Breeches

knee-length trousers

Breeches (pronounced [ˈbritʃɪz] or [ˈbrɪtʃɪz]) is a type of clothing that males wear that covers the body from the waist down, with different coverings for each leg, usually stopping just below the knee, though sometimes reaching to the ankles. The breeching of a young boy, at an age somewhere between six and eight, was a completion in his childhood.
