Today in using innuendo to sell pants, Duluth Trading Co. is shilling "Ballroom Jeans," which deliver exactly that: Room for men's balls (Thank you, Glamour, for spotting this gem of a product). Not only can manly men "crouch with out the ouch" thanks to a "Crotch Gusset," the company knows its market beyond their down there-related needs. The jeans feature big ol' zippers for man-sized hands rather than delicate lady digits that can navigate traditional zippers with no problem. See the jeans in action after the jump.
