Angels Flight - A Pants Flashback to the '70s

Growing in up in late '70s also meant living with the fashion trends of the time. For men it was owning one if not more pairs of Angels Flight slacks. These pants were manufactured from polyester material with seams on the front and back. They were also designed to be flared at the bottom and tight.

As I recall, I thought the Angels Flight label pictured a cable car. I was absolutely wrong upon discovering the Angels Flight rail in downtown Los Angeles. Why the pants were named after a rail is beyond me. But these pants combined with a silky long-sleeved polyester shirt and platform shoes will complete the look for a Halloween costume. But at least John Travlota looked cool enough using similar clothes in so many iconic images as star of the Parmount Film "Saturday Night Fever".
