The charcoal AA disco pants have currently become my favorites. And that means both pairs. I’m so glad I had two pairs done. I feel they’re even more awesome than black. And they go with everything just as well as black. There was definitely a good reason I had these altered. Didn’t know I would love them this much!
As you can imagine I wore them again today. It was my fourth overall wearing for this new year and it already matches my total for the month of January 2018. Today I went with the large pair which only had the legs widened. Had some stomach issues overnight so I didn’t want to put too much pressure with the medium. The plan was to go with the medium but as I tried to fasten them I noticed it was a bit tight and I didn’t want to squeeze the stomach. The large was just perfect in this case.
I had planned on taking the brown one in tomorrow to get done. Even set up an appointment with the tailor to talk over a few details. But on the way home today I drove through some large puddles of standing water on a busy street and then just a few minutes later my check engine light started flashing and the car began to shake. Luckily the light stopped flashing and is just steady on now. But I’m hoping it’s just a matter of needing to dry out and hopefully all will be well tomorrow. Otherwise, it could ruin my appointment and worse, set me back some additional money. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
But man, I am just loving these AA disco pants. And I like the fact that I have the two options to wear–a large with just widened legs and a medium with widened and elongated legs. I only wish the medium were just as long as the large so I wouldn’t have to have them lengthened. But I seriously want to get some other colors made up in the same way. So brown will be next. I guess I’ll have to be content with having brown solely in medium. Then I’d like to do midnight navy. I currently have two pairs of the AA originals in this color. One is a small and the other a medium. The medium is brand new while the small is one I found while thrifting. I think I should look to get a large. I want to stick with the original made in the USA version. They were definitely tighter compared to the new ones made in Mexico by Gildan. And then I want to get some forest green made and probably a black and a pearl. I realize these are big plans and they may not come to pass, but it gives me more to look forward to. And I’m not even bothering with the Chinese ones anymore. There is no comparison between them and AA ones. None.
By the way, today was rainy and not sunny at all so my charcoal pants did not do much shining. But they’re still more brilliant than anything anyone else was wearing!
OK, I started this post two days ago and since then I have taken my brown pants in to get altered. So it will be a week’s worth of wait. I am very excited. I asked her to copy what she did on the charcoal medium pants with one minor detail of difference. In the meantime I will be wearing the charcoal pairs and whatever else until then.
Today was very cold here. Not disco pants weather. In fact, my thicker skinny jeans did not act as a buffer against the cold air. Tomorrow will be slightly better but I will most likely not wear any until Friday.
In another bit of news I came across a nicely priced pair of the two-tone AA disco pants in size large. Since I already have a medium I plan on having this large altered but only to the extent of widening the legs. Otherwise, they should be long enough. I think it will be very cool. If I were to alter the medium I have then I would need to find another pair of the two-tones to cut up for extra material. That would prove to be a costly and probably a time-consuming endeavor.
Finally, the car turned out okay. It started out with the engine light still on but after a bit of driving it turned off. So all is well, thankfully!
