blogger strikk said ... (6:57 AM) : 

oh my.....!


Anonymous foodimentary101 said ... (7:02 AM) : 

I like them on a good looking person. Lets hope gap doesn't catch on.

Those pants are not for every figure but, it's neat to see something different going on.


Blogger Mavis said ... (8:17 AM) : 

guys who can pull of pants and slippers like that are hot!


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (8:31 AM) : 

I love the look!


Blogger The Clever Pup said ... (9:20 AM) : 

No way - guys like this exist in the real world!

I am in the camp that doesn't like this look...droopy drawers... so not getting it....

Blogger Nick Bograd said ... (10:16 AM) : 

The pants look good on him, the little roll on the bottom gives him the extra casual look especially with the sandals.


Blogger simplyolive said ... (10:18 AM) : 

i'm usually not a fan of the droopy crotch...
this works on him!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:32 AM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:32 AM) : 

oh yes..another case of being able to wear a garbage bag and still looking effortlessly HOT and sexy if you have genes of a god.


Blogger Iheartfashion said ... (10:38 AM) : 

I wouldn't have expected to like this look on a man but he looks amazing!


Blogger TEXTSTYLES said ... (10:43 AM) : 

he's not even one of the best looking men ever
the pants work, sublime


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:53 AM) : 

It is not so much the silhouette I object to with the droopy M.C Hammer pants you have photographed so far, but the quality of the pants themselves. They have all looked like stretched out and soiled gym/yoga pants. There have been very interesting pants playing with this silhouette featured by such designers as Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garcons, Lumen et Umbra, and others. The ones you have shown so far look like cheap running pants that the wearers have taken a poop in.


Blogger MAJoR said ... (10:56 AM) : 

At 5'4 this will never work for me, but i love it on him! And flip flops in november? i'm so jealous right now it hurts, lol


Blogger norawoah said ... (11:10 AM) : 

relaxed, confident, casual but not sloppy, perfect.


Blogger Lisa Chow said ... (11:35 AM) : 

That is a beautiful man...but I still can't get on board with the drop crotch pants.


Anonymous sat said ... (11:35 AM) : 

o god, not men now. and what is the woman in the background wearing? drop crotch shorts? not a fan at all of these baggy styles. sorry!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:40 AM) : 

Wow! Something to aspire to.


Anonymous karmapolice said ... (11:42 AM) : 

it's good to see the men in rio dressed in such relaxed styles, and the women in such lovely airy looks.

i think casual guy style, when done right, is great, rivaled only by old man style.


Anonymous POST-IT UP said ... (11:50 AM) : 

This guy could wear anything and look cool.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:57 AM) : 

HOT. I love it...this guy is on fire.

Relaxed, and usually this is just an outfit you see on tired people. But he makes it gorgeous!

Holy Batman... I'm thinking I should own a pair of these!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:51 PM) :

Blogger Chelsea said ... (2:52 PM) : 

where are guys like that is chicago...very cute guy with great style, well done!


Blogger pliedesign said ... (3:01 PM) : 

yup. this is great! and, like also a anonymous said, that is not the "drop-crotch", but "sarouel" pants...all the Rio vibe.

hope that you enjoy your stay here !! =)

very when are you coming to melbourne Australia ?? Melbourne is a fashion capital of Australia.


Blogger Marília said ... (3:21 PM) : 

effortless cool and gorgeous. just loved the tee, pants and havaianas!
amazing rio atmosphere!
post more pics of Claro Rio Summer, please! It was crowed of incredible hot outfits!


Anonymous Flaco said ... (3:23 PM) : 

Lots of extra fabric rubbing the inner thighs-- style be damned, who needs that?

Me gustan sus pantalones con las "chanclas" dan un aire informal muy oportuno (sobretodo en Rio)

Blogger Peace in a Time of War said ... (3:48 PM) : 

I agree with a few of you, not so sure about these pants yet. Don't think it looks terrible but even some khakis would have done the man more justice.


