I had a sa-weet Angel's Flight suit that was the hit of the Bell Jr. High dances. That combined with my flowing locks, beautifully tanned skin, and puka shells should have made me quite a hit with the junior high chicas. Should have. :rolleyes:

Sheesh, even my dad didn't wear those, although some of his shirts were defnitly plasticky. It's all a misty recollection of bad TV images, suit-wise.

Own my Dad's, wear it to our friends Disco bong parties. Powder blue and it is the shiznit....I always get some when I wear it..........except when i grow a 'stash to really be in character, then it's just Manuela who digs me....if I was a bigger man I'd post a pic but, well, if I ever run for office......

Dad had a tan leisure suit.

I am proud to say, I've never worn polyester bell bottoms.

Heck... I still have mine.

Electric blue and tan with wide bells. Ruffled shirts and some with really wide collars. All poly. First class!

Had to finally ditch the platforms because they dragged on the road in the turns and couldn't mount cleats on them.

No #&$%in' way--I was into my cowboy drag phase then (safely pre-Brokeback, thank gawd), until Travolta screwed that up, too, with that "Urban Cowboy" rubbish. I gave up on style at that point, and simply became the slob I am today.

No on the suit, but I still have one pair of polyester bells

Found 'em in a box of stuff in the garage the other day, the worst kind of grab-your-leg-hair, hold-in-the-sweat polyester wi-i-i-i-de leg bell bottoms. Bought them in 1969 right after I got home from Vietnam. The accompanying floral-print Qiana shirt sadly has been lost.
Who knew polyester shrank in storage, though? I tried to put them on, and they've apparently lost about six inches in the waist.

Wow.. had I even been born then (born in '89) and worn one before (as far as I know, liesure suits are somewhat reminisce of a unitard..), I'm not sure if I'd be admitting to it here; but then again, I shave my legs and wear spandex :)

Amazing how that happens! I, at one time, swore that I "would never wear
straight legged pants again!" If anyone sees me in bell bottoms now, please put me out of my misery! I must admit, though, that I had several
prs
of "navy bell bottom jeans" that I wore until they fell apart. Most comfortable pr of jeans-ever.​

Don't hold J's back, you moreon, the new guy has to pass The Rites to earn some Lounge Credibility Status. Didn't you read the guidelines? :rolleyes:
