- subject matching 'Fashion Plates: Men - Legwear - Pantaloons; tights'
Pantaloons were shaped to the leg and ended just below the calf until 1817; then at the ankles, usually with short side-slits and strapped under the foot. By the 1840s they were just worn for evening dress when they were increasingly known as tights, and for walking and riding.
