Hello everyone,

Were the half-"Pluderhosen" contemporary with the "Pluderhosen" or the half-"Pluderhosen" appeared before the "Pluderhosen" or disappeared after the "Pluderhosen"?

Thank you.

I do not know how you differ between the terms, and actually cannot imagine what you mean with "half-Pluderhosen"?

Expanding the trousers with additional wool or clothing started in the 1530ies, and a contemporary report of the battle of Jemgum 1533 tells of the Frisians dumping their inlets to enable faster "regrouping" (they ran like hell).

It is well known, the half – "Pluderhosen" indicates that only one leg was covered and the other was bare…
