Mens Jogging Bottoms, slacks, or jogging bottoms are an item of clothing that may have originated in Central Asia. It worn from the waist to the ankles, covering both legs separately.
In the United Kingdom, the word pants generally means underwear and not joggers. Shorts are similar to mens jogging bottoms. But with legs that come down only to around the area of the knee. It may be higher or lower depending on the style of the garment. To distinguish them from shorts, joggers may be called “long-trousers” in certain contexts such as school uniform, where tailored shorts may be called “short-trousers” in the UK. The oldest known joggers, dating to the period between the thirteenth and the tenth centuries BC, were found at the Yanghai cemetery in Turpan, Sinkiang (Tocharia), in present-day western China. Made of wool, the trousers had straight legs and wide crotches and were likely made for horseback riding.
