Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

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.
