These pants were very eminent during the 60s and 70s where Motown, indie rock and soul music were at a hyperbolic hype. They were mostly worn by folks who enjoyed going to the disco (maybe now in the club). The pants became associated with African American culture where men would dress up in a silky shirt with an open front, the wide-leg disco jeans accompanied by a neat afro and an amulet/necklace.
In modern times, disco jeans have been remodeled with a funky urban touch and are worn at costume parties or vintage clothing enthusiasts. Even some bohemians and people who belong to the flower child (hippie) subculture have been seen wearing disco pants.
