More Genie Pants

Nearly two years ago, I blogged about the renewed interest in genie pants - those billowy threads that often have a drop-crotch a la MC Hammer. At the time, we were seeing them everywhere - from fashion runways to Victoria's Secret catalogs.

I continue to get a steady stream of traffic to that old post, from both search engines and a popular link on the the Working Artist blog back in September (although her post is devoted to the more-stylish, less Hammer, tango pant originally discussed on La Nuit Blanche).

Katie Holmes unveiled genie pants of her own design in October, and now I see that Matthew Bridge from Camper intends to wear them in '09 (the drop-crotch variety, mind you!).

What is it about these pants that makes them so enduring?
