Last week, Racked NY counted down their Top 10 Crazypants of 2010. And we thought, huh, it's been a long time since we've seen a good pair of crazypants. (The Thakoon Addition pants we bought then returned after all of our friends insisted they gave us mad polterwang notwithstanding.) Imagine our delight when we came across not one but two very choice pairs of crazypants in the same week. First up: during a stroll on Melrose, we found these asymmetrical legged, droopy crotched, groin-flap equipped wonders at Salsa Jeans. They weren't open at the time, but we're guessing that since Salsa is actually a pretty reasonable pricepoint, these crazypants could be had for around a franklin. Next up from Pixie Market: a pair of bleached denim, high-waisted jeans with faux-crocodile chaps built right in. Pretty crazy, right? And only $312.
