Just a quick post to announce that I am just about to go out in my newly made spandex disco shorts!
I cut up an XL pair of the Chinese type a couple of evenings ago. Mind you, even though it’s a $10 item and not meant to last very long, it’s still painful to cut a perfectly pair of disco pants. But I did it. I didn’t hem the legs or anything. I just turn the crookedly cut hems inward a bit and leave it like that. But I have discovered that there is a vital importance in having them permanently hemmed. The inseam on the left leg has started to unravel a bit so when I get my official pair(s) made they will be pro hemmed.
Anyway, I am super excited! I feel similar to how I did the first time I went out in spandex disco jeans five years ago, though admittedly less self-conscious. As I have said many times these are a lot shinier than vintage and AA disco pants, and much shinier than any athletic spandex shorts I have or have seen in these modern times.
I will be wearing a button shirt with them. Yes, this shirt will cover up pretty much everything but since these shorts are not like the ‘hot pants’ disco shorts of the past and made by AA there will still be a lot to see as they go down nearly do my knees.
Anyway, will be leaving soon. Will mention anything noteworthy in another post.
