when Jagger’s bandmates dragged him on tour in 1981 (reportedly against his will, according to Keith Richards’s memoir), and brought the band into sports arenas for outdoor concerts (something they seemed too artistically sophisticated to do), he put on football pants and barked out his lyrics like a quarterback yelling, “Hut hut!”

Jagger’s football pants phase remains one of his most divisive wardrobe choices, in a career packed with strange attire, from skin-tight jumpsuits to giant capes to uncanny yuppie getups.

The football pants allowed Jagger to move swiftly around the stage, and helped audiences see him from far-flung seats—that much is clear from the pictures. (Their fit and lace-up fly also had the benefit of highlighting Jagger’s crotch.) But the clash of colors wasn’t exactly in a harmonious team player spirit: he wore neon yellow pants with an electric blue tank top and a lavender blazer; white ones with either a neon teal puffer and a yellow quilted puffer; a construction cone-orange tank with tangerine pants. He’d often add red or blue kneepads, or a banded blue belt, which created an even more maniacal riot of color, and he’d take off his shirt and reassemble his outfit as he became increasingly sweaty or as the weather grew increasingly cool (the concerts, according to Rolling Stones message board IORR.org, often started at noon). Jagger’s insistence that these were just easy to work in is typical Jagger swagger and posture— of course, there was more to it than that.