Blogger stone said ... (3:54 PM) : 

I think his choice of watch really makes the pants work.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:05 PM) : 

those shoes have to go


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:31 PM) : 

Damn hes sexy. Damn!


Blogger Tina Frey Designs said ... (6:17 PM) : 

This guy definitely makes the drop crotch look good!! Nice that it doesn't look at all like MC Hammer.


Blogger Claudio said ... (7:16 PM) : 

Yes, the sarouel pants are from Osklen, a Rio based label that has shops in NYC, Tokyo, Rome, Lisbon, Sao paulo and of course, Rio.


Blogger Bruna, prazer. said ... (7:21 PM) : 

this guy looks so great in those pants ans of couurse the havaianas brings the lightness to the look. Everybody here has at leats one pair, as you can see.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:23 PM) : 

where CAN I find THOOOSSe pants!$**???


Blogger izzydore said ... (9:56 PM) : 

whoa, he manages to make the drop-crotch pant not look foolish!


Blogger twentysomethinggirl said ... (11:21 PM) : 

I love drop crotch pants in general, can look really cute on the right guy or girl. In Australia they started to get known as "poo-catchers" and i think that was the single most effective thing that stopped the trend before it properly got started... :/
Totally sucks. The post earlier with the girl in the purple drop crotch pants is soooo lovely. x


Blogger Apocalypse said ... (12:19 AM) : 

STOP!!!!! Hammer Time!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:09 AM) : 

The stigma MC Hammer left behind renders these pants unwearable, especially for guys living in California. The ridicule would go on for days.


Blogger Somnia Carvalho said ... (1:12 AM) : 

Very cool! Adorei!


Anonymous Sara said ... (2:22 AM) : 

he´s hot!


Blogger StyleFitz said ... (3:11 AM) : 

like the look, but if the guy wasn't as good looking as he is, would there be as much reaction to the pictures? you can talk about fashion forward, but in terms of wearability, i reckon these pants don't go beyond lounge wear.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:58 AM) : 

I agree with some of the comments before, ''Totally cute guy; totally awful pants'', horrible pants, which ruined everyhting.




Blogger Sina said ... (10:11 AM) : 

Are guys like him hidden in Rio? I'd consider to go there on holiday


Blogger luis_andres said ... (11:58 AM) : 

awful pants....absolutely unflattering. nice t shirt and above all..... nice guy


Blogger MsSvelteNY said ... (2:02 PM) : 

I still have mixed feelings about this trend. I have a pair that I lounge around in... in the house. Just not brave enough yet to wear it outside. This just might not be the trend for me but I can admire it on others. Talk to me when it's over 90 degree's outside and I might just change my mind.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:21 PM) : 

U must have a strong personality to dress this look!!

Wonderful n great land, Im in love for Brazil!

to the anonymous who asked about the pants, i guess that you can find something like those on Osklen...

i think the clothing is somewhat besides the point the here...


Blogger André said ... (9:59 AM) : 

I bet this pants are from Osklen..
they always have these kinda pants.
So cool and beautiful..they call them Nirvana Pants.
I wish I could wear them..but I'm too short for that.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:03 AM) : 

Oh gosh!! Someone pointed out the woman in the background wearing baggy shorts which look like pampers.


Blogger MaLady said ... (12:27 PM) : 

These drop-waist pants remind me of the physical attributes of E.T. - wrinkly and very short-legged. I wonder how much a person's stride looks like a waddle while wearing them?

Love the monochromatic looks you've been showing us - they enhance without overpowering a person's character I think.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:20 PM) : 

he is making me HOT! oh man- what a perfectly sexy laid back look. I think this dude could wear anything and look like a prince.


Anonymous Violeta said ... (3:58 PM) : 

Yeah, those pants are from Osklen (, and those flip-flops are not Havaianas, it´s a pair of Ipanema sandals...
