I saw this 1970's Simplicity sewing pattern on http://www.specialistauctions.com/ which was recentlylisted by seller wickedladycollectablesI immediately remembered a pair of green/black check Oxford Bags that i used to own, they were all the rage in the early 70's.
Oxford bags were a loose-fitting baggy form of trouser worn by members of the University of Oxford in the early 1920's upto the 1950's and they made a second comeback in the 1970's. I remember wearing my green checked baggies with bright yellow/black platform shoes!
1970s groups such as The Bay City Rollers and Slade wore a variant of oxford bags with tartan trimmings that fell short of ankle-length.
If you love the 1970's specialistauctions has a variety of items forsale from that era including this:-
Empty 1970's Avon cream sachet bottle/jar with pale purple plastic lid, green glass jar/bottle. Field of flowers.
