Why is the male silhouette so fucked?

Don't get me wrong - I'm an advocate for change and I appreciate dramatic lines and silhouettes for the sake of portraying ability and avant garde creativity; but when we are asked to accept these drop-crutch pants that imply fashionably induced ball-sagging and sweaters/blazers/teeshirts that are so long he may aswell be donning a kilt, one can't help but wonder.

What happened to the days when men dressed like men instead of pushing the envelope so they can get away with dressing like depressed, frumpy old women?
