A style of trousers that became very popular in the late-70s early European punk movement. Current popularity amongst emo teens aside, drainpipes were, originally, the anti-bellbottoms, worn by The Ramones, The Clash, The Prunes, The Stooges (when Iggs could be persuaded to wear clothing at all!), and other bands that mattered. To say drainpipes are fitted pants worn by radio-friendly emos is like saying Good Charlotte is punk. Or Gwen Stefani is glam. Or My Chemical Romance is rock. It's a f***ing sin, and anyone who perpetrates this crime against intelligence should be ashamed. Plus lined up and shot and burried in an unmarked grave.
"When punk hit Ireland, Gav was one of the first to sport drainpipes."

"I found him very intimidating, because I was still wearing my broke flares like a common poof."

Very tight jeans that are tight all way the down to the ankles. Usally worn by Emo/Scene kids, with either Converse or ballet pumps. Black or grey are popular with the emo/scene kids.
Scene Kid 1- "Omgz where did you get yours drain pipes?"

Scene Kid 2- "Topshop"

very tight jeans, especially tight at the bottom. mainly worn by emos with a spiked belt. they are usually black.
not to be mistaken for the pipes that run down the side of houses

Long before punk, drainpipes were originaly popular in the mid to late fifties amongst Teddy Boys, often coupled with a velvet-collared drape jacket to form a suit.
Super narrow, they sometimes have a small split at the bottom of the outside seam.
Person 1: Check that guy's quiff! And what a snappy dreser!

Person 2: Yes, they say he has the narrowest drainpipes in Glasgow.

An act of sex that can take place between one reciever of either sex, and any number of male givers.

The reciever takes a plastic funnel and lodges it in their anus, whilst the givers ejaculate into said funnel.
Did you hear 'X' had a drainpipe with 'Y' and 'Z'?

Who recieved?

'X'

Drain-pipes are these super straigt jeans that are normally tight and DON'T flare at the bottom. the best ones are dark colours. Drain-pipes are usually quite dear (well from where I am theyre very expensive!) these pants are NOT essential for emo's.
emo-boy 1: wow! check that emo kid!
emo-boy 2: what?
emo-boy 1: I wonder if he can breathe in those...
emo-boy 2: oohh, the Drain-pipes? probably not.
