How to use "Pantaloons" in context?

When one thinks of pants, typically what comes to mind are jeans and khakis. But in the late 18th century the pantaloons were the must-have style of clothing for men. They were tight fitting at the ankle and fit very snugly around the waist. Pantaloons were also made out of materials such as wool and linen, which made them warm and comfortable. However, despite their many positives, pantaloons were not very popular and were only worn by the wealthy and elite.
