Disco was overrated when it was all the rage. I lived through it as a young adult in the 70's. The clothes were absolutely awful back then.

Damn Leisure Suits, pants with huge bell bottoms, platform shoes, enough hair gel to have your hair pass for a helmet, the "Mr. T Starter Set" of gold chains around your neck......…………..

When I played basketball in High School we had to dress up on game days. I usually kept it reasonable but I remember one time I borrowed an older Brothers clothes and dressed up somewhat similar to the C in the picture. I remember people telling me how great the clothes were. The pants had no back pockets.

Only the bell bottom pants, but not those high waisted things like in the pic.

Never owned a pair of platform shoes even though I'm all of 5' 9" short, and I thought the Leisure Suit thing was absolutely horrendous and never understood it.

I did have some shirts made out of velour that I got as birthday or Christmas gifts, but they never left the closet other than to go to Goodwill after not being worn for months.

I'm allergic to polyester, and only wore straight legged pants made of cotton, so Levis and Wrangler jeans it was. (Fucking flared leg bottoms always catching in bicycle chains, motorcycle foot rests, etc...completely unforgivable when you are an anti jock giving rides to giant boobed long haired girls who hate school, sports, piercings and tattoos, as all the nicest girls who looked best in the tightest clothes did in that time and place, girls who all owned "Disco Sucks!" T-shirts.)

What I wore in school were classic cotton canvas Converse Chuck Taylor high top sneakers (both black and white pairs) with fabric made waterproof after spraying and soaking in carpet Scotchgard. High tops meant I couldn't be given flats by other kids stepping on the backs of those sneakers in the hallways between classes (typical prank), double knotting them meant I couldn't be given motorboats or have my laces tied together (another common trick), and spitting water from the fountains onto our shoes and sneakers was a waste of time with the Scotchgard I used, so I wasn't targeted like other girls and boys in the blackboard jungle hellhole which tried to pass itself off as a "school" where I went.

Even though I went to public schools, the dress code back then (late 50's to 1970), I couldn't wear tennis shoes/trainers to school except in gym class.

High school dress code was jeans or long slacks, if the pants had belt loops you needed to wear a belt and all shirts with tails needed to be tucked in. The only exception was polo type shirts with the squared off bottoms. Shoes had to be casual dress to dress shoes but no canvas types. Hair could not be down the neck or over the ears (think Sheldon from the "Big Bang Theory" type haircut). Definitely no facial hair except for moderate sideburns that couldn't go past the ear lobe

Now, almost anything goes in public schools.
