My 2 Chinese disco pants finally came in yesterday and I was glad for it. My first pair of black ones has those overstretched lines that develop on the crotch seam and are getting longer each time I put the pants on. My 2nd pair has a busted zipper. So I welcomed my 3rd pair in large as well as my 1st pair in X-large.
Upon someone’s advice I ordered an XL and I’m pretty happy with the result. I figure since it is somewhat looser it should last longer. It does fit a little looser around the crotch, bum and knees but still a skintight fit as it should be. I’m pretty sure I will have shorts made out of an XL pair. I have to make sure to order a few more pairs. Hey, at this price you cannot lose, right? When American Apparel lowers the price on their black ones to about $30 then I’ll get some of them, too.
I’m not sure if I will get the other colors this Chinese vendor has. As I learned when I got the grey ones, they are noticeably thinner, shorter and tighter fitting when compared to the same size in black. Here are photos from the seller:
The top photos are of the actual pants they sell and you will get when you buy. The bottom photos, though on their ebay page, are clearly American Apparel’s disco pants as evidenced by the rounded pockets and their higher placement. I guess they have no reservations about using AA’s photos even though it is not the exact product they are selling.
Regardless, if I were a girl I would buy these up in every color and just wear them all the time. I mean why even wear any other kind of pants? The occasional skinny jean or jegging is fine. But these are great for spring, summer and fall. For winter I would just get some leather leggings.
On my black size large I measured the rise to be 13 inches. That is pretty darn long and if you do manage to wear them all the way up, the button and zipper tend to sit way up high which worn with a longer top tends to give the impression that you’re wearing regular shiny leggings or lycra tights. Were it not for the pockets. As I wrote they are positioned somewhat lower on the back as compared to AA’s so they are more visible on the behind.
I still highly recommend these pants. Don’t get them absolutely skintight though because they will not last. Any size you get will be a little difficult to get your feet through but from then on it should not be a struggle to pull them up and button/zip them. If it is they are too tight and will probably last only one wearing. I would not dare go to a size medium at this time. I will stick with large and X-large. I may try one more pair in a different color but in size XL just to see how the fit compares. Probably go with royal blue.
Here’s a measurement chart they provide:
That’s all for now.
