Spotted: Drop crotch trousers in Italy

riccione drop crotch trouser baggy street style.jpgItaly might be one of the only places where the men dress better than the women. This is of course a massive generalisation but diamanté, stripper shoes and white capri pants will never be a match for the classic, timeless style that many Italian men adopt.

Dropped-crotch trousers was not something I expected to spot on holiday but I duly dug out my camera and snapped this young man before he rode off on his super cool spray-painted bike. I just wish I knew the Italian for ‘I’m not a creepy weirdo, honest’.

His white kecks are given the classic treatment with a slouchy striped grey blazer which adds relaxed chic. I like the way he’s subtly matched the blazer with a battered pair of Superga pumps (an Italian staple), hats off!
