    Drop-crotch-style pants enjoyed a brief moment in the sun a few seasons ago, and — we admit — made really cool girls look even cooler, while making the rest of us look like we were wearing adult diapers. Lest you thought that bandwagon had already rolled off into the sunset, Oak is reviving the terrifying trend with their drop-crotch skinny jean.

    When drop-crotches do work, they're usually in a thicker jersey material, cut a little baggy, and without a fly, back pockets, or any other details that'd make people think your butt actually looked like a deflated beach ball.

For Oak jeans that deliver in the derriere department, check out their entire denim collection, which features more than plenty non-DC options.
