On Saturday I received 5 of the 6 pairs of disco pants I ordered about two weeks ago. I was advised I would be getting two separate packages so I’m not not worried. The pair I did not receive was the black one. I have plenty to say so here goes….
First of all, this set of pants has the same sizing inconsistencies as the others. I purchased all XL and some fit skintight while others fit quite loose. The interesting thing is that the blue fit exactly the same as the blue from the last order–that is, very loose. On the other hand, the red & purple fit skintight just as they did from the previous order. The purple had a somewhat higher rise which made for a bit of an awkward fit at the waist.
I also received two other colors–gray & gold. The gray fit disappointingly loose as the blue. The gold was the literal ‘gold mine’ in this order. It fit skintight and the color is so nice. I am very pleased with the gold pair.
Ultimately it seems that these sellers have basically the same pants. While one may have a few extra colors they are the same disco pants with the same inconsistencies. Here are photos of the pants as I received them and some fit pics:
There you have it! Looks like this order came with two losers, namely the blue and grey. I’m not sure if I should try to reorder them in large or medium. Problem is last year I had ordered a grey in large from another seller and it was a very skintight fit. So I’m just not sure.
But as you can see, the purple and red fit just like the others from the last order. The gold is definitely a great addition.
I have yet to received the black pair which as of today, Tuesday, has not arrived. And there is still the order I placed last week which is due to arrive. Can’t wait for those!
That pair of disco cutoff shorts I wear regularly had that little issue of the inseam threads unravelling a bit. Well, I bought some Fabri-tac and glued the two parts of the seam together and it is just fine now. In fact, I don’t think I will do anything else with these shorts. I’m going to leave the crooked-cut legs as are and not have them hemmed. But any other pairs I make will have a nice, straight seam.
By the way, I did wear my shiny cutoff shorts today again. It’s now the 7th time I’ve done so.
