I would never be able to wear these, outside of my own house. But if anybody could make them look good, I would be very happy for them. I think these 'African' pants are really cool. The color the cut, the sort of styling I have seen. It's more likely these could be pulled off better in a Scandinavian land because I could see something in North America just having a tougher time not looking like they are going to an M.I.A concert. I was going to say now is your chance to take the dive since they are probably on sale, but they aren't, so you're going to have to really love them. I do think that stepping out of your comfort zone at times can be a good way to keep yourself actually into wearing clothes, whether it's some coveralls or some African pants, I always do recommend trying something different.
