Today I took my size large, two-tone AA disco pants to get altered. It’ll be a week before these awesome pants get done. I can’t wait to see how they turn out. I only tried them on once and they were surprisingly tight on the waist. Tighter than any other large AA disco pant I have ever tried on. That’s good because I don’t want loose fitting disco pants and because I would rather not alter the medium I have—not only because I’d like to keep them as is but also because they are already showing some signs of wear from the couple times I wore them out and for photo shoots. That’s the price you pay for skintight disco pants!
I went there wearing my altered brown AA disco pants. Felt great being in them. Wore a slightly longer jacket on top. And white Converse sneakers. The weather was absolutely great for disco pants and sneakers today. Tomorrow will be again and thus I plan on wearing disco jeans then, too. And even though Friday will drop twenty degrees from tomorrow’s high temperature, it will still be perfect disco pants weather so I’ll make it three in a row. Once you start wearing these thing you don’t want to stop, you know? Anyone else feel this way about them? I know there were some girls famous for always being seen in disco pants, including Zoe Sugg, better known as ‘Zoella’. She became famous for, well, being famous. I won’t be too mean to her though because she was a devoted disco pants wearer, even beyond their peak popularity. Of course now at the ancient age of 28 she probably wouldn’t be caught dead in them. I don’t know any others by name but if you look around online long enough you’ll find some really diehard fans who had the pants in a number of colors.
While I’m on the subject I would like to salute all the women, younger and older alike, who still wear disco pants. And I know there are a number of them as well and I really appreciate them for not just being blind followers of fashion. OK, so AA is still selling disco pants which technically means they’re not out of fashion. But it is safe to say that their initial peak has passed and there are many fashionistas and fashionista-wannabes who would not touch them with a ten-foot pole or even admit to having worn them at some point. But I don’t want to focus on them. I want to focus and celebrate the ones who still wear them. If you look around on various social media you will find some who frequently wear their disco pants even now in 2019. I even made a friend with one who has them in various colors and appears to wear them regularly. With my luck of course, she is taken. But she looks very, very, very nice in her disco pants and fills them very richly.
This reminds me of a comment someone left on one of my posts a while ago. The guy thought I was gay because I am into spandex disco pants. I thought that was weird. I don’t see what a preference for a certain garment would have to do with one’s sexual orientation. I’m sure many hetero guys would love to wear spandex—disco pants or other—in public, but they have been so beaten down by societal tradition and the talk of ‘manning up’ that their brains will not even allow for the possibility to consider wearing that other than as a joke or a Halloween costume. Yet isn’t it ironic that the two sports they love so dearly–football & baseball–feature men wearing tight, spandex pants and in the case of football, tight and shiny! I find that so ironic it’s laughable. I must admit I have never followed either of those sports, but in the past before I started buying spandex disco pants I did watch some college football only because the players’ shiny spandex pants reminded me so much of disco jeans! I probably never watched any full games but I sure rooted for the team with the shinier pants, lol. And I refuse to believe that some of those guys did not fully enjoy wearing those pants in the public eye. Who knows, perhaps that’s even why some of them chose to play football in the first place.
After I get the altered two-tone pants my next priority will be the midnight navy in medium. I’m just so pleased with the two altered mediums I already have in charcoal and brown that I want the midnight as well. And I’m going to go with the new pair I have. I thought I had three mediums in this color but apparently I only have two so I’m going with the new pair. I figure I am going to give it a good amount of wear so might as well go with a sturdy new one. If I ever branch out into leggings-type I’ll wear the used one I picked up not too long ago.
There’s currently a brown medium on ebay for only $250! Get it while you can!! There’s also a used cranberry red for $188 and the (fake) lavender one still there for $150. How much are you guys willing to pay for disco pants? Particularly for harder-to-find ones. I’m not willing to pay all that much unless it’s a brand new pair of the vintage type or it’s a color that I really want. In terms of AA pants the only color I still really want is forest green but I won’t be paying anywhere near $100 for it.
That’s all for now. Look forward to my next disco jeans excursion.
