Disco Pants Make For Good Golf Pants

Model Citizen Steve Brickman recently got in touch via email, humoring us with a tale of how his Disco Pants made for excellent golf pants.

“A while back I found your company while searching for Smoking Jackets, because I thought it would be cool to have one.  I dug yours and stuck it on my “wish list”, along with the Disco Pants, which I thought would be cool golf pants (rather than the typical Loudmouth pants everyone wears.)

Anyway, the story is really around golf.  I suck at golf, there are people who are bad, but I eclipse them by miles.  So I thought the Disco Pants would level the field by blinding those around me.  I do two tournaments each year with the same group of people.  This picture is from the first one, but my story is from the second.

Last weekend we were at Plumas Pines golf course in Graeagle California.  We were the second foursome who was going to tee, and before the tee-off there was a putting contest.   It is like 8:30 in the morning – I’m out watching the foursome in front of us navigate the putting contest, trying to learn the angles.  Meanwhile, on the loudspeaker is the bored voice of the announcer, telling everyone the rules of the tournament, then he goes on to discuss the putting contest.   In the middle of this I hear “…Don’t forget to go to the putting green <pause>  HOLY SHIT, LOOK AT THOSE PANTS!! “,  followed by a “ I’ve never seen anything like that, oh, well… back to the rules… yeah go to the putting green, you can’t miss where it is right now…

I looked around and wasn’t sure who he was talking about for all of 2 seconds.  Could be that my Betabrand pants left an impression.   Throughout the weekend I was asked no less than 30 times where the heck I found such pants.  And a disturbing number of people wanted to feel them and were amazed at how light they were.

Our foursome got highest gross score, which is the not good award.  But that was to be expected.

There is also a video of the sparkliness from the cabin in the morning sun.   The pants were epic.  Though from what I understand, they weren’t quite as blinding when the sun was up as they were in the morning.  This video was from 7:30 in the AM, INSIDE the crappy old dated little cabin I was staying in:

Thanks for making such flexible and comfortable golf pants!  (even though you probably never intended for them to be golf pants)

PS – you have the only marketing material I love to read, it must be fun as heck working at Betabrand, getting to write silly item descriptions!”
