In the time since my last post I have added 3 more spandex disco pants to my collection. First, I acquired another black Frederick’s of Hollywood which fits very nicely. One can never have too many black pairs of disco pants as the colour is so universal and can be worn with any and everything. Second, I purchased a brand new navy Bojeangles disco pants. And when I say brand new I don’t mean “new old stock” or unworn-with-tags-vintage. I mean brand-new-made-in-the-present! Yes, the great news is that Bojeangles and Le Gambi disco pants featuring the original, vintage straight-leg cut are being made once again and the pants are absolutely amazing. The vintage, pre-owned ones are great but nothing really beats having brand new. And these have a brand new smell to them also. The vintage ones all have that vintage lycra smell to them. You know what I’m talking about, right? But I still love the vintage ones. But yes, you can now get brand new pairs of vintage-fit spandex disco pants if you know where to look. And these are most definitely unisex, as they look more like a pair of jeans/pants instead of American Apparel’s (and dozens of copycats) legging version. My first pair is in navy. I’ll be getting other colours as soon as possible.
And third, I got a vintage pair of Frederick’s of Hollywood spandex disco jeans in a grey blue or steel blue color. An awesome colour and a very nice fit. Not as tight as my lilac Le Gambi’s or red Frederick’s which I categorize as extremely tight but not as loose as my size 4 black Bojeangles either. Somewhere in between and I would call it perfect. Same goes for the navy blue Bojeangles I just got.
I may post photos of the new additions if I get around to it.
