Abe Lincoln's Trousers

I think it's time to clear this up ....... Victorian men would not have been caught dead wearing a pair of breeches. 
They wore trousers - just like today's men.

Think Alexander Graham Bell,

Thomas Edison

and Abraham Lincoln.

Breeches are tight pants that come to just below the knees and are worn with tall men's stockings. Men of the 18th Century wore them.    That means in the 1700's.

Think Little Lord Faunlery,

Louis XV

and George Washington.

Pants are important.

Let's stay focused.

If this looks Victorian to you, please reread the text.
