A Look at Some Different Types of Men’s Pants
Slacks, pants, or trousers are a piece of clothing which may have originally originated in Central Asia, most likely covering both legs at the knees. They are also called Korean slacks (hyegyeolpa) and Japanese slacks (sekiwoo) and come in a variety of colors, patterns, and designs, as well as being used in a variety of different professions. Most commonly, they are worn by men in their 30’s and below. However, it is now possible to find women wearing them as well.
Slacks on the knee are most commonly used for everyday wear, often worn with a shirt over top. Men’s pants tend to be wider than those of the women, with narrower legs. Women’s pants are much narrower, with narrower legs and larger amounts of material at the legs; these make pants very comfortable and convenient for many activities. Slacks are also commonly used in sports such as baseball and football, and are not gender defined.
Trousers, pants, or leggings are an undergarment which may be loosely or formally worn. They can be part of a dress code or used as part of an informal attire. Trousers or pants can be used as leggings, forming a loose-fitting garment, which is similar to sweat pants, except that the material covering the legs is much tighter, unlike sweat pants which tend to be looser in the leg area. Trousers or pants, and sometimes jeans or skirts, are frequently worn by men, as a casual wear, as a second layer of clothing underneath a jacket or coat, for protection against cold, for work purposes, for sports, and for casual dress. The outer garment of pants is made up of material that covers the ankle and sometimes the lower calf, sometimes ending at the knee, and can be made of cotton, polyester, wool, leather, or other natural fibers, with printed or embroidered patterns on them.
