    Any name for this kind of jeans and trousers please?

    Hi,

    I would be grateful if you could give me the right names please. This is about the jeans with large hanging crotch! I need to know if there's any casuale name for this type.

    And, would 'low-size jeans' be the opposite of this?

    I've heard it called "sagging jeans". Mostly I call it "disgusting".

    "Drop crotch" jeans (sometimes hyphenated).

    I wish there were a Dislike button on this forum!

    ! Too right! I know it is not the right place to put this, but I've always wondered why we can't have the 'beauty' element in new designs, or should we just put it down to the fact 'beauty' is so relative a concept! Whatever the case, there's no accounting for taste! ;)

    You may find this style more appealing:

    Isn't low-slung also used, at least by some of the fashion's many detractors?

    You're right. It seems "low-slung", "low-rise" and "low-crotch" are all used as well as "drop-crotch". Going back to the final part of the OP's question, I don't know of a name for "the opposite of this". The opposite would just be normal jeans, with the crotch in the sensible place!

    Re: Any name for this kind of jeans and trousers please?

    I am happy to say that until this picture was on my screen in this thread, I had never, in my life, seen such an article of clothing. I hope never to again. No wonder I had no idea what you were talking about.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
