Pants

Trousers (niderl. broek), or Pants (the Kyrghyz. Istan) — the subject of outerwear covering the lower body, including each leg separately, covering the knees. In the classic version at the bottom of the trousers reach the ankle or upper foot. Worn on the waist or on the hips. For fixing the upper edge can be used for belt, webbing, suspenders. Often there is a fly, or the codpiece — a slit-valve, which is fastened with buttons, snaps or zippers.


During the excavation of the cemetery Anhui (Yanghai), located near the oasis of Turfan (North-West China), two sarcophagi were discovered pants age about 3 thousand years. It is assumed that the appearance of the trousers associated with the early use of horses for riding (with bare feet uncomfortable to ride).

the Ancient Greeks and the ancient Romans, as a rule, did not wear pants (the Greeks wore the himation, and the Romans — toga). Pants they perceived as a distinctive sign of the barbarians.

the Word "pants" appeared in the Russian language much earlier. It has a Turkic origin (Istan, išton). In Turkic languages this word means underpants or briefs.

the Word "pants" (from niderl. broek) appeared in Russia in the XVIII century, in connection with Peter's reforms, and originally meant "pants man". Initially, each leg of the seaman was a separate object, so in many languages the name of this type of clothing is the noun plural or dual number. Although the trousers are traditionally considered in pairs and are used only in the plural, however in the Russian marine terminology is preserved the term "pukanec" used in the singular. In appearance pukanec is "half press", as the sleeve covering the annular gap between the deck and the mast and prevents the ingress into the hold of the water flowing down the mast[5]. Really common the word "pants" was only a hundred years later. Because the pants were actually an indicator of social status, in addition to courtiers wore them also representatives of the highest aristocracy.
