Trousers or What 2
Which Is It pants, pantaloons or trou
sers? "Pants," which Is as bad as "gents," Is
probably a corruption of pantaloons. The
word "pantaloon" Is derived from the
breeches and stockings, all in one piece,
which were worn by the pan ta!one,a masked
figure in Italian comedies, and who corre
sponds to the harUquIn of modem panto
mime. The word "trousers" is derived from tbe
old French word "trousses." the naino of
the page's loose breeches, tied or trussed up
"Trousers," however. Is, by good usage
and common consent, the correct word to
use, and we will just add that the proper
place to see the brightest newest line of
