This Is the Latest Bizarre Fashion Trend for Men

One brave designer is putting the "crotch" into "crochet."

According to Schuyler Ellers, who runs the fabulous Lord von Schmitt store on Etsy, the crochet wear is made into "one-of-a-kind pants" perfect for "Burning Man after the slopes" or "morning yoga in the winter." They're crafted from previously used blankets, so buyer beware.
