So are American Apparel disco pants going by the wayside? Many colors are no longer available in any size while some are available in select sizes. Also, some are currently being sold at only $43. However the most popular colors, such as black, midnight navy, charcoal & red are still at $85. And all over twitter I reads tweets from girls that say things like “Remember when disco pants were a thing” or “2012 called and wants their disco pants back.” To me that sounds like talk strictly from trend-followers with no originality. Yet there are also plenty of girls on twitter talking about wearing their disco pants and some even how much they want to get their first pair. So I don’t know but I don’t think the disco pants fashion can last more than a couple more years. In fact, when AA is no longer selling them it will be safe to say they are no longer in fashion. But of course we lovers of disco pants care nothing about that and will continue to enjoy them for years on end.
I finally ordered a pair of those cheap Chinese disco pant dupes from ebay. A fellow disco pants aficionado has ordered a few and has pretty high praise for them especially considering the price. I ordered a large in black so I hope they fit. If they do not, I have other plans for them. Then I will order a larger size up and perhaps have them taken in to make disco shorts. And I mean real shorts, not those hot pants type shorts that pass for disco shorts.
