Poll: Men In Red Pants – Cool? Not Cool?

mens red pants

Growing up, I always heard these called “Nanny reds” because you wear them when you’re in Nantucket.

Then I became an adult and realized that no one calls them that. That’s not actually their name. That was maybe one of those “what my family specifically calls these” things. Anyhow, it confuses people. People think you’re asking whether or not their nanny beat them, or if she was a communist or something,  so don’t go around calling them that.

What this is coming down to is every time I see a man in red pants I feel like calling out “hi, friend!” Or “you’re looking yar today!” Or “a weird joke about lobster rolls that sounds phallic!”

I can’t tell if this is actually a cool style or not, accordingly. Yes? No? Cool or not? On men. On women is a whole different topic. Please help me understand things .

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

    I….kind of love it? Maybe not on someone I’m having sex with, but someone I want to exist beside and appreciate that they exist.

    Wait…maybe definitely on someone I want to have sex with, but not someone I want to have sex with regularly/have a relationship with?

    Or maybe on someone I’m in a relationship with, but if I was in a relationship with a guy who rocked red pants I’d have to SERIOUSLY step my game up and become more awesome myself?

    I’m so conflicted about what my feelings are.

    Two words: Jack White.

    He’s enough to give them official cool status.

    The pants pictured are not Nantucket Reds. Nantucket reds are a pinkish orange, and fade over the years as they are washed.

    Louis Tomlinson.

    Enough said.
