The Ugliest Pants in the History of Pants November 6, 2009 by Daisy Bateman Tapered. Cropped. High-waisted. Balloon-crotched. Distressed. Culottes. Apparently designed with Torgo as the fit model. And the best part? Retail price: $352. Of course, if you hurry, you can buy them from Gilt for only $138. And they have plenty of sizes left!
