Basic Types of Men’s Pants
Pants, slacks, or jeans are an example of a piece of clothing which could have originally originated in Central Asia, initially covering only the lower legs, with loose rolls around the mid-section to allow for freedom of movement. The word pants in its present day context usually refers to those articles of clothing that are made out of denim or some other fabric which can be easily sewn together. Some examples of pants include shorts and vests, although not all items in this category are actually pants, as there are many varieties of jeans which can be considered pants. It should be noted that jeans are traditionally more worn by men, although this has relaxed in recent years. Women still prefer pants to any other article of clothing.
There are two main categories of pants – the jacket type which is a long piece of cloth that extends around the lower part of the body, and the trouser style which are similar in design but do not extend very far up the leg. A common feature of these two types of pants is that the pants reach a considerable waistline, making it difficult for women with larger hips to wear them without having to worry about their lower half being exposed. It should be noted that there are also various other variations of pants which may refer to different styles of skirts or blouses. For instance, the term skirt is commonly used to describe any type of short garment which is generally worn on legs that are shorter than the garment itself, while the term blouse refers to any type of undergarment which is generally worn on the upper body and reaches above the knees.
The term jean refers to pants, although not all of these items technically qualify as pants. Trousers, leggings, or jeans are generally worn over a dress or other type of upper body garment, covering the leg at the ankle. Trousers are commonly seen as work wear, although they can be used for a variety of other situations. Skirts and blouses are typically seen as work wear because of their relative ease in getting in and out of, as well as their tendency to cover the entire leg, but do not have the level of concealment which pants provide.
