With a sports shirt and maybe a dark brown poly sports jacket, you’d be right there in 1970’s style. Put on a different top and jacket and you could go late Sixties. Well, I guess they were cool then, and they’re cool now – for a different reason.
This pair was made by the Haggar company, which did make decent slacks, and they’re in great shape. The fabric feels very nice to touch and I’d wear them, too, if they were in a suitable size.
And the checked pattern – so iconic – much better than similar ones in a plain color. One thing about the poly knits, they did last pretty well if they were taken care of BUT it’s still not common to find men’s garments this well-preserved. So, it’s another treasure for the archives . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
