Breeches were the only acceptable type of trousers or pants during the 1700s. Also referred to as colonial knickers, breeches were the fashionable choice in the 18th century. A pair of knickers covered the body from the waist down to the knees. Breeches typically button or fasten beneath the knee.
All colonial men, from famed revolutionaries like the Founding Fathers to renowned historical men such as Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson, wore breeches as the very base of their formal and casual attire. Men and young boys alike wore colonial knickers, and it was an essential rite of passage for a boy to graduate from an infant’s clothing to a pair of breeches. Once a boy reached age six or seven, he was presented with his first pair of breeches, signaling his move towards adulthood. In turn, colonial pants became a symbol of America’s growth and evolution in its earliest years. Men followed George Washington, America’s first president, and a revolutionary war hero, who wore colonial breeches when he took to the political stage and the battlefield.
All colonial Knickers (Knee Breeches) come with an elastic waist and elastic at the bottom of each leg for easy adjustability.
