I use to wear Navy jeans. As I recall, they were bells. Or slightly belled, I forget. One store in SLC sold them and everyone seemed to wear them.
And they were something like $4.00 or so per pair.
I also has plain bell bottoms and blue/white platform shoes. Please do not lose respect for me, but I swear, (I am now truly ashamed) I also occasionally wore a leisure suit. Kind of a light pink color. I was the bees knees.
I seem to recall looking like a young Mr. Furley from "Three's Company."
And the phrase "bees knees" is also gone. No, wait . . . I just brought it back. Hip, boss, rad, bitchin, gnarley, totally tubular, . . . are these still being used or am I just too bloody old? I rather like hip and boss and there was a time my car was rad and my bike was gnarley and when I got over the leisure suit, I was probably somewhat hip and in some circles, boss.
Now I am alive and that's good enough for me.
