Are these 70s? I was a teenager in the U.S. in the 70s, but never saw these then. I thought they were 80s or 90s? Just wondering?

Noo, punk started in the mid 70' just didn't get more popular until the 80's.

I didn't understand what these were when I first heard about them being worn in London in 1977. I was completely innocent of S&M wear and had no idea that's where they came from, and the punk ones Vivienne Westwood made at the time certainly didn't look sexy to me. And the punk stuff was completely at odds with the natural, earth-tone styles popular for most of the 70s. I saw my first pair for real in the early 80s on a punk-ish friend and couldn't figure them out. Why the bum flap? Now I know why the bum flap because I've since learned about S&M styles, but back then, it just didn't make sense. And people said the hobbling bondage straps were some sort of statement again societal strictures, but really they were part of the bondage element of Bondage and Discipline S&M stuff and Westwood probably didn't care about society at all. Anyway, some of them did look cool in the 80s, but they really didn't fit in with the 70s styles most people wore.

@ Dean Garrett "but they really didn't fit in with the 70s styles most people wore." That was basically the idea of punk - not to fit in!
