    My eyes, my eyes! The 70's was not known for fashion that's for sure!

    I wonder if any of the people who danced in the Soul Train Line Dance now cringe when they see their clothes and style... I probably would if it were me. icon_redface.gificon_lol.gif

    If you can watch either 1 Man 1Cup or this video all the way through without stopping or wincing in pain, you are a man.

    I had these great gray bell bottoms. No seam up the side. Covered my whole shoe. Loved those slacks....

    Some of it is making it's way back round. This is more kinda 80's. I think you would look smashing in that oatmeal colored sweater there, Steltom. Earth tones like that are good....they make people hungry.

    Well thank you though I do not believe those clothes are made in my size.
    It seems like that my family still ends up doing those line dances at weddings and such. Clothes a little less flamboyant though. Nothing beats the colors of the 70's.

    oo man if i had a time machine i would soo go back and experience that era...i believe soul train was the sole media outlet that inspired black music and talent. And those suits.......to die for. I know my dad still has at least one of them in his closet.

    That reminds me of when Theo could'nt get on Dance Mania but Cockroach did. Is it sad that the Cosbys raised me as a child through television?

    The rest of the world might have had Soul Train and Dance Fever, but here in Detroit we had something all our own during the 80's and early 90's. The New Dance Show was a local favorite for thousands of club going kids. The fashion is now kind of funny, but I sure do miss that underground, bass heavy music of late night clubs back in the day.

    If they were made in my size I would not wear them.
