Disco will never die for this groovy bunch.

Mom+Dad are wondering where can they get a transfer back to 1955!
is that uma thurman?
This picture is made of pure awesome!
Could you bring me my chapstick?
I am the dude in the photo with the arms crossed. I was 15 or 16 at the time. My shoes were brown platforms with two inch heels. The last supper I won as a door prize. The carpet was green. Believe it or not we did not like disco. I am now a battalion chief in a small town fire department (Ocean Springs,Ms)
cris, you have a beautiful family…great photo…
Why does the guy in the middle have such an attitude? What could he be mad about?
Am I the only one who hears the theme song to Family Feud when looking at this picture?
LOL! That’s hilarious!
Oh, I wish wish wish I could see their feet. Earth shoes and cork soled sandals were sure to be in attendance.
I loved my Earth shoes : D
It’s not the clothes so much as the people.
wow. that’s a whole lotta denim suit goin’ on
Hey, I’m an old coot: This stuff NEVER looked good.
Will someone please pull the poor guy out of the sofa before it eats him?
how funny…i have 5 boys and 1 girl, with another boy due in a few weeks. i thought we were the only ones cursed with an inability to produce females.
Good Lord, how many leisures had to die to clothe this family?
Where is Fez?
It’s the Swedish junior mafia!
They all have the same nose. Cute!
Big collars, loud prints, Napoleon Dynomite hair; those were the days!
How many arrowhead chains are being worn around these guys necks would you guess?
Do you know how many polyesters had to die to clothe that family? Where is PETA? Do they not care that so many innocent creatures were slaughtered so that family could dress like that??
This is an awkward family photo because leisure suits didn’t make anyone automatically cool, even when they were in fashion. Only the brother in the middle with his arms crossed is coming close to pulling if off, but he’d look cool even if he were wearing a t-shirt and jeans. And, oy, how awkward to have such hip parents!
This was the early pilot for the Partridge family, but test audiences suggested not to have a older and a younger set of sibling, and more girls were needed. They also suggested replacing the metalic Last Supper decor on the wall with a cool trendy house.
What you doing in the back? AAAAhhhh!!!
What you doing in the back?
You should be dancing, yeah!
You should be dancing, yeeeeeeahhhh!!!
Dang falsetto gets me every time!
Huh. And here I always thought it was, “What’cha bewahbewahbewah? OOh, yeaah!”
Uh,huh,uh,huh,…stayin’ alive,stayin’ alive….(now I’m needing therapy again to get that song out of my head)
Hey, I never understood the words to that song before. Thanks.
AHHHHH, I LOLOVE IT!
Wow. It’s like only Grandad and Nan are the only ones who could pass modern fashion…just. Has to be a first. And I adore the ‘jeans-look’ leisure suits. They’re *always* cool.
My bad- I looked again and realised that must be mom next to the older fella. But still…
“Would ya just watch the hair. Ya know, I work on my hair a long time and you hit it. He hits my hair. “
The guy with his arms crossed in the middle resembles Jeff Daniels a little. Otherwise they look like some Wiiiild and a-craaazy guyzzz. And why does sister’s arm look like it’s being swallowed by her dress?
Can you say “Angel Flights”!?!
……lol. Great pic
These Guys put the L in Leisure Suit
Why is there always someone who says “gee, it isn’t awkward, it’s _____” … I say, who cares? cuz they’re all funny!
I agree! It’s entertainment folks. Lighten up and enjoy!
That is a WHOLE LOTTA polyester! Drop one match in that room and you’ve got a…DISCO INFERNO!
BURN BABY BURN!! LMAO
Burn that mutha’ down!
the best comment!!!
How is this awkward? Assuming it IS an old photo, as it appears, that was the fashion at the time.
That’s the problem, AmyT. This pic was just taken last week!
OMG! It’s the attack of the LEISURE SUIT!
I think I had the dress the girl is wearing.
My outfit was just like the guy second from the right. We were stylin’ and profilin’! Outtasight!
that’s a lotta kids. why do they all look the same age??
Damn, you can go hang gliding with those collars!
Disco is NOT dead!
Those guys could poke someone’s eye out with the length and sharpness of those collars–yikes!
Those aren’t collars, they’re compound bows.
Yes they are!
Not really awkward, just dated.
Oh the 70s were awkward indeed. At least this is a fall/winter photo. In the summer it was
butt cheeks hanging out of nylon shorts!
…making it awkward.
And the circle continues.
I agree. The only way it would be awkward is if it was taken recently.
At first I was thinking it was just a dated picture, but then I saw EVERY GUY IN THE BACK ROW. Well, the little cutie on the right looks like a champ, but what is going on with the rest of them?
Everyone in the photo now laughs at how they looked back then except for the dude second from the right. He thought he was “too cool to be true” then and he still does. He probably still has the shirt.
My thoughts exactely.
What do you mean “how they looked back then”? This has summer 2004 written all over it.
Your comment made me snort!!!
He reminds me so much of Kip from Napolean Dynamite it isn’t even funny! lol.
who says the leisure suit couldn’t bring a family together
Poor girl. 6 brothers to 1 sister; Bet she had fun growing iup!!!
I’ll bet she can handle herself in any crowd. She’ll take no crap from anybody!
Actually I think that the one in the brown suit is another girl???
Disco Stu found love and happiness I’m so happy!
I had a suit identical to the that the boy on the fast right is wearing!
me too…how funny this picture was taken last month…
and as soon as the flash went off, it instantly triggered the whole family into doin’ The Hustle…damn, those disco ball flashbacks…
Ah! Liesure suits & winged collars, nearly as handsome as the stylish Nehru jacket!
Too many Liesure suits at once… Overload!
