La Eleganza

La Eleganza said hip without having to spell it in big letters.

I had bell bottom trousers with buttons on the split flair, but no one in Boston ever wore these bold threads.

Not even in the Sugar Shack, the home of black pimps of the Combat Zone. The house band was George Clinton’s Funkadelics.

“We took off our suits and everything and went totally ‘funkadelic,’ which meant we were naked onstage. The Sugar Shack, we used to transform our look. The owners called it ‘Pimps, hos and hippies.’”
