Le Gambi stretch golden golden high-waist straight leg slacks, the original one and only disco pant, that's time traveled here from the 1970s. They're officially a size 4, which is probably about right. Though there's some give, they're probably not as stretchy as the modern imposters--though I'm not sure, having never tried them on. Why would you when you have the real thing? Zip fly and button, not snap, high waist, no front pockets, two patch pockets on the butt, one has a 3" section that needs sewing back: easily done. Other than that, flawless.
Measurements: waist 26", hip 38", rise 11", inside leg 31"
STORY: These are the awesome original that was copied by American Apparel, and I think was their best selling thing ever. This would be because they are so flattering and comfortable. I'm only getting rid of them because I have other pairs. Plural.
