New Pants Got Crotch Loops

20 Jan

Not sure what their job is, but I recently discovered a bonus pair of loops in the crotch of my pants.

It really makes wearing a belt weird.

Thought I’d share.

    How bizarre! After some googling, I found… nothing to explain that.

    For safety harness straps?

    Found this thread about them on, of all places, a Subaru owners’ club forum.

    That’s the Brett Favre camera angle.

    I went looking to see if I could find that pair of pants and found these instead – still laughing

      LMAO! I had to click on that, wahahah! What is the story there? Dumpy diaper pants?

      As far as the loops go, if they were in the back you could call em poop loops.

    A place for the womens to attach leashes to their men? Hmmm…

  8. Brad January 20, 2011 at 11:07 pm #

    LOL!!! I think those are for your apple bags.

    I suspect the first person is correct.

    But the one above me is more correct.

    Well that’s something I haven’t seen before.

  12. ErikaJean January 21, 2011 at 2:12 am #

    my guess would be for a climbing harness or something??

    Les sobraban y decidieron ponerlos ahí.

  16. Kate C January 21, 2011 at 6:20 am #

    Yes, you’re back! Best thing on a 9 degree morning. Tell Beth we’d love to hear from her, too!

  17. Patty January 21, 2011 at 7:25 am #

    LOL…I won’t be the first to say, “Thanks for sharing!” I’ll bet the loops are to hold up those big rubber wader things fishermen wear?

  18. Tena Lynn January 21, 2011 at 8:00 am #

    OMG crotch loops, huh?

    Ya’ know, if you tried to loop your belt through those things, I can kinda see where that might get uncomfortable.

    Talked about getting certain parts scrunched up~~~ouch!!

  19. Collette January 21, 2011 at 8:14 am #

    I’m sure you’ll find a suitable use for them, somehow…!

  20. Janet January 21, 2011 at 8:18 am #


    All I can think of is a place to place a rope so you can be led like a dog anywhere Beth wants to go. I am so sorry. Please don’t ban me! 😀

  21. pamelalovescharlie January 21, 2011 at 8:37 am #

    LOL….that’s very different! Something to ponder…

  22. Sam G January 21, 2011 at 8:45 am #

    Have to say it, have to say it! It’s for flying by the seat of your pants!

    Waiting for the booooooos.

  23. Ali M. January 21, 2011 at 8:57 am #

    um…….yeah, speechless.

    Silly that is to attach to your nut bra for when you are older and your nuts sag … please don’t search nut bra on youtube … no really please do it is hilarious!

    If only I had a nickel for every time I WISHED my pants had crotch loops!

  26. gringation January 21, 2011 at 10:26 am #

    Maybe they’re for bondage straps or something?

    That style was kind of 5 years ago… but I guess now they’re trying to make it more casual with jeans.

    • Zari January 21, 2011 at 11:33 pm #

      @Gringation: The Purple Bondage Pants — they’re Out of Stock! 😦

  27. Tracy January 21, 2011 at 10:35 am #

    Did you buy those in West Hollywood? 😉

  28. fibrowitch January 21, 2011 at 12:47 pm #

    Do the paints also have strings to close the pants leg. If they do then the inner loops are to tie up the pants

  29. jackie January 21, 2011 at 1:25 pm #

    someone beat me too it..said they were for Beth

  30. Melody January 21, 2011 at 1:33 pm #

    Did it feel weird taking pictures like that? Because it was a little weird when I realized I was extra close to the monitor, really studying your crotch. lol

  31. pamelalovescharlie January 21, 2011 at 1:39 pm #

    After careful consideration all afternoon…I think I have figured it out….they are “wedgie-puller-outer loops” a quick tug and voila…no digging around from behind! Wait do guys get wedgies??? I only seem to see girls yoinking wedgies 😉 Oh well…it’s the best I could come up with and after additional pondering….it would probably only be effective should one be “going commando”

  32. Debbie Johnson January 21, 2011 at 1:40 pm #

    Absolutely love Robyn’s comment!!!!

