Pegged pants are a type of pants that became popular in the 1950s and 1980s. A pegged pants are trousers cut full in the waist and thigh area that taper to a cuff or gather at the ankle. Some pegged pants styles have a full cuff with buttons; while others gather around an elastic band.
Modern peg-leg trousers are easy to spot. Most have two front pleats that meet at the waistband and expand out down the thighs only to taper again at the ankles. Some pegged pants can be high-waisted and cropped at the ankle.
The trend was originally popular among men but soon later became the norm for women too as it was thought that the style fit a woman’s body shape better. Since then there have been several peg-style clothing designs.
