Pants It is a concept that derives from the French language and refers to a garment that is part of the clothing . The pants cover each leg separately and has its support at the waist.
For example: "My pants broke at the height of the crotch", “My girlfriend gave me black pants for my birthday”, "Put on your pants and make sure that visitors are coming".
It is possible to find pants of different lengths: they can reach the feet, ankles, knee height or even the calves. According to its extension, the pants can receive different names (which also vary according to the geographical region): shorts , bermuda , fisherman or capri pants and others.
A pair of pants always has at least three openings : one for the left leg, another for the right leg and a third for the waist. Typically, they have an additional opening, although with a zipper or closure, at the height of the genital area. They can also have pockets to store various objects (keys, money , etc.).
It is important to note that there are pants for women and men. Usually, the cuts and design vary to best suit the anatomical conditions of each gender .
Likewise, it should not be overlooked that in many activities one type or another of pants is required in order to carry them out safely and comfortably. In this way, for example, skiing requires that the garment adequately protect the person from the cold and possible damage from falls. That is why it is necessary that it is long, that it has thermal filling, that it has a waterproof membrane and that it offers breathability.
According to material and to the design, the pants can be an elegant and formal garment (like the pants that, together with a jacket, form a suit ), or a garment that is used on everyday occasions (the Jean or cowboy , he jogging ).
In addition to all of the above we have to expose the existence of the pants skirt. As the name implies, it is a perfect mix between both garments. So, apparently it is a skirt but, in reality, it is a pair of pants.
It should not be overlooked either that there are various colloquial expressions that use the term pants. Thus, for example, we find the following:
• "Take off your pants." It is used to record that someone has yielded in some aspect or has ended up accepting something that, in principle, was not willing to tolerate and that is precisely not beneficial.
• “Tie the pants”. In some countries, such as El Salvador or Costa Rica, this verbal speech is used at the colloquial level to establish that a person has armed himself with courage and courage to face a situation.
• “Wear the pants at home”. In Spain this expression is widely used to talk about sentimental relationships. Thus, it is said that the person who wears the pants at home is the member of the couple who orders more and that he is usually the one in charge of making the decisions.
