He obviously isn't ready for potty training. My son did this too. So we decided to postpone for awhile. I waited any extra year, Then just made a deal with him. If he wanted to do something like go swimming or play outside or play with his trucks he had to go to the potty first. It wasn't until we went on vacation to the beach when he was about 3 years old and we told him that we couldn't play at the beach unless he told us each time he needed to go to the bathroom that it finally clicked and he started doing it. He has been fully potty trained for 1 year and he hasn't reverted back to peeing his pants since. And it only took 1 week to get him both night time and daytime potty trained.

My daughter kind of does the same thing. At home I usually let her run around in just a pull up, but obviously she has to wear clothes at day care so I've started making her wear clothes at home when we are training as well. My daughter is hard headed in the fact she knows when she has to go, but she doesn't always tell you or she just tells you no over and over again. We started a reward system with pennies which seems to be helping, but today was not a good day. It's all part of the learning process. Encourage him to wear his pants and even when he tells you no ask him to try for you. My daughter is only a month older than your son.
