In history or art history, global or otherwise, documents, works of art, and actual surviving clothing provide information about the history of costume as in other aspects of the construction of history and art history. The history of trousers offers a very good example of how a world history of costume may be outlined by considering some aspects of the history of one piece of attire. This lecture suggests how tracing trousers from their origins to the present provides us with a comprehensive world history of costume as one element of what provides a marker of global costume. This tale may be seen as offering a stimulus to the construction of world history and art history.
