The Greeks and Romans thought trousers were only
for barbarians. Well, who's laughing now,
Aristotle? It turns out even togas were better than
what we were wearing pre-1800: breeches, the
creepy, end-at-the-knee short pants that make you
look like a plate of frog's legs. It took the
French Revolution to bring the world to its senses.
The guillotine experts who ran the country
associated knee breeches with the aristocrats whose