  33. Lisa Fancher January 21, 2011 at 3:08 pm #

    The only question that comes to mind is umm…do these pants have velcro holding them together at the seams for fast and easy removal? 😉

  34. john (not lennon) January 21, 2011 at 3:30 pm #

    Hmmm, is it just the way you’re holding them or does one hang lower than the other?

  35. Waterland January 21, 2011 at 5:06 pm #

    Crotch Loops is a great name for a punk band.

  36. Jules January 21, 2011 at 8:24 pm #

    For your crotchless chaps? To keep them up?

  37. Martha January 21, 2011 at 9:26 pm #

    maybe they’re for holding fishing poles

  38. purposefullyliving January 21, 2011 at 9:37 pm #

    handles! 🙂

  39. Antonia January 22, 2011 at 8:15 am #

    Its quite obvious that the loops are to make pant wedgies and hanging on school lockers easier. Duh.


  40. jacksonzombie January 22, 2011 at 10:38 am #

    Crotch Loops . . . .hopes no one tries to turn that into a breakfast cereal.

  41. Jeanne January 22, 2011 at 11:31 am #

    Probably for a teeny weeny crotch belt…..I would cut them off.

  42. Carla January 22, 2011 at 4:38 pm #

    Gee, thanks!

  43. Irish Girl January 23, 2011 at 12:29 pm #

    Thanks for that, Jorge. I’m gonna add that to my “Odd Things We Don’t Know What to Do With” file.

  44. Irma January 23, 2011 at 12:53 pm #

    Okay, the crotch loops are really botherine me because I want to know what hey are for! What kind of pants are they otherwise / where did you buy them? I’m thinking there may be something to a previous commenter’s idea that they are for attaching waders.

    Granted, I’ve only ever seen waders that look like an actual pair of pants….but there HAS to be a reason.

    • Chrissy January 23, 2011 at 3:33 pm #

      i agree with the one who suggested they are for a climbing harness of some kind.

      you were on Lost, didn’t you people climb and hike a lot? no one on the island had any crotch loop pants?

  45. Karen January 23, 2011 at 4:22 pm #

    Totally unrelated to your crotch belt loops, but will you and Beth be at the Grammys or
    after party. My husbands dad is getting a lifetime achievement award and we would love to meet you and Beth. Please email me at

    I had a pair of pants that had those things. It added support while sitting with your hand on your crotch (middle finger and ring finger looped through them).

  48. Tyson Garst January 24, 2011 at 12:49 pm #

    According to what I found online they are really supposed to be for concealing weaponary and/or drugs. FYI to all those out there that actually try to get away with concealment when travelling – these pants try to make it easier.

    • Sam G January 24, 2011 at 2:45 pm #

      These loops look like they are on the outside of the pants, not sure how that would work smuggling anything.

  49. James Hernandez January 24, 2011 at 4:11 pm #


    I have to admit that beats the three buttons that were sewed into the inside of my polo shirt. But it doesn’t’ beat the pair of jeans that i bought that was missing a zipper – talk about airing your business in the open.

  50. Caroline B January 25, 2011 at 7:12 am #

    They’re to hang your fanny-pack from…..I’m sorry, I’m British, to me that’s funny!

  51. heathaho January 25, 2011 at 10:21 am #

    These may come in handy if you have to do your own stunts on Alcatraz! They can harness you right in! 😛

  52. Tina January 25, 2011 at 11:39 pm #

    “Love handles”? hahaha

  53. Heather January 27, 2011 at 8:34 pm #

    LOL LOL sounds kinky!

  54. jingle bells October 28, 2011 at 4:22 am #

    I’m sitting in central Australia with exactly the same pants pondering what the crotch loops are for. Not sure, but I’m gonna hang a couple of christmas bells there next festive season

  55. Rocco September 12, 2013 at 5:44 pm #

    They are based off Jump suit pants from World war 2. Items in the side pockets are fed through the corner pockets holes then the loops and tided down.
