--- the only trousers a hippy
will ever wear. the only trousers for trendies
and hippies in the '70s, but went out of style except for hippies who still wear them, and believe they will eventually come back in fashion. This is like the Second Coming for hippies. Flares eventually got even wider and became LOONS
, before disappearing from the real world.
FLARES were often converted from normal jeans by adding pieces of old curtains until they looked like jeans with inverted lampshades attached.
