I am not a SW&D person and know almost nothing about "street wear" or denim. I only own two pairs of jeans (both identical, basic Levis 505's). But even I know the jeans in the above picture are, IN FACT, the worst jeans in the entire world. You should burn these tonight. I am not kidding.
With the right pants (anything other than jeans), you would have had a nice outfit.
Based on the rest of his outfit and the way he carries himself I'm assuming they are supposed to be ironically unfashionable, so unfashionable that they are fashionable.
