Blue jeans were recognized and worn long before the sixties. And if you want to see who really started that flair look craze, look no farther than the Navy.
Good point, Dru. ;)
Thank you, Piper. I have my moments. :)
Well Dru, my father was in the Navy when I was born and long before that. Although I never actually saw him wearing those "bell bottom" pants in person, I've seen them in pictures and up close.
Those were "bell" bottom pants, for sure. ;)
No, I never owned a pair. But I have seen them in stores now.
I curious as to when they were made: recently or many years ago?
I had no idea they were still being made. I never see them.
In the early 70's as a young child. They were part of my marching band uniform and had bright red flares in the lateral side from the knee down. When you mix that with our buccaneer hats, we looked like tiny little pimps playing the drums.
"tiny little pimps playing the drums."
I'll go ahead and "agree" that is was an adorable look, because I've noticed that the disagrees and agrees are of concern to you. :)
Yes, I wore bell bottom pants in the 70's. Mainly because most jeans and other pants were just made that way, as I recall, especially those appealing to young folks.
Amirite prefers Agrees...it's not me. You get higher scores with agrees than disagrees. That's how the system works. :)
Bellbottoms are still made today..but styled differently.
Scores? OH, I see....
Yeah, I guess they are. I don't see many people wearing them, though.
I love bellbottoms, if i can get them i wear it, was part of my growing up in the 60s and 70s.
I grew up in the 60's. Of course I wore them, and liked them. There are also some things I wore that I am glad there is no photographic evidence of.
There were some things that even I wouldn't wear.
So you weren't a regular at Studio 54, I take it.
I grew up on a farm. Most of the 60's didn't get there till 1985, and by that time, I was long gone.
LMAO! So you guys had just discovered the Stones and the Grateful Dead by 1985?
Naw... the music made it because of a radio station called KOMA out of Oklahoma City which was awesome for the time. Things like micro mini skirts and things like that, are what never made it. Hell some of those things, still haven't made it in.
To think of all the 'legs' you have missed.
Bellbottoms are especially clever since they can balance out a round tummy or bum.
Everybody wore bellbottoms at least once during the sixties. They were hard to avoid. Same as nowadays it's hard to avoid little girl clothes saying "I'm a little sex pot" or some such.
Oh I love bellbottom jeans or flair pants. I refuse to wear that skinny jean shit
Skinny jeans are so unattractive if you have a bum.
