Dear Brother in Islam
Assalamu Alaikum

Pulling the trousers over ankles with pride or vanity is forbidden, Haraam, and is a great sin. In Numerous Ahaadeeth the Prophet has informed about the anguish of Allah against the trousers-prolonger. Ibn Umar narrates that the Prophet(SWS) said, ''Whosoever lets his trouser out of vanity, Allah will not look at him on the Resurrection day.
(Bukhari & Muslim)

Hadhrat Abu Huraira narrates that the Prophet (SWS) said, ''Whatever flows of trousers below the ankles will be in the Fire.

If there is no pride or vanity in letting loose the trousers, then it is not Haraam but Makrooh Tanzihi (undesirable practice).
(Mirqaat on Mishkaat)
