19th Century Early Typical Regency Era Men’s Pants With Drop Down Front Flap. Breeches, pantaloons and trousers usually opened by front flaps which dropped down and were fastened with buttons. No belts but pants were instead held up by tight-fitting waists and adjusted to fit snugly by ties or buckles in the back. Back seats were baggy to allow a man to sit and stand comfortably. Early in the 1800s, the flap was usually a wide fall that went from hip to hip but later falls were narrower and went from hip-bone to hip-bone. Some European countries used narrow and straight from openings but in England pants generally had a fall front showing beneath the waist as vests and coats no longer covered the front of breeches. Typical of the early 19th Century men’s trousers as worn by the men in Jane Austen’s family and life. https://books2read.com/SuziLoveFashionMen1800-181919th Century Early Typical Regency Era Men's Pants With Drop Down Front Flap. #Regency #Men #Fashion https://books2read.com/SuziLoveFashionMen1800-1819 Click To Tweet
