I think those shoes are Fires ("Fee-rays"), not EB's. By 1985, most climbers had switched over to the super-sticky Fires. Also, painter's pants were a 1970's thing. (People wore 'em because Hot Henry was wearin' 'em.) By 1985, the classic painter's pants look was rare. It would be like wearing day-glo, late-80's lycra tights today.
