Altered Charcoal AA Disco Pants Underway

Well, I didn’t wear disco pants on Friday nor did I take my charcoal pairs in to get altered. As I mentioned in my last post there is a lot of stuff happening. But I did go on Saturday and I wore disco pants. So a day late. And I end up with three wearings for the month.

The charcoal pants will be ready this coming Friday. I hope they turn out well. I’m really excited at the thought of having a pair in this color that I can wear more confidently. I am being pragmatic and allowing for the possibility that it will at worst be too short on me. Also I’m concerned slightly that the pants may end up with a flared look to them. I don’t mean like boot cut or, worse, bell-bottoms. But since the pants are around five inches wide around the knees and I want a seven inch hem there will be a slight widening of the pants on the lower legs. If it does turn out disastrous (hyperbole) I can always wear them inside my Ugg or Emu boots.

I decided to go with the large pair of charcoal disco pants. I really prefer the fit of the medium but it is noticeably shorter than the large and I need every iota of length I can get. I even compared one of my other medium charcoal pairs and it was shorter than the most recent medium pair I bought. Strange. Of course, if this turns out to be a stellar job I will strongly consider having the medium altered as well. That’s why I told them to save the remainder of the xxs pair I gave to use for extra material. The only problem–and I just noticed this on Thursday night–is that the xxs pair is a heckuva lot shinier than the large. Noticeably shinier. I don’t think it will be a big issue since it will be on the inside legs and not much will be used. But I do wonder why there is such a discrepancy in shininess of the two pairs. Three rather. The medium is shinier than the large but not as shiny as the xxs. So it’s either a result of the wash & wear habits of the previous owners or of different production run date discrepancies.

It has been very difficult to find a large pair of charcoal AA disco pants. Chances are I will probably not find another. Come to think of it, why would I want another? The fit is less than ideal. I mean, if I’m going to wear a pair that looks like leggings I want them to be tight as possible. That’s how the mediums fit. And that’s why I’m still considering having a medium altered. But we’ll see how the large goes.

October starts tomorrow. I could get the month started in the right way by wearing disco pants. Not sure I will but the possibility is certainly there. We’ll see what happens.
