She's gone to Capri...

Anyone remember the Capri cigarette ads?

Anyway, since I posted that I've reconsidered my position on capri pants I've started noticing them all over town. This is just a few of the short trouser-wearing ladies I've seen around.

Let me tell you - I'm old enough ;-) - that the photos are showing a near miss. In the 60'is there was only stiff ironed fabric (cotton I assume)- so no strech, no jeans...

I'm finding that until I get the Dutch-style bike, the capri pants are coming in handy with my American no-chain-guard bike on trips to the store. No grease on the pants and if it gets on my leg I can wipe it off much easier. Plus, it's fun for the summer.

I am a big fan of my shants. Yes, Shorts/Pants. Shants.

I bought these by endovanera - they come up just a bit in the back of the waist as well to prevent bikers-butt. But they were not, I repeat NOT, purchased as cycling clothing. I wear them regularly, which includes cycling.

Just found your blog -- this is an old post now, hope you'll see it.

When I was a girl in the mid-60's, capri-style pants were popular. In those days, they were called "pedal-pushers".
