Here’s one fashion trend I hope never takes off picnic pants.
Oh yes, picnic pants are very real and every bit as ridiculous as you’d expect them to be.
If not more ridiculous.
The picnic pants were designed to fill the need to have pants with a crotch big enough to spread out like a table when you sit down with your legs crossed.
Doesn’t everyone want to eat off of their crotch?
Italian design company Acquacalda created the mega-strange Pic Nic pants – part jeans, part extra roomy crotch fabric flap designed to spread out when seated.
Acquacalda’s website describes the vision behind the bizarre pants:
“Pic Nic pants take advantage of the usual cross-legged position to become a comfortable surface useful for the consumption of a meal outdoors. Laterally pants have an orientable pocket for drinks.”
These pants fill a void you never even knew you had kind of like the drop crotch skinny jeans, which appeared to be one of the most unflattering styles ever.
Until picnic pants came along, that is.
