So last evening I was wearing the AA disco pants for a bit. As tiny-looking and skintight as they appear, they sure are a super comfortable pair of pants. I was thinking they would be completely appropriate to wear to a party or a gathering at some friend’s place. They’re great for sitting on the floor in, too. No movement issues at all. Of course, I think the smallest pair I can fit into is a medium. The last size small that I tried getting into was a charcoal pair I bought on ebay. I tried putting them on but I gave up seeing there was no way I could get them up and buttoned/zipped without damaging them. Funny though, my small pair in black that I gave to my girl friend used to fit me fine. That pair was from 2009. Perhaps they are making them smaller now.
This medium that I still have I bought in late 2008 so they are 6 years old now. It was from the time that AA first started selling these pants. And I noticed yesterday when I had them on that around the seam in the crotch area it is starting to thin out. Mind you I have never worn these pants anywhere in public. I have just worn them for a few hours at a time at home whenever I’ve had the urge to do some photo shoots. So I’m a bit disappointed that they are starting to ‘crap out’ without ever having had the privilege of being worn out in public. That’s why I would like to get some more pairs before AA stops selling them, which I do suspect may be sooner than later as there already are certain colors/sizes that are no longer available. I have come to deeply appreciate AA’s modernized version of the disco pant over the years, but I would still feel less confident wearing them than the vintage ones. They still suffer from the tights/leggings syndrome which I am not against but fully embrace. It’s just a little more difficult to match up tops and shoes with leggings-style pants.
While we’re on the subject of AA disco pants, a reader of this blog has sent photos of his 3-tone disco pants for us to see. Here they are:
Looks great! They are certainly high-shine and the colors on the sides give the pants a bit of an athletic look to them. These and the 2-tones are very nice. Personally I would stay away from the printed ones. Those do nothing for me. The patterns seem to take away from the shine element of the pants which just destroys the concept of disco pants. If AA wants to start dropping their disco pants line they can start with the printed ones.
Well, that’s all for now. You can tell I’m going through a major spell of disco pants obsession lately as I have been blogging frequently about it.
