So I tried on both cheapie disco pants on again tonight for some photos. I mentioned the grey ones are shorter than the black ones and here’s how they look on:
I’m wearing running sneakers in the photos just to show the shortness of the pants. I know it’s not too bad. They’re a little bit better with Converse high tops and Dr. Martens boots but still feel somewhat lacking in length. If I haven’t already said it these pants are super comfortable and look great. I don’t know why guys who wear leggings or meggings don’t choose to wear these pants. (Speaking of meggings–I don’t know why they make them with side panels. That seems and looks a little weird to me. I would just opt to wear these leggings-style disco pants and no one would be the wiser).
I also tried my 2nd pair of black ones on again tonight. The button came off! That leads me to mention that the button on these pants is not sewn on or pressed on as they are on higher quality disco pants. On these it seems to be just inserted into a small hole in the material and if that hole is too big the button will come out. Fortunately, I inserted it back in its hole and it stayed it place as I wore the pants for a little bit.
I also had a little bit of trouble with the zipper. It seems to have unzipped below the pull tab as I was wearing the pants. I had to remove the pants, readjust one side that had misaligned and zip it back down. After that I put the pants back on, buttoned and zipped without any problems. Despite these things I still love these pants, still highly recommend them and will purchase more. As someone suggested I may try a size XL just to see how it fits.
I might recommend to anyone who buys them to replace the button and zipper but after all that the pants may end up costing double or more. Still not a bad deal but a great money saver if you can do that yourself.
On a final note, it does seem that American Apparel no longer has the 3-tone disco pants for sale. At least not online. I do not know when this happened but I just checked today and they don’t sell them anymore. Just the regular disco pants, the 2-tone and the prints. Long live disco pants.
