Aggressive, unflattering, just kind of silly — we are speaking, of course, of Justin Bieber's drop-crotch pants and not his recent birthday-week behavior in London. Bieber has been on a fashion roll the last few months, wearing only the lowest-hanging, strangest-looking pants that menswear has to offer. Because Justin Bieber is a sensible, swaggy teen, and because he would never do something just because he thinks it looks cool, Vulture assumes that Justin has a reason for such radical sartorial choices. And then it came to us: storage. Justin Bieber is hiding so much cool stuff in those pants. DVDs, snacks — you name it, he's got it.
