Hey Readers! I’ve picked up a couple more newly made pairs of vintage-cut disco pants from the same makers of the navy blue and hunter green ones I have. I will probably have them tomorrow so I’ll be taking lots of pics and sharing some here. I will be getting red and silver so I can’t wait to show you all.
I’ve also picked up a few other things lately. I’m waiting on a pair of red, faux leather skinny jeans from a Chinese seller.
They look really nice, but coming from China I hope it doesn’t turn out to be a mistake. Didn’t cost too much so will not be a major loss. But I do hope they fit well and do not rip and/or fall apart. I’ve been interested in red coated or leather (faux or not) jeans lately.
Another thing I picked up is a pair of H&M leather-like skinny jeans:
Those look great! Only problem is I ordered a size that is way below what I can normally fit into because only one size was available. I looked all around the web for these in larger sizes but couldn’t find them anywhere. How did I miss these when they first came out? Oh, well. These are supposedly stretch so I’m hoping they will fit.
I’m looking at some 7 For All Mankind Slimmy jeans in coated black:
I didn’t know 7FAM was still making coated denim. I have my shiny, coated “Rocker” pair which I bought 5 years ago (and finally wore just last week for the 1st time!). And then just yesterday I came across these Slimmy’s that are available both in cotton/spandex with zip fly and also 100% cotton with button fly. I’m not a big fan of button-fly and I prefer the comfort afforded by spandex so the choice for me is a no-brainer.
You might wonder why I would want a pair of these since I already have my Rocker’s. Well, when I actually wore my Rocker’s for the first time last week for several hours, they were really killing my waist and I noticed a little bit of stretching-out of the material around the top of the zipper. So I need a backup pair that is not as tight-fitting. The Rocker’s are pretty shiny. I don’t believe the Slimmy’s are as much based on the photos I’ve seen but I will only know once I have them in my possession.
I also picked up a pair of Topman’s black leather-look spray-on skinny jeans:
They seem similar to the H&M pants but not as shiny. Again, it’s hard to tell through photos only. I’ll know once I have both in my hands. This pair is more along the typical size I wear so they should fit. However, the last time I bought a Topman spray on skinny in my typical size I ended up returning them because they would not fit at all. I’m hoping that won’t be the case with these.
A few other pants I acquired recently include red Levi’s 510, 7FAM Paxtyn skinny jeans, tan Levi’s 511 corduroy and a Levi’s 511 in Shadow.
That’s all for now until I get my new disco pants.
