The history of medieval men's trousers

Mongolian horsemen wore pants as early as 1,000 BC. The Germanic waistband trousers even existed in the Iron Age. In ancient times, the typical woolen trousers were called bracae and were held in place with a belt. The spread of bracae was significantly influenced by the Celts. The Romans adopted the trouser type from the Celts, and it continued to be popular in medieval Britain.

The development of medieval trousers progressed slowly. It began with leg warmers, which were made of cotton, leather or linen. Until the 10th century, this type of stocking reached only to the knee. From the 12th century, leg warmers were supplemented by brooches, which resembled modern boxer shorts. They served to fasten the leg warmers and allowed quite deep insights, since the upper garments of the gentlemen in the late Middle Ages were increasingly shorter.

With the beginning of the 15th century, the medieval trousers for men developed further: similar to the tights known today, all parts were sewn together and the so-called pantalon was created. Variations appeared as the army kettlebell, the bloomers and the plunder trousers, which were adopted in the 16th century, especially by the common people.

Over time, the pantalon was made of firmer fabrics. It no longer had feet and reached only to the calf. Thus was born the culotte or knee breeches, which from the 16th century became popular among almost all classes and offered gentlemen of every generation a popular medieval trousers.
